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.

Member since:

Saying someone is wrong is not an attack; and I didn't tell you to shut up, I said that you should stop discussing until you can base it on data, because it's not a useful discussion without data.

I accepted the contrary evidence supplied by Radio, contrary data can exist at the same time, because if you read the details of the IETF data, it's for WebRTC, and uses the baseline profile. This is a legitimate use-case, I said that already. Where do you find bias?
