Mpeg-2 patents have now expired in most countries at the beginning of 2018. However, at least Malaysia and Philippines still have active mpeg-2 patents.

So does anyone know when mpeg-2 patents expire in Malaysia and Philippines ?

Addition: I've written an mpeg-2 decoder and wondering when I can give it away free.

  • That's a pretty big question. There is no "the mpeg-2" patent which we could just look up. There might be a more or less complete list of relevant patents somewhere because it's such a big standard, but per se, the question would require researching in every country any possibly relevant patent. – DonQuiKong Nov 27 '18 at 10:25
