When transcription of bacterial rRNAs and tRNAs is completed they are immediately ready for use in translation. No additional processing takes place. Translation of bacterial mRNAs can begin even before transcription is completed due to the lack of the nuclear-cytoplasmic separation that exists in eukaryotes. The ability to initiate translation of prokaryotic RNAs while transcription is still in progress affords a unique opportunity for regulating the transcription of certain genes. An additional feature of bacterial mRNAs is that most are polycistronic. This means that multiple polypeptides can be synthesized from a single primary transcript. Polycistronic mRNAs are very rare in eukaryotic cells but have been identified. The mitochondrial genomes in mammals and the slime mold, Dictyostelium discoideum , encode polycistronic mRNAs that are processed into primarily mono-, di-, and tricistronic transcripts. In addition, several viruses encode polycistronic RNAs.
MPEG-4 contains patented technologies, the use of which requires licensing in countries that acknowledge software algorithm patents . Over two dozen companies claim to have patents covering MPEG-4. MPEG LA  licenses patents required for MPEG-4 Part 2 Visual from a wide range of companies (audio is licensed separately) and lists all of its licensors and licensees on the site. New licenses for MPEG-4 System patents are under development  and no new licenses are being offered while holders of its old MPEG-4 Systems license are still covered under the terms of that license for the patents listed ( MPEG LA – Patent List ).
