This is not the right mailing list for this kind of
questions, you have to ask your lawyer (I don't think any
qualified people are posting on this list).
You can read the "opinion" (to quote you) of the FFmpeg
developers on http://ffmpeg.org/legal.html
Please find out what "freeware" means (FFmpeg is NOT
freeware to the best of my knowledge) and don't forget to
read the LGPL before distributing software based on FFmpeg.
