Legal Nero AG, a company with one of the most fitting names ever (can you imagine a company called Hitler or Stalin 2000 years from now?), has filed an anti-trust lawsuit against the MPEG-LA. The German technology company claims the licensing body has abused its monopoly power, and that is has not honoured agreements made with the US Department of Justice. There's some juicy stuff in here.

The more gigantic and absurd the patent war becomes, the quicker a much-needed revision of the patent system to make it fit the needs of the software world is going to happen.

Moreover, these guys have got some excellent argumentation skills that would almost compensate their generally horrible desktop software (at least it was last time I checked). This is what I call great news !
