I would almost agree, but if I can make a simple jpeg compression in class using Matlab, then i would wonder about its worthiness as a patent. Also, any format, for it to be accepted, needs to be free so that It gains acceptance. I don't feel like people should make money off formats, it seems somehow wrong.

Real Programmers don't write in FORTRAN. FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies. FORTRAN is for wimp engineers who wear white socks.
