MPEG-LA Under Anti-Trust Investigation

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Mar 5, 2011.

  1. This is odd: it’s OK to use patents as a weapon against competitors, but
    it’s not OK to _solicit_ the collection of such patents??

    I wonder how the DoJ is going to draw a line between one anticompetitive use
    of patents versus another.
