Linux Mint provides an ISO without codec
(btw some good ideas about ISO, like an OEM ISO). It nicely named
"linuxmint-9-gnome-usa-japan-i386.iso" which just focus on 2 countries ;-)
What's just funny is that we looking for mirrors of Linux Mint, there :
http://linuxmint.com/mirrors.php several are located in USA, you can find a
company, yellowfiber located in Virginia (if i am not wrong, VA = Virginia)
with a legal contact in California, you can also find a mirror located in the
University of Tennessee, and both (and others in USA) provide all ISOs
(yellowfiber also provides a mirror for ArchLinux which contains libdvdcss)
So companies, universities in USA provide softwares that we are here
discussing if we can ship or not (and i don't want to insist, but Mageia.org
is not located in USA). Maybe they are more aware of laws than we are, or are
they taking too much risks ?
