Use free standards without DRM sign now

In connection with the recent behavior of such companies as Nokia, Apple have put pressure on w3c (World Wide Web Consortium) it for the last changed the format for video in the web, instead of Ogg / Theora + Vorbis. Nokia recommends using the format H.264 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264) (MPEG-4) for video and AAC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Audio_Coding) for the sound . Nokia outlined his position in an open letter (http://www.w3.org/2007/08/video/positions/Nokia.pdf), which refers to the use of proprietary technologies in the format Ogg, and the lack of funds to support the protection of copyright (DRM). But H.264 and ACC also reserved patents and require payments for the use, Ogg / Theora + Vorbis, in turn, requires no deductions and has patent which will provide protection from companies who want to "sell air". Looking at the quality of compression in some cases it wins or goes on an equal footing with H.264/ACC.
Make Ogg / Theora + Vorbis standard and do not change it, and Nokia and Apple earns money though other means.
