There remains a great deal of confusion in the industry about the state of patent litigation and IPR disclosures around VP8. To facilitate greater understanding, Duane Morris LLP drafted a paper that summarizes the current state of disclosures and patent litigation based on publically available materials, and has posted a comprehensive report on the Internet. This Internet Draft provides a high level summary of that report. Cisco Systems requested and funded Duane Morris to prepare this report.
