^^^ Let's Compare Nations ^^^

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on March 10, 2007 12:54 AM
Let's examine which nation's laws make Mint legal and which don't. I'm no expert but, I happen to know for a fact that Mint, with its included and unlicensed codecs breaks the laws of the following nations:

United States
United Kingdom
European Union
Australia
South Africa
Japan

That's a rather large portion of the industrialized world. There are likely many more that I do not know about.

In which nations is it legal to disregard the EULA's and patents and copyrights of the codec developers?
