"Google Releases New Version of VP8 Codec", seeing as though they're the only ones who can officially do anything with their "open" project...


The WebM project provides "reference" code, here is their license page:
http://www.webmproject.org/license/

Individual Contributor License Agreement ("Agreement"), v1.1
http://code.google.com/legal/individual-cla-v1.0.html

Software Grant and Corporate Contributor License Agreement ("Agreement"), v1.1
http://code.google.com/legal/corporate-cla-v1.0.html

Caveat: In order for outside contributions to the WebM project itself to be accepted into the WebM project codebase, Google must first assure themselves that the new code does not infringe any patents. Quite reasonably, Google wouldn't want some "helpful" outside contributer attempting any code sabotage, would they?

Other people/projects can of course do what they like within their own codebase, at their own risk, such as this project which includes WebM:
