However, software which utilises deCSS for the purposes of copying (which as soon as you bundle something with deCSS in you have access to) is illegal. It's almost as daft a situation as not being able to bundle an MP3 plugin for xmms anymore due to some rotter who has decided to patent a formula. Personally, I'd love xine to be bundled with FC2, but I think there is more chance of the current president of the USA being found to have anything other than bone between his ears!
