I think you will hear soon than the person who posted that to Slashdot
was wrong and misunderstood the license.

| Dear Patrick,
| I am the public relations person for Thomson multimedia (mp3 licensing) and
| was copied on your email.  Please take a look below at the company statement
| response from Thmomson multimedia regarding the Slashdot posting - which was
| written by someone who completely misunderstood the mp3 licensing program!
| Most important, there is no change whatsoever to the mp3 licensing program,
| which has pretty much stayed intact since its inception in 1995!  Please
| stay with mp3 - it has always been Thomson's biggest objective to be totally
| accessible and fair to the consumer, and always will be!
| Sincerely,
| Steve Syatt
| SSA Public Relations (for Thomson multimedia, mp3 Licensing)
