    1) As servers owner I don't need "proven" codec if I can't stream video to USA citizens without f...ng up my brain and pocket with all these patents and royalties. So open and royalty free codec in a browser is a must. For the very same reason I seriously dislike MS and Apple. Hopefully they will die by horrible death. Together with mpeg la.
    2) DRM? Are you kidding? That's for those moron dinosaurs who still can't get idea their work on content copying costs nothing as of 2013. If you have to resort to DRM, this implies your business model is screwed up and about to die. It's like forcing someone to buy your wares using a gun to make your wares more attractive. It's not going to work well in long term anyway. You see, those who really want to pirate something never had any troubles with DRM. It only screws up legal users. And increases temption to use pirated content which is never comes with DRM. So pirated content not just cheaper. It also haves better quality due to lack of DRM. Then those idiots complain about piracy. Hey, maye you just show your face to your customers? Showing your butt to your customers would result in getting some painful kicks, lol. There is fairly simple way to kill piracy: make content cheap and convenient to use. Piracy would decline on it's own. If you screw up, there is demand to unscrew. Pirates just serve this demand, nothing more, nothing less.

      And Valve seems to have some good "gifts" for these stubborn nuts from redmond. Seriously, how many times you think you can screw up your customers before they'll give you a boot? MS seems to perform their self-destruction plan really well at this point. It's just amazing how many people became unhappy with their products recently.

        Why do we care what the ITU does or doesn't approve?

        Isn't this the same ITU that just tried to take over the internet, because they're afraid of losing their oversized profits? Shouldn't we all just ignore it and let it sink to irrelevance like it deserves?

          Yeah, screw the statists at the ITU. The internet's thriving because of the lack of government interference. The areas where it is suffering is mainly from copyrights and patents like with codecs and media content (aka, government intervention). Naturally, they wanted to ruin a great thing.

            Ok, so I guess we should just ignore that it was partially thanks to government intervention that ITU's (which is not a part of any particular government) plans were foiled, but ok.

            So anyway. Yeah. Patents are bad.
