[Slackbuilds-users] ffmpeg and "non-redistributable binary"

Some of the dependencies for _ffmpeg_ make it "non-redistributable binary".

I'd like to ask what does it mean?

Does it mean it's forbidden to redistribute the binary because of law 

Or does it mean the binary will contain instructions that cannot be 
executed on, for example, previous generations of the CPU?

Best regards,
