Nokia and Google have clashed over software that is part of free-to-use video encoding technology.

Google wants its video coding program, called VP8, to be a core part of the WebM project that is making web-centred video production tools.

But Nokia says it owns key patents that define parts of VP8 and has filed an official objection to Google's plan.

Nokia said it filed the objection to stop Google's software replacing more open alternatives.Nokia Files Objections Over Google's Plan For VP8 Codec Being Part of WebM [bbc.co.uk]
