DENVER-Friday 21 August 2020 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MPEG LA, LLC issued the following statement today:

MPEG LA’s track record of independence, trust and transparency with which we have advanced patent pool licensing for nearly a quarter century speaks for itself. We do not retreat from our objective of striking a balance between patent holders and implementers to make video technologies widely available to the market on reasonable terms consistent with competition guidelines. That is who we are; no rebranding is necessary. As difficult as it may be, the goal of a single VVC patent pool license is a desirable one.

In that spirit, MPEG LA looks forward with c ... Read more »
