There is no breach of copyright conditions that I can see. What is the hoopla all about?

on the linked site, it says: it is about to be pulled from the App Store due to a formal copyright complaint being issued against the software by one of the individual contributors to the VLC project.

 

I'm not really sure about open-source software and copyrights, but it would appear VLC has a problem with a third-party app being created with its software... Maybe?

From what I've seen it's actually because of the DRM applied by the App Store that makes it only able to be put on five devices or something, although the app is free, so I could just be missing something.
