I think it is important to keep these comments in context. The remark Glynn quoted referred to the claim that Rui should install a non-free program to convert the files rather than being an armchair general. That quote therefore had nothing to do with the `right' to not choose to view the footage, since viewing it wasn't the issue. Andreas PS: As far as I am concerned this whole discussion is only (once again) the distinction between the `open source movement' and the `free software' movement.
