Thats not as easy as you think as id like to keep free sw whos authors
pretend they wrote ffmpeg on the list.

heres my current try:
Index: shame

 This is a list of projects or companies violating FFmpeg's license. The list
 is part of an effort to get them to comply with the licensing terms by shaming
 them in public.
+We have consciously chosen not to include <i>not for profit free software projects</i> as we
+belive that thouse who give their work to the world for free should not be shamed
+on such lists.
