Although second-to-market behind the superior quality Betamax, JVC engineers Yuma Shiraishi and Shizuo Takano fought and eventually won a brutal decade-long format war with an argument grounded in the philosophical stance that fair use and open standards are better for society. 

Sony had locked down their earlier Betamax technology, charging licensing fees for anyone wishing to utilize, monetize, or improve upon them. Shiraishi and Takano argued that sharing technology among inventors and competitors without licensing was better for consumers and society at large. On their shoulders, the VHS era was born. Home entertainment would be forever changed.
