Multimedia, AV A few days ago, Google and the MPEG-LA announced that they had come to an agreement under which Google received a license for techniques in VP8 that may infringe upon MPEG-LA patents (note the 'if any'). Only a few days later, we learn the real reason behind Google and the MPEG-LA striking a deal, thanks to The H Open, making it clear that the MPEG-LA has lost. Big time. Update: Chris Montgomery: "The wording suggests Google paid some money to grease this along, and the agreement wording is interesting [and instructive] but make no mistake: Google won. Full stop."

That article is 100% nonsense. Don't sink to new lows linking to it. In fact, I suspect even you yourself feel a little dirty for linking to Daniel Eril Didupdidup.

I'll take the opinion of the founder of Xiph over that of Daniel Eril Didupdidup, the most insane Apple troll in human history.

Ad-hominem attacks already?

Anyway you are just as much of a troll as he maybe.

It pretty much irrelevant whether he is a troll or not. h264 is here to stay.

Several other news sources say this including ars which you frequently link.

Google haven't won anything. Two companies made a deal that is it.
