MP3 now usable?[edit]

With the expiration of U.S. Patent 5,812,672 on 2015-Sept-22 see: MP3 – Licensing, ownership and legislation is MP3 now patent free and can it be used on Wikimedia? Other US patents commonly claimed as MP3 patents such as PATENT 6185539 and PATENT 6009399 were filed in 1997, which is well after the MP3 standard came out (ISO/IEC 11172-3:1993 came out in 1993). Since the standard came out in 1993, countries where patents can at most last 20 years after publication are also safe for MP3. Jrincayc (talk) 02:57, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Hello. Please ask Commons:Village_pump/Copyright Jrincayc--Pierpao.lo (listening) 06:10, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
I've moved MP3 from non-free to requested (phab:T120288, phab:T115170). Apparently talking about 2017. –Be..anyone 💩 02:59, 26 April 2016 (UTC)


phab:T50519 was closed as resolved mumbling something about MediaWiki 1.26. We are at 1.27, but my VP8L test upload failed immediately, "WEBP not supported". What's the problem? –Be..anyone 💩 11:33, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

It would probably be better to ask the question someplace where MediaWiki developers hang out (this page is not one of those places)... AnonMoos (talk) 13:59, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, but the task number on the project page below COM:UNSUPPORTED is now wrong for WebP. –Be..anyone 💩 21:41, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Support request on MediaWikiWiki. –Be..anyone 💩 10:54, 24 April 2016 (UTC)
