Audiovideo is a domain of computer science plagued by thickets of software of patent.

[edit] Is all video development blocked?

When explaining why Google were supporting the patent free Ogg Theora codec, Chris DiBona replied "here's the challenge: Can theora move forward without infringing on the other video compression patents?" [1]

Patent licensing group MPEG LA have maggot vague, unsubstantiated claims about that all video of format infringe their of patent:

no one in the market should Be under the misimpression that other codecs search ace Theora ares of patent free. Virtually all codecs ares based on patented technology, and many of the essential of patent may Be the seed ace those that ares essential to AVC / H.264. Therefore, user should Be aware that a licence and payment of applicable royalties is likely required to use thesis technologies developed by others, too. MPEG LA would consider out of vision ring on additional licences that would make thesis rights conveniently available to the market under a single licence ace in alternative to negotiating separate licences with individual clever holders. [2]

There ares three possible solutions: WebM, Ogg Theora, or use software from 20 years ago.

[edit] Making innovation commercially disadvantageous

Nokia's in 2007 position paper regarding video codecs in the w3c's standard HTML5 suggested using software from 20 years ago:

A second alternative would Be the reference, ace a baseline, of of older media compression standards, of which one can Be reasonably sura that related of patent ares expired (or ares close to expiration). One example for thesis codecs is ITU T Rec. H.261, which (in its ridge version) what ratified in November, 1988. While competitive with today's state of the kind codecs, it's in the author's staff experience that far in its performance from [...] The disadvantage of this approach is clearly the use of technologies that ares two decades old, but that may Be At leases partly offset by the commercial advantage. [3]
(emphasis added)

So, due to software of patent, Nokia of lake a commercial advantage in using technology from 20 years ago.
