Default Google open codec wins OSI love after patent shield rethink

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/06...s_vp8_license/

Quote:
Google has rejiggered the license on its open-source VP8 video codec after complaints that it wasn't really open source.

Today, with a blog post, Google's Chris DiBona announced that the company had switched to a pure BSD license, ending a bit of a feud with various open source stalwarts over the codec.
