This wiki is a place to collect information about the patent status of the MPEG standards. Since there is no requirement that contributors be lawyers, this is not legal advice. This page is an offshoot of the Kuro5hin article http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2008/7/18/232618/312 /Kuro5hin MPEG patent status paper Original research is fine, but claims should be backed by reasons for their correctness.
