Developers of the MP3 have Put an End to it in a Suitable Manner

Apparently it seems that MP3 which allowed music fans to listen to their favorite tunes is defunct now for all purposes. Its license has expired and the service is no more to be availed by music lovers spread throughout the world.

According to Gizmodo, the history of patents and ownership on MP3 is a long drawn out affair that involved a lot of litigation.

This decision to end the MP3 service is rather like the revolutionary move away from obsolete floppy drives and towards brand new CD-ROMs. It is an inevitable thing that involves an “out with the old” and “in with the new” strategy.

According to Fortune, this is the day that the music died. The era of the MP3 is finally over and done with. More flexible and agile formats will be availed by the developers and makers from now onwards.

Greater features and more fidelity as regards sound quality will be coming to the platform which is indeed a good thing. This decision will not be making much of a dent in the music industry. Other channels already exist. While it lasted though, the MP3 revolution sure took the entire global village by storm.
