Worried about steadily rising royalty fees for online MP3 music companies, a
group of open source developers has created a new music format they say will
be free and will equal or better MP3's quality. Dubbed "Vorbis", the open
source project is being led by programmers at CMGI's iCast. It is scheduled
be unveiled in beta form at next week's MP3.com summit in San Diego. It will
be released to the Web without intellectual property restrictions, which
means software companies, Internet radio firms and music sellers can use the
format without paying patent holders a dime
