Okay, let me rephrase that...

(from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ForbiddenItems#Moonlight)


There are serious concerns about Moonlight, due to Microsoft and
Novell's public statements around its inclusion in their "covenant". In
addition to that Groklaw has posted a FAQ from Software Freedom Law
Center (SFLC) on the issues with this patent "covenant". Accordingly,
this technology (with, or without codecs), is considered too risky, and
is not acceptable for inclusion in Fedora.

That's the official line, my wording is more or less a paraphrasing of
the above.
