Bye bye MP3: You sucked the life out of music. But vinyl is just as warped

Re: MP3

This story provides no evidence that expiration of MP3 patents would discourage use of the MP3 format.

Yes, compression always reduces quality, but any MP3 with 256-320 kbs typical for Amazon etc. downloads is indistinguishable from a CD for almost all users - 90+ of stereos, 99+% of car stereos, and 100% of phones.
