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."

I have never heard that argument before. Everyone that deals with it in a technical sense *knows* it ain't free.


So are you saying that those who use Final Cut Pro and Premiere for commercial purposes all have separate licenses with the MPEG-LA? for using MPEG2-4 and H264 commercially? Really?
