It might be time to say goodbye to the MP3 - so let's look back at its life

The MP3 is officially "no more".

Well - that's according to a statement from one of the main developers of the digital audio coding format in Germany.

The Fraunhofer Institute says it has "terminated" its licensing programme with Technicolor because its patents are expiring.

MP3s led to the development of hundreds of music-listening devices, which took over from CD players, including Apple's iPod, the Sony Walkman MP3, Microsoft Zune and Samsung Galaxy Player.

The Fraunhofer Institute says the quality of the format is also inferior to its current standard.

That's called AAC - or "Advanced Audio Coding".

Laughs out loud patents expiring = cheaper/free products
