Multimedia, AV We've got news from the MPEG-LA, regarding any possible H264 license changes they might institute at the end of this year. More specifically, they've put out a press release stating that they will not change one specific aspect of the license that governs the AVC Patent Portfolio (to which h264 belongs): MPEG-LA will not collect royalties for internet video that is free to end users. The press release is highly confusing, so let's de-construct what's going on here.

Not very good at reading comprehension are you?

Care to elaborate?

Yes, there's an "if" in your sentence, but adding "if" as an excuse to spread misinformation doesn't absolve you to back up your arguments with some facts. Else I doubt you'd have posted them as an argument against the use of Theora.

Especially when you back it up with the "which it seem to have" and use it as an argument against "stupid Theora". And saying that people who chose to backup Theora at the moment do so "just because people know about the Ogg brand" in opposition to Dirac means that either you can come up with the facts to back your claims, or you're just full of it and just repeating any stuff you've read on the net without having grasped the meaning of it.

Now instead of doging the point, could you please backup your claim?
