Multimedia, AV And the fight continues. Only a few months after the desperate move by the MPEG-LA to get anyone - anyone - to submit patents to a possible WebM patent pool, Google and the WebM community have struck back. A whole slew of major companies have formed the WebM Community Cross-License initiative, basically a sort-of Open Invention Network for WebM.

You know what trolls do: they stay under bridges and fall over anyone trying to cross them. They do that and pretty much nothing else. They have no actual interest in bridges other than a)that people eventually need to cross over them and b)they can hide below.

I think "patent troll" is not a gratuitous derogatory term but a rather straightforward analogy.
