This document from Qualcomm may help.


it states :

 Companies will not have to pay royalties or license fees because they have
implemented the DASH Standard using Qualcomm's DASH Essential Patents
within a standalone software application sold and distributed separately
from a product capable of implementing a WWAN standard, even if this
software application is eventually used on a WWAN device.

Yet, I don't know if Qualcomm is the sole patent owner for DASH.

Concerning the purpose of adaptative streaming, just like Brad said, there
is the "unpredictible bandwith drop" use case.

But, like I said earlier, I am more interested in the P2P streaming useage
of DASH : Clients will be able to exchange DASH fragment over WebRTC's
Datachannel, so that less bandwith is consumed on the icecast server.
