Yes, and the moderator rules specifically say that what he did was against the rules -- and that what I did wasn't.
In all fairness - that quote is from the latest revision of the moderator rules.. they were created after the fact. Prior to that, there were only informal rules and nothing about vested interests in software.

And MatLz is right, we really need to get back to topic.
I think it has been fairly well established that a source code only distribution is in no violation of any licensing contract. So ffmpeg is okay, x264 is okay and we could go on. We're also not the MPEGLA's enforcing arm.. so if you distribute binaries on your own, you're responsable for your own actions.

What I'm unsure about though is... say you distribute binaries.. noncommercially and in small numbers. Do you need to register with the MPEGLA even if the number if binaries you provide falls under the treshold? And if so, how do both parties ensure that the number of distributed binaries remains under that treshold over the years?

Yes, you must have a license from MPEGLA. As a licensee you are required to report at least annually. The license contains a clause giving MPEGLA the right to conduct an audit of your compliance, at your site if they so desire.

BTW, my signed license was submitted last week.

Is it possible to host some DGMPGDec binaries there also?

Now I'm thinking it's available already bundled with MEGUI, so that should be sufficient.

I would have offered to help you out with hosting (as I already help Mulder with updates for his apps) but I'll probably move my dedicated servers to US soon and I doubt you'd be interested then... I'd suggest you get megui.net while it's available just to be on the safe side... if you're interested but don't have funds i could get it for you and transfer it later on.

later edit: Sharktooh, I was just thinking about the whole ordeal with koepi.org which was lost and is not just a placeholder with ads, koepi.info being the proper site now. For me at least, koepi was the "reference" place to download xvid binaries...

yes, unless newer versions...

@mariush: i dont really care about the domain. for example megui.org is not mine... however, if you want to register it i wont say no.

Presumably you would absorb them in a timely fashion if I notify you of them. New versions of DGMPGDec are infrequent nowadays.

You may be interested to hear that MPEG-LA will also ask you to list your distribution of H.264 decoders in the past (and pay fees if necessary) as part of your agreement. I assume you will declare the correct number of downloads for DGAVCDec.

How do you know that?

Well, that depends on who controls reality, doesn't it?

I never posted "anyone who discusses X will be struck". This is a plain and simple fabrication.
With all due respect, with the extensive use of moderator power being employed here, how could anyone know what you did or didn't post?

I am simply saying you like to change history quite frequently, and subsequently it is impossible to tell what was or wasn't said. I am not calling you a liar. I am; however, saying you overuse your moderator power in the deletion and editing of threads and posts.

And then you struck multiple people for starting new threads anyways. Don't try to lie your way out of this one; I have list of people who did exactly what you told them to do, and nevertheless you struck them anyways and deleted their threads.

This thread is the result after you got bored of striking people.

You said specifically that any post on the topic in that thread would be deleted -- using your moderator powers to keep negative posts out of a thread about your commercial software. Deletion of posts was, in all cases, followed up with a strike. Again, don't try to lie your way out of this one. We saved all your posts.

@linyx

You're welcome to your opinions, but in this specific case, put up or shut up. If I ask Doom9 to review the edits on that thread and he states that I never posted what DS claimed I did and which you questioned, will you apologize for casting doubt on my credibility in this case?

That is not correct. They were struck for insults and rule 3/17 violations.

That is not correct. The strikes to other people were issued after this thread was created.

That is a lie. I have logs on IRC of people posting threads specifically about the relevant topic. They then said you deleted their posts and struck them. Roughly 3-5 people tried this. All had their threads deleted and struck. None posted insults. All attempted civil discussion of the topic.

We all know that you strike people for whatever you want, regardless of what they actually did. What you "struck people for" is a meaningless formality.

"Discussion of something related to neuron2" == "discussion of moderation" == "you can ban us whenever you want".

I already did. If he wants to stop neuron2, he can do so right now with no debate. If he doesn't, that's his fault, not mine.
