    VP8 was around for a long time before google released the source code. And they were competing against mpeg-la, which made a little noise a few times about how it must be violating some of their patents.

    For that matter, VP8 didn't bring very much that wasn't already present in VP7 before that. VP8 was mostly a simplification/optimization update to that codec.

    VP8 in any form was never released to the public until Google acquired it. The last released codec from On2 was VP7. When the h264 spec was released On2's "New" codec was vp6 in October of 2003.
