Beijing E-World and On2 Technologies, Inc. recently announced that On2's VP5 and VP6 video codecs are included in China's industrial standard for the new Enhanced Versatile Disk (EVD).



edit : Just found an article about the "new SBR-enhanced codec, EAC 2.0" which should be used in EVDs

And here we see another case of the industry attempting to lock down a format (DVD), and the non-Western countries rejecting it due to that fact. It would be nice if they'd learn something from this. Now that DRM is beginning to infiltrate computing (I recall reading about the latest AMD CPUs containing DRM-enabled "features" already), I wonder how long it will be before China gets annoyed about that and does something to counteract it. I mean, DVD encryption (CSS) was insecure, and even that much got rejected.

Before long, "Made in China" may be a symbol of freedom, at least for hardware. Wouldn't that be ironic?

1. Attack the argument, not the arguer.
2. Assume good faith.
