Here is primarily a commercial business model for H.264 in competition with a series of free, non-commercial implementations such as Web-M and Ogg Theora. With enough lobbying in the standardization bodies reached the MPEG-LA, the cementing of their product and makes this synonymous use of uncertainty to the public in regard to possible patent infringement in the free implementations.
Conclusion: We will sell the new bit of freedom in the H.264 licensing as a huge gift and the only alternative, but occur over the entire H.264-chain further (hidden) costs. Unlike the competing implementations of the house are made for any conceivable application fee. In short, we are of the MPEG-LA sold for stupid.
