HTML 5 and video patents

From the article at "End Software Patents" wiki. "HTML is the standard, set by w3c, for how to write webpages. HTML5 was supposed to include a standard way to add video to webpages, but after lengthy discussions about software patents, the drafters announced on June 30th 2009 that they could find no freely implementable video format to recommend."

The W3C has been fighting with Apple over HTML 5 patents and a simple search on Google Patents reveals pages of patents for the "open" standard.
