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.
Effi is the the biggest anti-sw-pat actor in Finland, and thus would seem to be the most likely contender to use non-patent-encumbered formats as an example for others. That is why I picked them as an example.
I'm just trying to point out that theora is on weaker ground since not even freedom activists embrace it with scale vorbis has been adopted.
