For source distribution:  you can distribute the source code for the
application itself, but must point users to our site for the RealSystem
SDK headers that are necessary, as well as the RealOne Player for Linux
(which has the client core that you'd be calling)

For binary distribution:  unsure.  I think you can distribute binaries of
your application so long as you point users to our site for the RealOne
Player for Linux to get the libraries necessary for RealSystem content.
I'll need to double check this.
