I don't know why online people are saying "officially dead" when it's just that it has become patent-free (royalty-free) now, it should be more alive!

Of course, there are better, more modern formats, I guess those are patent encumbered meaning companies want to spread the topic that MP3 is dead so they can push paid formats again :D
