on2 is still cheaper then legally using MPEG4. You only pay for encoding
the rest is free. The older codecs are completely free to use. They were done because MPEG4 was too expensive. If you are using MPEG4 you might end up paying up to 1,000,000 USD of licensing fees or 0,25 USD per played video due to the patent situation.

If anyone knows an alternative to MPEG4 and vp6 let me know...
