(ODF | PDF | English/original)

Resumen: Los tres principales impulsores de MPEG-LA se acercarse cada vez más hoy cuando hay preparaciones aparentemente para hacer multimedia en la World Wide Web no-libre.

TECHRIGHTS ha estado investigando el Nokia reporte todo el dia de hoy y hay un post detallado en desarrollo (aún con objeto de ampliarlo y de la precisión creciente). A parte de todo el hoi polloi nosotros tenemos un importante tema a discutir que impliqua no sólo Microsoft y Nokia. Apple tambíen desempeña un considerable papel en él. Tiene que ver con MPEG-LA, el troll de patentes que está intentando gravar/hacer que todo el mundo PAGUE, por todo el video en la WWW y fuera de ella. La “propiedad intelectual es el software siguiente,” Nathan Myhrvold ha dicho una vez. Él es Microsoft Troll de patentes[http://techrights.org/2008/09/18/patent-troll-by-proxy/] y su idea del software es claramente incompatible con el software libre abierto (Free/Open Source Software). Éste es exactamente porqué las compañías como Microsoft han estado preparando las firmas de patentes y destruyendo las verdaderas firmas de tecnología (o asumiendo el control) desde hace mucho tiempo. Básicamente, si el software es estorbado siempre por patentes, entonces él nunca puede ser distribuido libremente. Esto hace de las nuevas leyes un vector potencial de ataque por el cual derrotar la libre competencia baratamente. Tristemente, Nokia también es parte de este cártel, sucedió al defender a la nefasta MPEG-LA. La persona que hizo esto a nombre de Nokia también había trabajado para Microsoft (la manzana no cae lejos del árbol). En nuestro poste sobre Nokia nos ampliaremos en ésto un poco. Hay rumores que Elop de Nokia pueda dar patentes a Microsoft para ataca a Androide con ellas a su debido tiempo. Es que todo lo que tiene Microsoft ahora es Windows – el portador común crucial – esta perdiendo absolutamente rápido.

“Es que todo lo que tiene Microsoft ahora es Windows – el portador común crucial – esta perdiendo absolutamente rápido.”Según Jamie Love, como previsto[http://techrights.org/2011/02/05/gates-fostering-monopolies/], “Gary Locke, secretario de comercio de los E.E.U.U. (y cabildero anteriormente de Microsoft), viaja a la India para promover una protección más alta del IPR”; también vea esta página anterior de Jamie[http://keionline.org/node/968], como Locke está también cerca de la fundación Gates[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Gates_Foundation_Critique] con todos sus monopolios y codicia de patentes/cabildeao. Las fundaciones tales como las de Bill Gates son entendidas bien por Jamie, que hace un buen trabajo siguiedo los cabildeos de Microsoft y la compra de Gates de los medios de comunicación[http://techrights.org/2010/11/28/bill-melinda-evangelization/] (para torcer la cobertura sobre su fundación).

Como lo prometido al principio, aquí es cómo Apple, Nokia, y Microsoft se conectan es absolutamente claro. Éstos son los IMPULSORES más grandes para la MPEG-LA (basado en sus acciones) y Slashdot – entre otras fuentes – informa que MPEG-LA se prepara para la extorsión/el pleito (dos caras de la misma moneda) contra codificadores-decodificador libres de multimedias[http://yro.slashdot.org/story/11/02/11/1536257/MPEG-LA-Attempts-To-Start-VP8-Patent-Pool]

La especulación se confirma a partir del año pasado, cuando un lector anónimo filtra a las noticias que el LA del MPEG ha fijado una solicitud de información sobre el establecimiento de una piscina de patentes para el codificador-decodificador del vídeo VP8.

Aquí está la fuente original[http://www.mpegla.com/main/pid/vp8/default.aspx]:

La MPEG LA LLC, líder de mundo en licencias de todo en uno alternativas patentes, anuncia una llamada para las patentes esenciales para la especificación video del codificador-decodificador VP8 usada para entregar imágenes de vídeo. El codificador-decodificador video VP8 es definido por el proyecto de WebM en http://www.webmproject.org. Para participar en la creación, y determinar los términos de autorización, para una junta licencia de patentes del VP8, cualquier partido que crea tiene patentes que sean esenciales para el VP8 que se le invita a la especificación video del codificador-decodificador que la someta para una determinación de su esencialidad por los evaluadores de la patente de la MPEG-LA. Por lo menos una patente esencial es necesaria participar en el proceso, y las sumisiones de iniciales se deben hacer antes del 18 de marzo de 2011. Aunque solamente las patentes publicadas pueden ser incluidas en la licencia, para participar en el proceso de desarrollo de la licencia, las solicitudes de patente con las demandas que sus dueños creen son esenciales para la especificación y sean probables de publicar una patente también pueden ser sometidas. La información adicional, junto con los términos y los procedimientos que gobiernan sumisiones de la patente, se puede encontrar en http://www.mpegla.com/main/pid/vp8/default.aspx.

Nokia y Apple cabildearon previamente para que las TRAMPAS de las patente de MPEG-LA permanezcan válidos en HTML5. Eso estaba hace mucho tiempo y sobrevino mucho contragolpe. Nokia y Apple fueron desemascardos por esto y Microsoft hace lo mismo actualmente. Ahora que Nokia casi es una parte de Microsoft, es mucho más fácil destacar la fuente del problema y de las maneras de tratarlo. Esta discusión continuará en un futuro post.

  3. On the Internet, Trust Should Not Become Centralised

    “Trust” is a word that lost its meaning in the era of “TPM” and fancier names for 'Palladium'; we need to reject this idea that computers need to check with Microsoft if the operating system is trusted (not just Windows!), check with Gulag/Chrome if a Web site is trusted, and whether it's OK to run some application/s on one's own computer (as if Jim Zemlin et al get to decide what is trusted)



  4. Microsoft-Connected Publishers Suffer and Perish With Microsoft (While Peddling 'Fake News' for Their Beloved Sponsor)

    IDG and other fake news outlets/networks/sites (selling to companies flattering articles about themselves or renting out 'news space' to them, not just ad space) want us to think Microsoft is doing very well, but it's just that same old Ponzi scheme

  7. [Meme] EPO: Pursuing an Eastern and Western District of Europe (for Patent Trolls and Software Patents)

    With the EPO so flagrantly lying and paying for misinformation maybe we should expect Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos to have delusions of grandeur… such as presiding over the Eastern and Western District of Europe, just like Mr. Gilstrap and Mr. Albright (political appointment by Donald Trump, ushering in “the swamp”)



  8. Gemini at 2,000: 86% of Capsules Use Self-Signed Certificate, Just Like the Techrights Web Site (WWW)

    As shown in the charts above (updated an hour ago), the relative share of ‘Linux’ Foundation (LE/LF; same thing, same office) in the capsules’ certificates has decreased over time; more and more (in terms of proportion) capsules choose to sign their own certificate/s; the concept of ‘fake security’ (centralisation and consolidation) should be rejected universally because it leaves nobody safe except plutocrats



  9. [Meme] UPC: Many Lies as Headlines, Almost Exclusively in Publishers Sponsored by EPO and Team UPC to Produce Fake News (Lobbying Through Misinformation)

    Lest we forget that EPO dictators, like Pinky and the Brainless Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos, have long littered the EPO's official Web site as well as publishers not directly connected to the EPO (but funded by it) with disinformation about the UPC



  10. EPO as the 'Ministry of Truth' of Team UPC and Special Interests

    The 'Ministry of Truth' of the patent world is turning the EPO's Web site into a propaganda mill, a misinformation farm, and a laughing stock with stock photography



  11. Microsoft 'Delighted' by Windows 11 (Vista 11) Usage, Which is Only 1% Three Months After Official Launch and Six Months After Release Online

    Microsoft boosters such as Bogdan Popa and Mark Hachman work overtime on distraction from the failure Vista 11 has been (the share of Windows continues to fall relative to other platforms)

  13. Don't Fall for Microsoft's Spin That Says Everything is Not Secure and Cannot be Secured

    Microsoft keeps promoting the utterly false concept that everything is not secure and there's nothing that can be done about it (hence, might as well stay with Windows, whose insecurity is even intentional)



  14. At Long Last: 2,000 Known Gemini Capsules!

    The corporate media, looking to appease its major sponsors (such as Web/advertising giants), won't tell you that Gemini Protocol is rising very rapidly; its userbase and the tools available for users are rapidly improving while more and more groups, institutions and individuals set up their own capsule (equivalent of a Web site)

  18. Why the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is Still Just a Fantasy and the UPC's Fake News Mill Merely Discredits the Whole Patent 'Profession'

    Patents and science used to be connected; but now that the patent litigation 'sector' is hijacking patent offices (and even courts in places like Texas) it's trying to shove a Unified Patent Court (UPC) down the EU's throat under the disingenuous cover of "community" or "unity"

  20. Gemini Milestones and Growth (Almost 2,000 Known Gemini Servers Now, 39,000 Pages in Ours)

    The diaspora to Gemini Protocol or the transition to alternative 'webs' is underway; a linearly growing curve suggests that inertia/momentum is still there and we reap the benefits of early adoption of Gemini



  21. [Meme] Get Ready for Unified Patent Court (UPC) to be Taken to Court

    The Unified Patent Court (UPC) and Unitary Patent system that’s crafted to empower EPO thugs isn’t legal and isn’t constitutional either; even a thousand fake news 'articles' (deliberate misinformation or disinformation) cannot change the simple facts because CJEU isn’t “trial by media”



  22. The EPO Needs High-Calibre Examiners, Not Politicians Who Pretend to Understand Patents and Science

    Examiners are meant to obstruct fake patents or reject meritless patent applications; why is it that working conditions deteriorate for those who are intellectually equipped to do the job?



  23. Free Software is Greener

    Software Freedom is the only way to properly tackle environmental perils through reuse and recycling; the mainstream media never talks about it because it wants people to "consume" more and more products

  27. Proprietary Software is Pollution

    "My daughter asked me about why are we throwing away some bits of technology," Dr. Andy Farnell says. "This is my attempt to put into words for "ordinary" people what I tried to explain to a 6 year old."



  28. Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part XV — Cover-Up and Defamation

    Defamation of one’s victims might be another offence to add to the long list of offences committed by Microsoft’s Chief Architect of GitHub Copilot, Balabhadra (Alex) Graveley; attempting to discredit the police report is a new low and can get Mr. Graveley even deeper in trouble (Microsoft protecting him only makes matters worse)



  29. [Meme] Alexander Ramsay and Team UPC Inciting Politicians to Break the Law and Violate Constitutions, Based on Misinformation, Fake News, and Deliberate Lies Wrapped up as 'Studies'

    The EPO‘s law-breaking leadership (Benoît Battistelli, António Campinos and their corrupt cronies), helped by liars who don't enjoy diplomatic immunity, are cooperating to undermine courts across the EU, in effect replacing them with EPO puppets who are patent maximalists (Europe’s equivalents of James Rodney Gilstrap and Alan D Albright, a Donald Trump appointee, in the Eastern and Western Districts of Texas, respectively)



  30. Has the Administrative Council Belatedly Realised What Its Job in the European Patent Organisation Really Is?

    The "Mafia" which took over the EPO (the EPO's own workers call it "Mafia") isn't getting its way with a proposal, so it's preventing the states from even voting on it!
