First, thank you to everyone who has responded to my original message.
I'm looking forward to learning more about Vorbis, I think I'll be
better prepared now. No doubt I'll have some more questions...

Oh yes, no problem there. Fraunhofer's site has all the info you might
need. MP3'Tech also has a good precis on the patent issues. Bottom line
is very clear: Fraunhofer owns the MP3, they can do what they like about
it, including pressing Internet MP3 broadcasters. I'll have guides to
that information linked in my article.
An alternative to MP3 is needed. I'm hoping Vorbis is it. Any comments
about that hope ?
