Google This. This is what we need. These are the kind of steps from which we all benefit. Google has just announced the Open Patent Non-Assertion Pledge: the company promises not to sue any users, distributors, or developers of open source products based on the patents it owns (unless first attacked).

So you did not read it either?

Its ONLY about GOOGLE OWN IMPLEMENTATION of VP8. BUT everybody using it is covered.

So VP8 is safe choice for The Web.

H.264 is not so.

(When considering just patents from MPEG-LA H.264 patent pool)
