Resumen: Microsoft como de costumbre vuelve a las andadas en Vista 7, que pone trampas RAND (“Razonable y No-Discriminatorias” licencias) dentro de Mozilla Firefox.

MICROSOFT HA estado impulsando en forma agresiva la contaminación de la Web con las patentes MPEG[http://techrights.org/2010/03/18/microsoft-threatens-with-fud-mpeg4/] (en manos de un troll de patentes, el Sr. Horn), mientras que Mozilla siempre las rechazó [1[http://techrights.org/2010/08/26/mpeg-la-trick/], 2[http://techrights.org/2010/08/28/mozilla-vs-mpegla-trolls/], 3[http://techrights.org/2010/06/02/calmly-supporting-vp8/]]. Firefox y Mozilla no se mezclan con MPEG-LA, por lo que Ogg y WebM son defendidos por sus ejecutivos y desarrolladores. Para un contexto más y de fondo con respecto a MPEG-LA ver:

* Necesidades de Canonical para indicar a los usuarios de Ubuntu cuánto pagó MPEG-LA por la “protección” de Patentes[http://techrights.org/2010/05/07/canonical-disclosure-h264-video/]
* Microsoft y MPEG-LA llamados “trolls de patentes”, denuncia antimonopolio presentada[http://techrights.org/2010/05/26/mpeg-cartel-and-microsoft-backlash/]
* Troll de Patentes (MPEG-LA) puede ser el dueño de su propio personal y Videos Familiares[http://techrights.org/2010/05/26/patent-trolls-exploit-cams/]
* Alexandre Oliva explica por qué el patente Troll Larry Horn (Cartel MPEG) es un farol[http://techrights.org/2010/05/27/mpeg-cartel-bluff/]
* “Estamos en la era del vídeo digital, y esto es un lío,”-Steve Jobs, MPEG-LA Proponete/Supporter/ cabildero[http://techrights.org/2010/05/28/mpeg-cartel-gives-jobs/]
* Simon Phipps: “MPEG-LA es un PARASITO Usando los Institutos de Normalización como su Huésped, lo quieran o no.” (Y una perorata sobre Banshee / Mono)[http://techrights.org/2010/06/07/mpeg-la-and-dot-net-trap/]
* Resumen de Patentes: Deformación patentes en la Unión Europea, MPEG-LA, OIN, Nueva Zelanda, y los trolls de patentes[http://techrights.org/2010/06/25/ffii-et-al-re-eu-and-nz/]

Según CNET[http://news.cnet.com/8301-30685_3-20025721-264.html], Microsoft ahora utiliza Vista 7 de empujar las trampas de MPEG-LA patente dentro de Firefox, que ni siquiera es propio software de Microsoft (esta no sería la primera vez[http://techrights.org/2009/05/31/microsoft-changes-firefox-software/] que Microsoft inyecta gotas de su propio interés en el software que no es propia, a pesar de la el usuario siempre y cuando no sea el consentimiento). Aquí está la discusión en Slashdot[http://news.slashdot.org/story/10/12/16/223237/Microsoft-Is-Releasing-an-H264-Plugin-For-Firefox] con respecto a este comportamiento aceptable de Microsoft y algunos de los artículo de CNET:

“Mozilla es abierto en su disgusto por la patente de tecnología de vídeo gravado llamada H.264, pero Microsoft, un ventilador H.264, proporciona un plug-in que permitirá a los usuarios de Windows 7 es el uso de todos modos.”

[...]

“Mozilla está trabajando para tratar de establecer WebM como un códec necesario para HTML5, una especificación estandarizada por el World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).”

Como Glyn Moody dijo, Microsoft está “desesperado por arrimar # swpats [las patentes de software] en las fauces de la bestia de los pobres” (que vergüenza Microsoft parece ser un consenso).

La estrategia de “contaminación” de patentes de Microsoft es similar a la estafa elegida por Monsanto, que utiliza las patentes para OBLIGAR a los agricultores a pagar un impuesto (no importa si son clientes de la empresa Monsanto, que puede ser “accidentales” clientes también debido a los litigios) . Como hemos explicado muchas veces antes, la Fundación Gates[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Gates_Foundation_Critique] y Monsanto piensan igual y están muy cerca uno del otro, como era de esperar. Hay un nuevo artículo en francés de él[http://newsoftomorrow.org/spip.php?article9414] y Moody comenta acerca de él al escribir “los monopolio-amantes se encuentran”.

“Los gustos de MPEG-LA sería sólo una parte de dicha estrategia, así que es importante suprimir H.264 y tal vez presentar una queja formal contra Microsoft por empujar las patentes MPEG-LA en su rival, Firefox (sin permiso).” Mientras tanto , el eterno vigilante Benjamin Henrion (presidente de la FFII-Fundación para una Infraestructura de Información “Libre”) escribió para decirnos que “la Comisión Europea dice que el Software Libre puede pagar regalías” sobre la base de este documento FEI [http://ec.europa.eu/isa/strategy/doc/110113__iop_communication_annex_eif.pdf][PDF]. Cita de él: “Los derechos de propiedad intelectual relacionados con el pliego de condiciones se licencia en términos “RAZONABLES y NO DISCRIMINATORIAS” o sobre una base sin derechos de autor de una manera que permita su aplicación tanto en el software de código abierto y propietario.”

No hay que olvidar que es la promoción de RAND en Europa (véase nuestra categoría RAND[http://techrights.org/category/rand/]), aunque basada en mentiras acerca de Free/Software libre. Eso serían los lobbyists bien remunerados de Microsoft. Los gustos de MPEG-LA sería sólo una parte de dicha estrategia, así que es importante suprimir H.264 y tal vez presentar una queja formal contra Microsoft por empujar las patentes MPEG-LA en su rival, Firefox (sin permiso). Como nuestro lector “twitter”, dijo hace dos horas, el lema de Microsoft es, “¿Lo nuestro es nuestro y lo que es tuyo es nuestro.”

What Else is New

    Links for the day



  2. [Humour] The 'Orange One' Does Not Respect Judges Either

    More than two years after taking over the European Patent Office (EPO) António Campinos has done absolutely nothing to restore judicial independence of the Boards of Appeal of the EPO



  3. The Systemd Song

    Speak out about IBM's strategy before we're all using GNU/Linux distros 'barcoded' with systemd



  4. Monopoly (or Vendor Lock-in) is Not Modularity

    IBM cannot totally control the kernel, Linux; IBM's control over GNU/Linux may be worth even more than what it paid for Red Hat as that's the key to overpriced support contracts and the general direction of development (important trends such as file systems and various low-level stacks)



  5. The Internet Archive Doesn't Forget, Whereas the Internet and the Web Forget Very Fast

    World Wide Web history is grossly undervalued and preservation of such history (e.g. by the Wayback Machine) is taken for granted by far too many people; the robber barons of today benefit the most from erosion of collective memory as they get to rewrite the past to suit their present and future interests



  6. Environmentalism and Free Software Can be Viewed as Closely Connected and Help One Another

    Modest lifestyles are an overlapping pattern in the Free software community and green activists; there's room for alliances and collaboration, bettering society by reducing consumption and discouraging voyeurism



  7. Free (as in Freedom) Software + Social Control Media ≠ Free Speech

    Speaking through middlemen and private platforms is bad enough (that gives others unjust power over speech); to claim that because the underlying platform is free/libre software it therefore becomes a non-issue is also dishonest



  8. António Campinos: President or Quasi-Autocratic Corporate Puppet?

    The culture of oppression — and censorship of evidence of oppression — is what today’s EPO is all about; the EPO learned how to better avoid (or block) negative publicity without actually changing its ways; and due to unprecedented speech restrictions you won’t hear that from SUEPO



  9. The Media Continues to Ignore Corruption of António Campinos

    António Campinos has Croatian scandals on his lap; the obedient media, however, refuses to even talk about it (or uses COVID as an excuse to write nothing on the subject, as some journalists have told us)



  10. A Call for Patent Sanity

    The public's call for reform is motivated by improved understanding of today's debased patent system and how out-of-order (detached from its original mission statement) it has gotten; patent maximalism, if it does not completely unravel this whole system, severely discredits it



  11. Declassified US Army Field Manuals Explain Microsoft's Public Relations Strategy (Similar to Selling Imperialism to the Occupied)

    The misuse of public broadcast to brainwash the public is well understood and thoroughly exploited by both Microsoft and the Gates Foundation (which sells this ridiculous lie that the world’s richest people speak for and fight for the poorest, i.e. those impoverished by endless greed)

  14. Education Without Free Software is Training or Indoctrination

    Kids need to decide for themselves what they want to do and what they wish to use when they grow up; schools need to provide general tools and the mental capacity to make good decisions (rather than make these decisions for the kids, sometimes at the behest of foreign monopolists)



  15. Links 10/7/2020: Wayland-Info, diffoscope 151 and Tor 0.4.4.2-alpha

  16. European FRAND (Related to SEP) Proponent and Famed Programmer Comes to Realise That It's Actually a “Scam”

    Even people who have long promoted the practice of mandatory "licensing" (in effect patent tax one is unable to work around) are apparently changing their minds and their tune



  17. Not Even a Single Corporate Journalist Has Written Anything About These Very Important Bits of News

    Constant propaganda from patent maximalists has long infested the media, which is sometimes controlled and even bribed to set the tone and the agenda; important developments are being tucked away and require very deep digging for ordinary citizens to find

  19. Racism in Technology (and Who Typically Lectures Us About the Subject)

    Racism is a real problem; some approaches to tackling racism, however, can also be problematic and those who take the lead 'on behalf' of victims tend to be opportunistic and privileged few (piggybacking others' grievances to further advance their financial agenda)

  21. [Humour] COVID-19 is Very, Very Afraid of Human Beings Making More Monopolies Instead of Fighting Together

    The European Patent Office (EPO) to the rescue! Fighting a dangerous pandemic one profitable monopoly at a time!



  22. The News is Never 'Slow', It's Just Journalism That's Slowing Down (and Investigative Journalism Coming Under Attack)

    A mix of censorship and subtle mind control contribute to misinformed societies that shape their perception or misunderstanding of the world based on false measures of authority (where money can determine what is true and what is untrue); many topics remain completely untouched, leading to apathy in a vacuum; it's very much applicable to international organisations, which are presumed benign by virtue of being multi-national or supranational



  23. Social Control Media is About Social Control and If It Doesn't Ban You It'll Shut Down Everyone's Account (One Day)

    It’s time to leave the ‘Internet rot’ which is social control media well behind us; blogging and RSS/XML may seem like a thing of the past, but they may as well become the future (again; if we make the correct and informed choices)



  24. Microsoft's Fingers in Every Pie: The Cult Mentality That Society Needs to Become Wary of

    Microsoft and its co-founder (pretending to do his for-profit 'charity' via the Gates Foundation) are trying to control the world; in the process they've moved to control even their most potent competitor, according to Gates himself, which is GNU/Linux

  28. Yes, Master

    When the Linux Foundation tells us to tone down our language we ought to remember what kind of hypocritical stance these people have (note: the above have nothing to do with slavery, either)



  29. Fraunhofer is Again Evergreening Software Patents to Maintain Its Codecs Cartel, Forcing Everyone to Pay to View/Stream Multimedia Files

    The roller-coaster of software patents on multimedia isn't stopping; we know the culprits who can be named for perpetuating this injustice



  30. [Humour/Meme] Focusing on the Bombings and Who's Included in the Bombings

    Supremacist agenda disguised as "tolerant and inclusive" is still objectionable supremacist agenda
