RE: Fedora Basic End User Rollout Support Operation



I am somewhat confused.  I thought that as an open sourced OS, it was a free
license, which included the applications in the repositories.  What am I
missing?

The problem isn't easy of use, its risking your clients getting sued for
practicing a patent without licensing it. And libdvdcss subjects you to
potential criminal liability. (And not just your clients, trafficing in
circumvention tools is a crime as well as using them in some juristictions.)

While it's likely a home user would be overlooked, if you start doing this
stuff for busniesses on a medium to large scale, you may draw some attention
to yourself.
