The Powerpack edition has Cedega, LinDVD (legal DVD player) and Fluendo media codecs (legal audio/video codecs).

Is it legal to buy Powerpack and transfer the RPM files for Cedega, LinDVD, and Fluendo to a distribution of choice, so long as the files aren't distributed?

I dislike Mandriva because it's generally too buggy for me: my mouse didn't even work in 2007 final. However, I may consider it for the ability to transfer it's goodies onto a different distribution--Fedora in my case.
