Taking a single example of a non-Theora using nonprofit (that does not represent in any way the whole of the "community") from our little country that has had no software patent litigation so far is of no worth as an argument to any intellectually honest person. I'll mind you also that the local authorities have granted software patents here as well, EFFI merely asserts that those are nevertheless illegal here. It's quite likely businesses are already threatened into paying protection behind the scenes, though; not something you want to be happening with a Web standard either.
Incidentally, you're also wrong about H.261, as it's not yet old enough. H.120 would be. That's 1982 technology.
