ActionScript.com writes: Apple Sues Sorenson to end license with Macromedia
Apple says Sorenson breached a contract that prohibits it from “developing, marketing, or licensing” any version of the compression software used in QuickTime to competitors such as Macromedia, according to court papers filed Friday in federal court in San Jose, California.
This is bad, Apple seems to think they should be alone in having access to Sorenson’s technology, and seems peed off about Macromedia’s Flash MX video technology. Maybe they have understood that it will make it much easier for people to make available video content on the web, without the need for their Quicktime player? After all, the download of the Flash 6 player is a lot lighter than the Quicktime download.
