Downloading a movie, at least in Poland, is totally legal as long as you 
own a legal copy. Working DRM around is legal in such case as well.

If you want to remove a package that does something illegal, AFAIK Lame 
MP3 Encoder would have to be removed from the repo because of some 
patents infringements.

Kind regards,
