Multimedia, AV A few days ago, Google and the MPEG-LA announced that they had come to an agreement under which Google received a license for techniques in VP8 that may infringe upon MPEG-LA patents (note the 'if any'). Only a few days later, we learn the real reason behind Google and the MPEG-LA striking a deal, thanks to The H Open, making it clear that the MPEG-LA has lost. Big time. Update: Chris Montgomery: "The wording suggests Google paid some money to grease this along, and the agreement wording is interesting [and instructive] but make no mistake: Google won. Full stop."

You link to Florian Mueller, who is paid by Microsoft and Oracle, who has been consistently proven wrong on just about everything he says.

You'll have to do better than that.

He's wrong on some occasions and right on others.
You link to Groklaw which is just as wrong (nope sorry they're worse), consistently leaning towards one direction, Google (they're the equivalent of Dan Lyons but their specialty is patents).

Regardless, I dare you to refute any of his points.
