www.spreadopenmedia. com/ Spread Open Media]''' (or SOM) is a project to promote the different Xiph.Org Foundation formats. You may help create or edit content in the official site by making edits in this wiki.
== Why Open Media Matters ==
* You can use, modify, and distribute [[Free software|Free]] software for open formats without needing permission from (or paying royalties to) [[software patent]] holders.
* It has equal or better quality compared with formats that stuff DRM up your nose and get you sued in court.
* You can share media files across P2P and different operating systems, and it will work on those computers because the specification of the formats are open.
* You can save your bandwidth in case you author podcasts or stream content, and those will have better quality than when using proprietary formats.
* The more people that use open media, the better formats you can expect in the future, so if you use open media you are making the world a little bit of a better place.
* It's one of those little things that make you feel happier.
* We'll lose our job if you don't use open media, and if we lose our job, I'll shoot this little bunny that I'm holding right now. I'M SERIOUS; DON'T MAKE ME KILL THE LITTLE BUNNY.
