MP3s. We know 'em. We love 'em. And now that Thompson (the patent holder) is charging royalties for MP3 encoders and decoders, we're gonna see a lot less of 'em, I bet.*

Ogg Vorbis, anyone?


* Of course I said the same thing about GIFs... but Vorbis is using this to their distinct marketing advantage; something libpng never did. Oh, I hope this takes off, I really do.
