Tandberg Tries To Patent X264 Algorithm

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Nov 27, 2010.

  1. 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?
