The enterprise cap on H.264 is $5 million a year.

The H.264 licensors include Cisco, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Hitachi, JVC, Mitshubishi, NTT, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Sony and Toshiba.

There are 837 H.264 licensees.

H.264 is a broadcast standard. It is a cable, broadcast and satellite distribution standard. An industrial video standard. It is a home video standard. [Blu-Ray, HDTV] A theatrical production standard.

If you are producing hardware or software or content for any of these markets, you will be licensing H.264 and WebM is a wash.
