Submission + - Nero Files Antitrust Case Against MPEG-LA ( 1

hkmwbz writes: German technology company Nero AG has filed an antitrust complaint against the MPEG-LA, the company that manages the H.264 patent pool. Nero claims that the MPEG-LA has violated the law and achieved and abused 100% market share, by, among other things, using "independent experts" that weren't independent after all, not weeding out non-essential patents from the pool (in fact, it has grown from the original 53 to more than 1000), and retroactively changing previously agreed on license terms. The MPEG-LA is run by patent trolls, so the group's behavior is not entirely unexpected.
