The only "usefull" would be AES50-2005 because it is  royalty-free.

([..] SuperMAC provides 48 channels bi-directionally over Cat 5 cable,
while HyperMAC provides up to 384 channels bi-directionally over Cat 5 or Cat 6 or fibre.
The signal format includes embedded clocks in the same way that AES3 does. [...] )

There is association AES50 Trade Association  http://www.aes50ta.org/

For non commercial usage they are planning to give free SDK for dsp platforms.
([...] Software Development Kits (SDKs) for use with Xilinx Spartan-3E and -3S series field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) [...])


For commercial usage they charge £500 towards administration costs.
Details of licensing can be found here http://www.supermac-hypermac.com/licensing.php

Nevertheless, I can support open protocol development with my work since I am writing right no my theses on audio networking.
