Some codecs aren't free and require licensing, royalties, etc. Others will decrypt protected media or get around regional locks. Stuff like that which tends to get copyright lawyers and people who overuse the word 'draconian' excited. Don't think anyone's ever had their door kicked down over them though. Distributors maybe.

you don't go to jail for them.... it just means someone took the codecs and repackaged them without paying royalties to use them

Then why is my execution still planned for tomorrow?

They know what you did last summer with older codecs.

Anyone else thinks that they really need an updater?

Doubt they can do that because it's not just one codec, they add/remove codecs and change settings all the time. Maybe in the future if LAV (a next-gen ffdshow replacement) will become the only codec required it would be feasible.
