It would be nice to somehow inform the user about those issues when he
first tries to open media which is potentially illegal to access or
endangered with patent issues. A really nice suggestion in this
direction can be found in this article:

http://chabada.sk/better-desktop/
(see section "Easy multimedia codecs installation")

Another thing would be a tool such as Easy Ubuntu for fedora:

http://easyubuntu.freecontrib.org/

IMHO the non GPL-stuff must stay out of fedora because it restricts the
freedom of a certain user, but it must be in the users power to get the
problematic media up and running without much hassle.
