Any updates to the situation? The date has since passed, and even
MPEG-LA has acknowledged MPEG-2's new patent-free situation.
It'd be nice to have the ability to create DVDs within Fedora itself.
I am confident Fedora Legal will announce anything on this topic as
soon as they possibly can. Asking about it 6 days after that patent
expired is both unrealistic and unhelpful. Legal matters are very
complicated and take time.
