Bullshit, IP is IP, if Canon invested a lot of time and effort into their file protocols they should be able to do what they want with them with regards allowing other companies to profit from their work, if that doesn’t suit your needs don’t buy one of their cameras.This is all nice. But Canon needs to stop threatening open source projects that want to access CR3 files. All of the opensource photoeditors are ready to add CR3 support but are held back by threats from Canon. So I have had an R for over a year and still can't edit RAW files from it. It is just another example of Canon finding new ways to cripple their cameras. I use my 80D more than my R becuase I can use RAW files. I am not buying another Canon any thing until they pull their heads out of their drain pipes.
You can always export a .CR3 as a TIFF from DPP for free.
