For example, you can't have a package that just runs wget to download an
mp3 implementation without a patent license, for the same reasons that
the mp3 implementation itself is not permissible for Copr.
I would personally be very supportive of FESCo adopting the restriction
on prohibiting Copr packages which are only useful with external
non-free or legally restricted items, but that's a FESCo issue, not a
Fedora Legal one.
Thanks for your clarification!
