Yes, I assumed that was what Olivier meant <g>.

To clarify, the Web Audio API draws upon some OpenAL conventions.  FMOD was
investigated more for feature parity, than borrowing any actual API or
code...

Hi Tom,

In one of our previous meetings, Chris Rogers mentioned he drew upon specs
like OpenAL and FMOD in his Web Audio spec. The question of whether this
would lead to any IPR issues (the resulting w3c spec will be royalty-free)
was raised, and Chris suggested you'd be able to gauge whether there may be
any such issue.

The conversation was recorded here:

Do you, (to the best of your knowledge of course), foresee any issue there?

Thanks,
