Thanks for the mail. We are in the process of finishing up a modified
version of VLC player with  custom authentification module/media file
protection etc. Infact the version put up in the server was only meant to
show some of our partners the video quality with the final s/w version.

The page will be removed from the site asap, till our own versions are ready
for launch.

We have recently noticed that the COW2 Technology Cinema Setup program
include binaries from the VideoLAN Project's VLC media player 0.7.2 version.
However, your End-User License Agreement is in violation of VLC's GPL
licensing terms. Moreover, you do not seem to comply with the requirements
for redistribution of GPL-licensed software.

We thus ask you to cease distribution of these files or modify the file as
to comply with the GPL.
