Internet & Networking Despite the recent interest in adopting HTML5's video tag, there is still one major problem: there is no mandated standard video codec for the video tag. The two main contestants are the proprietary and patended h264, and the open and free Theora. In a comment on an LWN.net article about this problematic situation, LWN reader Trelane posted an email exchange he had with MPEG-LA, which should further cement Theora as the obvious choice.

...because that is lawyer-speak, which does take some real effort for many of us to parse, for whom English is our native language. It's like vulgar British English v. US English. I can read, and wonder what was just said, then go back and read more carefully, logically working it out.

"(...) not concluded by End Users," is not a phrase we normally read, nor is the grammar common. On top of that, what it really does mean does not make much sense, at first read, given that the idea is rather absurd.
