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.

Your information is out of date; a number of European countries have granted software patents, and at CeBIT in Germany, products have been seized that allegedly infringe on patents covering MP3, MP4, and digital video, despite the fact that those functions were implemented in software.

I wonder what was the result of that scuffle? Because one judge ruled in favour, another against and one more in favour. But I couldn't find what was the result of it...
