Infringes copyrights on LGPL and GPL code, does things illegal under

The party just keeps on going. In addition to above mentioned LAME code
found here, it appears there's GPL code as well. I'm not a lawyer, but
this could be a DMCA/EUCD violation too? The code in question is VLC's
demux/mp4/drms.c -- the de-DRMS code which circumvents Apple's DRM. The
control flow is the same, the constants are equal, the two magic arrays
are equivalent as well. This includes the p_secret2 string which is
rot13'd Apply copyright string (used as data).
