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 or the alternate scan patents, then maybe
you can tell the big silicon vendors where they're all going wrong.
 You will have to know how MPEG-2 decoding is performed to argue this
