Some choice quotes:
"The MP3-patent claims have never been challenged in court--or even in
licensing negotiations, as Thomson's Linde confirms."
Linde is the director of licensing. Heh. I think this will make people
a lot less worried. First they claim there's no way. They they concur
that their IP has never even been challenged :)
"Personally, I like the open-source movement," Linde says. "However, it
is not a funded movement. If the effort is not to commercialize it, how
good a product can it be?" -Linde
How good indeed. Tell that to the LAME team who's independent
implementation rival's Fraunhofers own.
