 If there is a business need - business have no problem paying for
appropriate licenses if they can be purchased - whether for mp3 or other.

  Tho why most business would care about mp3 or divx is beyond me ..
those that do care have a solution already - Mr Main St or small 400
employee company cares about the tools they need (whether its accounting
software, medical management software, mathematica, or Office
Productivity tools etc) - and many are available and many are not free
- and that is just fine too.

  Most companies in my business (large) are huge users of linux already
and are quite happy purchasing software (and/or support) they need. They
do/did on windows too .. and for MS Office .. etc etc.

  Business' care about solutions - cost effective yes, but solutions. So
what is the problem you're trying to solve - how does linux and addons
(pay or otherwise) solve that better than alternatives.
