Glaser Says that MPEG-4 License Fees Could Make It "Irrelevant in the PC Industry"

CNET News.com reports that Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser decried the proposed royalty structure for the MPEG-4 video compression standard. Glaser said, "The licensing structure is putting the technology on a path to become irrelevant in the PC industry." He made his comments at the Streaming Media West Conference in Los Angeles.

We agree. We pointed out the practical flaws in the royalty proposal in an article we posted on the subject in February.
