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


  1. Some Patent Attorneys Dislike Techrights Not Because It's Wrong But Because Software Patents Are Wrong (and Sometimes Illegal)

    Odd rants which misuse common law and ignore alleged Fair Use (and misinterpretation of copyright law, for censorship purposes) would have people believe that we're wrong; but it's more likely that the person in question is jealous, insecure, or offended by our stance on patent scope, which is very much rooted in the law itself (and the views widely held by software developers globally)

    "This strategy is not far from when Microsoft talked about "de-commoditizing protocols" in the late 90s, as part of their plans to control, dominate, and end Open Source and Free software."



  8. EPO Cannot Handle Patent Justice With a Backlog of About 10,000 Cases at the Boards of Appeal

    The EPO's long war on judges and on the law has proven to be costly; it's difficult to pretend that the EPO functions like a first-world legal framework

    Don't let Microsoft get away with its bogus narration; GNU/Linux is primarily under attack from Microsoft, whereas Software Freedom in general is under attack from many directions



  11. The Free Software Foundation (FSF) Has the Full Support of Techrights

    Our support for the FSF is strong enough that we want to occasionally suggest improvements; there are growing frictions designed to isolate the FSF and cause self-restraint/censorship

    The European Patent Office’s ongoing practice of destroying critics/whistleblowers and crushing unions, judges, examiners etc. — as well as threats and bribery of the media — ultimately mean a perpetual state of lawlessness that, if it prevails, will let patent trolls raid the European economy and stall innovation

  21. Guarding and Rescuing the FSF Titanic: Free as in Speech

    "While a new breed of so-called anarchists campaign against expression that even the state allows, people are also foolishly overplaying the relevance of the state to free speech issues -- as if it's not a freedom issue when a project is increasingly thought-policed, because the thought-policing isn't on a state level."

  28. GitHub is a Dagger Inside Free/Open Source Software (FOSS); This is Why Microsoft Bought It

    A year later it seems pretty evident that Microsoft doesn’t like FOSS but is merely trying to control it, e.g. by buying millions of FOSS projects/repositories at the platform level (the above is what the Linux Foundation‘s Jim Zemlin said to Microsoft at their event while antitrust regulators were still assessing the proposed takeover)



  29. Microsoft Grows Within and Eats You From the Inside

    Microsoft entryism and other subversive tactics continue to threaten and sometimes successfully undermine the competition; Microsoft is nowadays doing that to core projects in the Free/Open Source software world
