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.

Many individuals, who invested the time and money into the development of a unique patent might not have the money to fight the protracted legal case alone.

But you would expect them to at least approach the offender, let them know about their infraction and (maybe) offer a license agreement.
