Via Licensing Corporation (San Francisco) has announced the availability of MPEG-4 Audio patent licenses, which provides streamlined access to a set of essential MPEG-4 Audio patents from multiple parties, under reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms. An MPEG-4 Audio patent license is needed by companies that build and/or sell end-user products incorporating MPEG-4 audio technologies.

"The commencement of MPEG-4 Audio licensing is the result of unprecedented cooperation among a set of international consumer electronics, telecommunications and research organizations," said Ramzi Haidamus, general manager of Via Licensing Corporation. "This is a very significant milestone, and we are excited to be offering a license that will enable the widespread deployment of an important open standard such as MPEG-4 Audio."
