Prevailing "in the courts" takes this pretty far out of the hands of ordinary users, "regular consumers"
The advantage of non-encumbered codecs is that you never end up in court for using them.
has a nice right to it
I have a question: why so much upstream from Netflix? It seems like the requests and ratings that I send to them would be infinitesimal compared to what they send back down.
There must be a lot of prime numbers in your world
2^n-1 is always prime?
(2**4)-1 = 15
Macs have fans?
This will come in *very* handy when Windows 9 is released
