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.

UK is still on the fence on it. We don’t officially recognise 'software patents', but we have had rulings in support of them, and against.

No judge has yet made the stand either side so precedence hasn’t Truely been set on the validity of the patent itself.
