 I've been recently using FFmpeg for a personal project and I built FFmpeg
 without --enable-nonfree and --without --enable-gpl, thinking that the
 resulting libraries could be freely used. But I just found out I was

 So the point is.. to me the --enable-nonfree option is ambiguous and I
 believe that something more explicit should used. From what I understood,
 this option only enables the use of copyrighted code, and therefore isn't

 Thus I would suggest something like --enable-nonredistributable rather
 than the current name.
