And that is indeed good news, Kevin.  But can we make mp3 irrevelant by 
the time the patents expire?  That should be the goal.  And yes, the 
pro audio folks are well aware of ogg from my observations.  Now we 
just need to figure out a way to get that message out to Joe SixPack & 
friends.  We, or better yet FOSS/Vorbis, need some sort of a "new, and 
improved, and better than mp3" label and logo that can readily be 
identified by Joe to be used in ALL publicity.

OTOH, very few seem to understand that the lack of the Phillips owned 
"compact disk digital audio" label on a cd should mean other than squat 
to them.  Phillips hasn't exactly spent more than pocket change to tell 
the public about that.

Education, education, education.

Cheers, Gene
