Only 'non-commercial web video' is free. What, exactly, 'non-commercial' means is a mystery to everyone - which is exactly what the MPG-LA wants.


And not to forget that even if "non-commercial" would be clearly defined, this still does only cover "web" distribution, not distributing on DVDs or on non-commercial TV (e.g. university campus TV).

And not to forget (do we see a pattern here) it only covers distribution, not creation or consumption.

But maybe those non-commercial web videos appear out of thin air and are purely consumed on bitstream level.
