It isn't a copyright issue, it is a patent infringement issue, and
anyone that distributes infringing software can be sued.  This means Red
Hat (as the primary distributor) as well as all the Red Hat mirrors
could be sued for distributing unlicensed MP3 software if MP3 software
was included in the distribution.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
