Dear Sir,

It may be a newbie question, sorry for ignorance. If a commercial company use FFmpeg with libx264 to provide free online radio to user, is it legal?

In http://www.ffmpeg.org/legal.html , it state that "18 Make sure your program is not using any GPL libraries (notably libx264)."

Would someone please tell me the reason of this? And in which cases i could use FFmpeg with libx264 as commercial company.

This product will be free to user but may earn money through advertisement, is it possible to use those software?
