where does it break anything?
it does not selling ffmpeg, it sells a gui

you should try to understand what you read

no line here says that any ffmpeg-copyright is the problem the problem ist that some inside
ffmpeg useses algoritms which where somebody like MPEG LA holds patents and as long ffmpeg
is downloaded as source there is no problem - if you include FFMPEG AS BINARY even
with totally untouched source you can have a problem with MPEG LA no ffmpeg-license

again: you are speaking bullshit as long we are speak about a GUI
