MPEG LA extends H.264 royality-free license

Sir Homer (549339) writes | more than 4 years ago

Patents 1

Sir Homer (549339) writes "The MPEG LA has extended their royalty-free license for "Internet Video that is free to end users" till the end of 2016. This means webmasters who are registered MPEG LA licensees will not have to pay a royalty to stream H.264 video for the next six years. However the last patent in the H.264 portfolio expires in 2028, and the MPEG LA has not released what fees, if any, it will charge webmasters after this "free trial" period is over."
