Who owns the patents on the MP4 format?

The International Standards Organization?

The Motion Picture Experts Group?

The container, I presume.
H.264 is not the only type of video stream allowed in MP4 files...

The container itself comes directly from Apple's QuickTime container (*.mov).

It's over twenty years old. Whatever patents there ever were, have expired.

Remember that I'm talking about the container - not the content.
