Awesome.  OIN is a step in the right direction.

I think the lawyers at Red Hat have to come up with a solution for
those who want to use Fedora as their OS, and pay a small price if
that must be to have all the necessary codecs on their system.

It seems like the war is being won by the software developers but it's
the lawyers who are failing.  Linux needs better lawyers.
