The patent fee is paid as was stated by Cisco:

"We plan to open-source our H.264 codec, and to provide it as a binary
module that can be downloaded for free from the Internet. Cisco will
not pass on our MPEG LA licensing costs for this module, and based on
the current licensing environment, this will effectively make H.264
free for use in WebRTC."

How that can be implemented... or even if it can be... no idea, but
according to the statement from Cisco, the fees are paid on H.264 and
it's available for anyone to use.

We need to wait until something is finally available at all. Up to now this is a
press announcement only AFAIK.
