They're winding it down now because soon enough a 'license' would be meaningless anyway and they want to move legacy customers on to the new hotness (preserving their revenue stream). That most news outlets, even specialized ones, are dutifully parroting the company line about 'obsolescence' is disheartening (even if the format has in fact been eclipsed in terms of efficiency by AAC and Opus). Expiring software patents = good news for everyone, and makes it more, not less, likely, by the way, that commercial services that use MP3 downloads will stick to it.
