The press release says:
  ISO does not subsequently charge a fee for use of the codes in the software product and has no
  plans for doing so.  

the ISO 3166 code list page says:
  The incorporation of the complete ISO 3166-1 standard document in commercial products may be
  subject to a charge.

Maybe the phrase 'standard document' is sufficient.

It previously read:
  The use of ISO 3166-1 in commercial products may be subject to a licence fee.
  --  web archive 1 april 2003 copy of the above URL available at

But it doesn't read so clear as the press release.
