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.

Apple and MS are both patent holders in the H.264 patent pool. That means they get a cut of the royalties.

Which probably means that pay almost nothing for h264 when one weighs up royalties versus payments.
