The other thing is that I haven't read Fluendo's patent licence, and I would be surprised if it did allow distribution as free software - so that criticism might need checking.
If the patent grant doesn't apply to derivative works, then that's not good. That means buyers of Fluendo's product are ok, but when the execute their redistribution rights they are putting the recipient in a danger which they themselves have decided is unbearable.
Where to draw the line is clear
