More on DivX

Joe Bezdek, co-founder of DivX Inc., comments on Brian Tiemann’s weblog entry regarding MPEG-4 vs. DivX:

In the comments, tf writes “It is well known that DivX is a massive violation of mpeg patents.” If this is “well known,” then it’s another example of inaccurate conventional wisdom about DivX. In fact, we (DivX, Inc.) are a licensee of MPEGLA, have been for many years, and pay all MPEG-4 licensing fees in full. (This, by the way, is more than can be said for other MPEG-4 implementations such as Xvid.)
