I don't like the direction this is heading. I do not see any gain to 
FFmpeg or the FOSS community in general to chase people that are

a) not making any profit from FFmpeg
b) following (L)GPL to the spirit (but not to the letter)

It is _not_ the same thing as the corporations that rip us off.

If I put a binary of FFmpeg in my homepage so people can try my patches 
(and distribute my patches alongside with it), will you sue me? What 
would FFmpeg gain from doing it?
