When other linux distros provide all the media codecs installed for free, they dont ask for any pay, Y should Ubuntu ask for a pay for including those codecs by default.
Do other distroes pay the royalty fee for including the codecs in their distribution? (Just want to know the fact)
If they do pay, then y are they distributing it for free?
