The problem here is that a famous german news site was condemned just
because they linked in a news story to the website of a similar product
as libdvdcss (AFAIR). So the best thing would be to not provide
libdvdcss in RPMFusion.
It's not the best thing. It's merely a reasonable thing to do.
I'm going to remove libdvdcss code from mplayer tarball in a little
while to ensure that our position is not compromised.
On a more positive note, libdvdcss is legal (IMHO, IANAL) in Poland and
I can arrange for some hosting at a major internet hub if need be.
