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.

So actually you admit you've got nothing but thin air and "is claimed" assertions, yet it's enough for you to go and tell people they should use Dirac now instead of Theora (or whatever other codec for what I care)?

"Was supposed", "most likely", "is claimed", "I assumed", and deciding for others the reasons they're backing one codec or another...

... yet you still feel entitled to post such vapour and tell people what they should do?
