The Opus codec is an audio codec that
was designed from the beginning to avoid existing patents in the field and
be royalty-free for all users. It was standardized by the IETF in 2012 as
RFC 6716.
Now a company called Vectis (“a premier
full-suite IP licensing and consultancy boutique
“) is collecting
patents that are claimed to read on Opus
as a way of demanding
royalties on its use. “The planned Opus program will focus on hardware devices and will not be
directed towards open-source software, applications, services, or
“. (Thanks to Paul Wise).
