APP Lodsys patents = MPEG-LA ?

There is much to do about Lodsys demanding a license-fee from app-developers for there in-app upgrades, we all assume that Apple's license to this technology should cover the app-developers.
How i understand it, the MPEG, JPG and GIF licences work exactly the same, Apple (member of the MPEG-LA) paid for the
licensing in osX and iOS but each graphic application also pays a licence on
there own. There is even a free licence to publish these formats on the
internet but a license non the less, apparently all 3 groups need
Is this the same or are there differences i don't see?
