Here we show the results of a research published in a 2017 law journal article, by two law professors. There’s been some editorial coverage of the Sisvel VP9/AV1 pools and we wanted to provide a partial bibliography as of today to anyone interested in third-party perspectives of the pools.

Here’s a list for the Sisvel Pools:
