Unfortunately, because Red Hat IS a USA-based company, they (and all us
Americans) cannot make a distro available that is directly connected in ANY
fashion to repositories containing patented technologies that do not have an
license explicitly stating that there will be no repercussions for such
aforementioned inclusion scenarios to be applied. This is why Fedora has
such a bad rep (I am not saying it is a bad distro, I use it for
everything!) with uninformed people (people making the choice of using Linux
for the first time). Though I think CodecBuddy NEEDS support for reading
through repositories to find codecs because there ARE Free codecs not in the
Fedora DVD by default and should be able to be detected and installed.
