first they came for wikileaks, and i said nothing because i was not a
wikileaks supporter.

then they came for the protesters of election fraud in russia, and i
said nothing because ffmpeg was not based in russia.

then they came for filesharing sites and the ability to break
dns at the root servers, and i said nothing, because the ffmpeg
project wasnt about filesharing.

then they came for software patent violators, but there was no one left
to say anything in ffmpegs defense.

history repeats itself.
