MCBA Benefits for Licensees

The MCBA provides numerous benefits for Licensees, such as:

  • The total royalty rate payment for Licensee Products implementing both VVC functionality and HEVC functionality are significantly reduced as compared to the additive rates of the individual pools
  • Simplified reporting, invoicing, and payment
  • Certainty that rates and caps will not increase by more than 20% for any Renewal Term
  • Certainty of licensing terms through 2035
  • Simplified Patent Marking and Trademark Logo usage on VVC+HEVC Products (one notice and one logo addresses obligations under both the HEVC Advance Patent Pool and the VVC Advance Patent Pool)
