I understand that, and I understand that I can't expect fedora to have
mp3 decoder on their hosted servers but I thought you have freedom of
speech, no? Weren't there some court cases that said that you can
write anything? Is it illegal to put this on the fedora wiki:

"rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-9.rpm";

or it I leave that line out is this illegal:

"yum install -y gstreamer-plugins-ugly gstreamer-plugins-bad"
