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.

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR STREAMING DATA WITH H264.

THERE.
IS.
AND YOU SAID IT YOURSELF:
Only after 100000 views and over 12 minutes long.


And you got the cost completely wrong, BY A FACTOR OF TEN, as galvanash has shown.
