"A lot of things are patented in all kinds of countries. The question is whether or not these patents can actually be enforced."

When a legal situation becomes this close, it actually boils down to this: if the MPEG-LA decide to drag this backwards and forwards through court, who do you think will run out of money first, MPEG-LA and its industry backers or you / mozilla.org / EFF / etc.?

It won't be the MPEG-LA.

It's a very sad commentary on the US legal system that it's turned into a
game of 'who will run out of money first' so damn often. Nobody even
*mentions* justice anymore.
