Tandberg Tries To Patent X264 Algorithm

Lawrence D'Oliveiro
Posts: n/a
Tandberg has filed a patent application for an improved method of doing
H.264 encoding. Only trouble is, their description exactly matches code in
the open-source x264 implementation. Tandberg of course claim they came up
with the idea independently. But given that independent invention isn’t a
defence for patent infringement, why should it be grounds for getting a
patent in the first place?
