It is difficult to prove something does not exist but I think it is not patented but this one is patentedsee

I would like to continue the discussion on this topic. As far as I found out, the original BM3D algorithm is not patented. So what is the reason that it is part of the nonfree modules?

BTW: Non-Local Means seems to be patented [1] and it is not in nonfree.
