Hello, Nick:

I am not an FFmpeg insider, so I have no special expertise. However, the 
FFmpeg project has published a page, /
FFmpeg License and Legal Considerations/ <http://ffmpeg.org/legal.html>. 
When people have asked licence questions in the past, they have been 
directed to this page.

I observe that sometime people ask a question which boils down to, will 
the FFmpeg-user mailing list assure me that my intended use has no legal 
risk?  My impression is that neither this email list nor the FFmpeg 
project attempts to answer such questions. They way to get an answer to 
that kind of question is to hire a lawyer who knows your situation and 
your jurisdiction, and let them advise you.

I hope this is helpful,
