Multimedia, AV "A lot of commercial software comes with H.264 encoders and decoders, and some computers arrive with this software preinstalled. This leads a lot of people to believe that they can legally view and create H.264 videos for whatever purpose they like. Unfortunately for them, it ain't so."

$10,000 per year from 10,000 digital TV stations (worldwide there would be far more than that) is $100,000 million per year right there. From just one market.

As the OP said ... greed. Pure greed.


Sorry, a correction is required: ... $100 million per year from 10,000 digital TV stations.

$100,000 million per year is 10 million digital TV stations.

That might be nearly all of them.
