Mon Apr 25 19:16:37 CEST 2011
The WebM Project today announced an initiative to establish a
Community Cross-License (the CCL) with 17 founding members.
Google, Matroska and the Xiph.Org Foundation already make the
components of WebM openly available on royalty-free terms.
With the establishment of the CCL, CCL members will agree to license
patents they have that may be essential to WebM technologies to other
members of the CCL.
The founding members of the initiative are:
HiSilicon Technologies (for itself and on behalf of its parent, Huawei)
STMicroelectronics (for itself and its affiliate, ST-Ericsson)
