Wasn't there a Swede named Johanson or similar who got dudded over this? His
software had legal uses but could also be used illegally.
The reason Red Hat won't include a DVD player is the same
reason they don't ship an MP3 player, i.e. the formats are not open source.
This is the stated purpose of Fedora, to put together a Distro of
completely Open source products.
I b'lieve he problem with mp3 is patents. Altogether a different animal.
