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."

Long Story Short. Thom is LOUD, WRONG, and MISINFORMED AGAIN! If they why are they cutting a check? Fuck the size of it relative to profits, Google got called on their shit and proved as liars and frauds again. But Thom wants Google perks and access like "The Verge", so he'll suck at the teat and pray to the Brin and the Page as long and visibly as he can.
