"PAL was developed by Walter Bruch at Telefunken in Germany....

Telefunken was later bought by the French electronics manufacturer
Thomson. Thomson also bought the Compagnie Générale de Télévision where
Henri de France developed SECAM, the first European Standard for colour
television. Thomson, now called Technicolor SA, also owns the RCA brand
and licenses it to other companies; Radio Corporation of America, the
originator of that brand, created the NTSC colour TV standard before
Thomson became involved."

-> from the PAL wiki page.

Technicolor owns them all it seems.
