The interview with Jeff Jaffe is worth to read.

As far as I understand him he is (or was) not completely aware what the
implications of DRM are and what the discussion here on the list is
about (or the questions were incomplete).

The discussion certainly is not just about potential patent issues. I
personally think that they are secondary. Even the patent encumbered
H.264 is specified in detail and the specification is available for
everybody including Open Source developers and it can be implemented and
used in many jurisdictions (which are not under the complete influence
of certain lobby groups).

Cheers,
Andreas
