MPEG LA, LLC today issued the revised MPEG-4 Visual Patent Portfolio License for the MPEG-4 Visual (Part 2) Standard.
The revisions were outlined in a press release in April 2004 (see http://www.mpegla.com/news/n_04-04-29_m4v.pdf); the revised License retains many of the same terms as the old License but is simpler for both manufacturers and video providers to apply. The MPEG-4 Visual Patent Portfolio License, which issued in November 2002, now has more than 140 Licensees representing a wide spectrum of users (see http://www.mpegla.com for a list of Licensees). The revised License will be offered to all new as well as current licensees.
