The package description isn't very specific, what it means is that 
gst-libav contains codecs for patented formats, like the infamous MPX, 
AAC and H.26X by MPEG-LA, but the codecs themselves as implemented by 
gstreamer or ffpmeg or libav are free software.

See http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gst-libav/tree/
