Yes and it's the same answer as for h.264 and h.265 for that matter. Only
add to that the extra licence fee you heavy to pay, which is a certainty -
the risk of getting sued is uncertain and frankly quite small compared to
other risks that you take as a small company.

It would be nice to remove those risks, too, yes, but it's not a show
stopper and no different between the codecs.

Silvia.
