Hi there,

I was just checking whether the team is aware that someone is  
corrupting the GPL and selling this software for profit of $10, $15  

According to copyright law, if a software uses another backend  
software, and it makes up the main part of the software in order to  
function, that software cannot be incorporated without prior consent  
to the originators of the backend license agreement.

They have been doing that for quite sometime, some as far as almost 10  
years. And I don't understand why nothing happened over these years.  
Plus what is the Hall of Shame for on the ffmpeg website?

Yours Jack
