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.”

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

  4. Gemini Lets You Control the Presentation Layer to Suit Your Own Needs

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects



  5. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  17. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)
