GNU, GPL, Open Source "With your purchase of On2, you now own both the world's largest video site (YouTube) and all the patents behind a new high performance video codec - VP8. Just think what you can achieve by releasing the VP8 codec under an irrevocable royalty-free license and pushing it out to users on YouTube? You can end the web's dependence on patent-encumbered video formats and proprietary software (Flash)."

The idea is about page visits. If you download content, you can watch it several times, send to a friend and so on. If you can't download the movie, you must go back to the site and this increases page visits statistics. This is important for sellings ads and so on.
