HD software patents


Good and bad news from the world of patents that could have implications for Pastxting:

Sony’s video metadata could be patentable in part. The good news – this software patent has been refused. The bad news – Sony is just going to rewrite the application and try again. Steve: Have you run in to this at all with your new camera?

Jury rules that H.264 is not patentable. The good news as reported by Dr Kool, PhD: “This ruling clears the way for H.264 to become a widely adopted open standard.” Lots of good comments in the discussion.
