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.

I was more talking about the behaviour where he starts arguing and once he realises he is wrong is never replies.

I don't have problems with opinion pieces and sometimes I get useful links from this site. But I really get a bit bored of the big conspiracy articles, because the world is really too complicated and companies themselves for this to occur.
