Multimedia, AV And the fight continues. Only a few months after the desperate move by the MPEG-LA to get anyone - anyone - to submit patents to a possible WebM patent pool, Google and the WebM community have struck back. A whole slew of major companies have formed the WebM Community Cross-License initiative, basically a sort-of Open Invention Network for WebM.

Royalty free MPEG-LA

So basically they're setting up a royalty free version of MPEG-LA. Makes me wonder why they didn't do this from the start.

Now we wait for both Apple and Microsoft join the consortium. (Because they don't have any reason not to, right?)
