Sigh. You seem to have a talent for picking subjects for argument that you 
know nothing about. Go study the licensing scheme and patent portfolio for 
MPEG-2 and tell me how you can get around the motion compensation and 
prediction patents for example[1] or the alternate scan patents, then maybe 
you can tell the big silicon vendors where they're all going wrong.
