In its earlier decisions, which have since been published, the Landgericht Dusseldorf established that DVD video discs and other record carriers carrying data structures generated by applying a patent protected coding method (such as the MPEG-2 Standard "without whose technical standardization mass dissemination of the DVD technology would be inconceivable") constitute infringing products of a patent protected method.
The MPEG-2 Standard is the core technology underlying the efficient creation, transmission, storage and display of digitized moving images and soundtracks on which DVD and other digital technologies are based; DVD-Video Discs in accordance with the DVD-Video Standard (DVD Specifications for Read-Only Disc, Part 3: VIDEO SPECIFICATIONS) contain information formatted in accordance with the MPEG-2 standard.
