H.265 Codec Standard Has Been Approved - but even more of a patent mess

http://j.mp/VegjEN  (InfoQ)

   "The H.265 codec standard, the successor of H.264, has been approved,
    promising support for 8k UHD and lower bandwidth, but the patent
    issues plaguing H.264 remain."

Of course, Google's royalty-free WebM can't be used, since it's FREE.
Oh no, can't have that!  Also, more processing requirements will tend
to mean even more battery life concerns for portable devices.
