ANSI has membership fees, accreditation fees, and a scheme for
site licensing for access to standards documents. But I've never
heard of a license fee for *use* of ISO 639 or ISO 3166 codes.
Once you acquire the standard, you should be able to freely
use it. That is how ISO standards work.
Where are you hearing this from?
