      Would love a website that had important patent countdowns. Like video formats, audio formats etc. Also a countdown for copyrights coming into public domain, though I imagine it will change again.

        Someone should remove the two S3TC rows from https://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/ now that S3TC is supported everywhere.
        Also update https://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/S3TC/

          Copyrights are extended every time Disney's are about to go public, which I believe is happening again pretty soon.

            Murica, the land of freedoms. It's the same with gun control. NRA controls the whole state.

              I wish they were refused this time. Disney is way too powerful and is sucking major parts of former game industry into itself. They have basically limitless amounts of money to do this until their primary copyrights expire

                  Something kinda like that but focused. Like MPEG2, Winnie the Pooh, etc. Most people wouldn't be interested that another patent for a standard is expiring, They want to know when the standard is no longer patent encumbered.

                    What do you say about this? This thing seems not to be expired!
