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.”

    The people who develop WSL (mostly Microsoft employees) get easily irritated when asked how many people actually use this thing; but more interestingly, however, they reveal their disdain for GNU/Linux and support for Microsoft blackmail (for 'Linux patent tax')

  6. Europeans Still Need to Save the European Patent Office From Those Who Attack Its Patent Quality

    Patent quality is of utmost interest; without it, as we're seeing at the EPO and have already seen at the USPTO for a number of years, legal disputes will arise where neither side wins (only the lawyers win) and small, impoverished inventors or businesses will be forced to settle outside the courts over baseless allegations, often made by parasitic patent trolls (possessing low-quality patents they don't want scrutinised by courts)



  7. We Never Accepted and Will Never Accept Corporate Money

    Corporate money is a unique problem because of its magnitude and the fact that it's impersonal; shareholders can only ever accept its supposed justifications if they're receiving something in return (of proportional worth to the payment/transaction)
