I also think that google should be a lot more open on whos work they are building on. For example, the container of webm is matroska, just relabled as webm. But with no word are they thanked for the great work they have done to create this container. They are simple forgotten in all the hype creation machinery.
Perhaps you'd like them to say something like this on their "about" page?
What is WebM?
WebM is an open, royalty-free, media file format designed for the web.
WebM defines the file container structure, video and audio formats. WebM files consist of video streams compressed with the VP8 video codec and audio streams compressed with the Vorbis audio codec. The WebM file structure is based on the Matroska container.
