    We would need to build our own ffmpeg, stripped from patent-encumbred
    codecs, which would confuse our users even more. Otherwise we are
    going to have real trouble, for instance with Krita in the Windows
    Store.

    Q: Is it perfectly alright to incorporate the whole FFmpeg core into my own commercial product?
    
    A: You might have a problem here. There have been cases where companies
    have used FFmpeg in their products. These companies found out that once
    you start trying to make money from patented technologies, the owners
    of the patents will come after their licensing fees. Notably, MPEG LA
    is vigilant and diligent about collecting for MPEG-related technologies.
    
    So we really need to consider this again :-(
