+1 or PCIe
Just a suggestion: there can be a request from well known brands who are
making contributions to FFmpeg to donate for hiring a lawyer who has
proficiency on OSS subject for both US and EU laws. It will be for their
and community's benefit, as there will be an independent point of view. I
believe there can be donators from community too. Time to time, it is
noticable users as asking for non-free compile subject.
This approach can bring a proper action for similar cases and avoid in
further. The lawyer can be supportive on CoC subject either.
