Nice article here explaining how the real story is that MP3’s patent has expired, meaning that it’s now more accessible than ever.

MP3 is supported by everything, everywhere, and is now patent-free. There has never been another audio format as widely supported as MP3, it’s good enough for almost anything, and now, over twenty years since it took the world by storm, it’s finally free.”

“MP3 is dead” missed the real, much better story –
