MPEG LA announced today that enforcement actions have been brought in Landgericht Düsseldorf, Germany against Samsung Electronics GmbH ("Samsung") for infringement of patents in MPEG LA's HEVC Patent Portfolio License. The patents are essential to the HEVC (also known as H.265 and MPEG-H Part 2) digital video coding standard used in products that encode and decode video for Internet, television and mobile transmission, reception and use.

According to the complaints, Samsung Electronics GmbH's parent Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. was both Licensor and Licensee to MPEG LA's HEVC Patent Portfolio License from Fall 2014 until terminating in March 2020, but Samsung has continued to offer products including smartphones, tablets and televisions in Germany that use patent protected HEVC methods without license since termination. The enforcement actions seeking injunctions, monetary damages and expenses were prepared by a team of lawyers led by Axel Verhauwen of Krieger Mes & Graf v. der Groeben and Gottfried Schüll of Cohausz & Florack.

That is actually two people.

Axel Verhauwen, a partner at the law firm Krieger Mes & Graf v. der Groeben, and Gottfried Schüll, from the law firm Cohausz & Florack.
Both are attorneys that focus on patent law.

AV1, AV2 in the future etc can't become widespread soon enough to save us from this nonsense

... It sucks and badly at encoding times. Hence why it's not really popular yet, outside from the few that can waste a ton of time for the encoding (such as Youtube) and even then you're likely to get something else (h264 or VP9) rather than AV1.

I agree with you, but as soon as dedicated ASICs or encoding accelerators inside GPUs or CPUs become more widespread, encoding time will not be a problem anymore. Or it can be brute-forced by adding some more cores (AMD, Intel and ARM server chip vendors have that covered).

It still takes painfully long even on 12-core 5900X with libaom....hours per 1 minute of 4k high bitrate video. Fullhd is reasonably fast.

I didnt know it is that slow ... guess I'm spoiled by H.264 which is faster than realtime on my humble 3700X when rendering in 4k with some light processing and filters in Blackmagic Resolve.
Edit: Faster than realtime means 30fps video is rendered at 60-100FPS. OK, if it was 60fps it would not be much faster than realtime but still far from an hour per minute of video. Guess that AV-1 is really hard on the encoding side then.
