I don't think H.264 is patented in the UK. Why can't we have a version of Firefox that supports it?
This is what I have been wondering. Wouldn't it be possible to distribute an H.264 version in areas where it isn't patented?
Also, what do decisions such as these mean for software patents in the US?
