AtomicJake writes: If you buy a new camera, you are bound by its MPEG LA license to only use it for "personal use and non-commercial" purposes. So, if you put your own movie with ads on your server, you may actually be liable to pay royalties. Even, if the distribution format is not under the MPEG LA license. This view is explained by Eugenia Loli-Queru, who thinks that our civilization's video art and culture is threatened by the MPEG LA.
