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.

I'm confused... Are you talking about ffmpeg (great multimedia transcoding software) or about the MPEG-LA (large organization whose main role is to accumulate patent from a range of business actors, flagship product of the organization itself being lawsuits) ?
