No your doing a massive job keeping up with all this. And I doubt anyone would say that the information you dig up isn't helpful as most of us would have probably given this up by now lol. I know it's all conjecture at the moment though. But it's interesting that given all this, and Barry's past, That this seems to pop up so much.

If the codec tech was that hot ****e, there would (and will) be bigger guns on it like stink on a monkey long before the small fry heard about it.

You don't really think a company like Google, MS or Apple wouldn't snap up a revolutionary technology without saying a word for either patents or further development, do you?  Long before a furniture vendor in Florida would have, the big sharks would have been all over it if it was worthwhile and not a complete clusterf*ck of legality.

Nah, they've only done it hundreds upon hundreds of times, lol.

Good grief. One has to wonder what these giants would have on their own today if they couldn't acquire so much. Seems like only the small guys innovate anymore, kind of like starving artists, then the giants poach them like salmon swimming upstream. Very sad when you think about how things were in the 1970s-1980s compared to today.
