    I am working on an academic project about the DVD manufacturing
    industry in China
    and find myself really unclear about the DVD Forum and who owns and
    does what in the video disc world.

    I read that manufacturers must pay patent royalties to the DVD Forum,
    but then there's mention of the DVD 6C Group and the 3C Group
    (comprising Sony, Pioneer, Philips), Thomson and the MPEG Lab. Do all
    these parties belong to the "DVD Forum"
    and must royalties be negotiated with each group?

    Is there some resource somewhere that can explain this clearly and
    simply?
