Legal Late last week, Nokia dropped what many consider to be a bomb on the WebM project: a list of patents that VP8 supposedly infringes in the form of an IETF IPR declaration. The list has made the rounds around the web, often reported as proof that VP8 infringes upon Nokia's patents. All this stuff rang a bell. Haven't we been here before? Yup, we have, with another open source codec called Opus. Qualcomm and Huawei made the same claims as Nokia did, but they turned out to be complete bogus. As it turns out, this is standard practice in the dirty business of the patent licensing industry.

Nokia's patents

Contrary to the other companies named in your article, Nokia win's most of it's patent battles, i.e. they know when they're right.

I'm not gonna bother with your wall of text, big rant/propaganda as usual and even when you get refuted on the subject, you refuse to answer.

Also I don't see how Nokia's statement is relevant to the fact that Mueller is an advisor to Oracle/MS (something he publicly discloses).
