    There were 16 members from day one including:



    AMD

    Cisco Systems

    HiSilicon Technologies (for itself and its parent, Huawei)

    Logitech

    Mozilla Corporation

    Opera Software

    STMicroelectronics (for itself and its 50/50 joint venture, ST-Ericsson)

    I agree with you Mel. It's all too common for some posters to equate an investigation with guilt. Or confuse some bloggers comments with indisputable facts.



    As I mentioned earlier, there's usually more gray (or perhaps pots and kettles?) than black and white when one company/organization accuses another of wrongdoing IMHO.

    I don't see how some of those companies can contribute anything. A number have no patents in this area. Are these companies exhibiting solidarity, because they are using WebM, rather than contributing IP?
