          Unisys Enforcing Patents

ESR writes "Remember the flap back in 1994-1995 about the GIF format, with
Unisys behaving like jerks over the LZW compression method and threatening
to charge license fees for use of their bogus patent? Well, brace
yourselves. It just got worse. Under Unisys's new policy, they've gone
beyond shaking down software authors. They're now threatening to sue even
noncommercial websites that carry GIFs for a $5000 license fee, regardless
of whether the GIFs were generated by licensed software or not. The gory
details are at Don Marti's Burn All GIFs Day site. Time to convert all
your GIFs to some other format. I like PNG better than JPEG, as it's
lossless. The PNG site carries a gif2png tool that does a good job; I just
used it to clean up my personal website. GIF animations won't survive the
conversion, however...uh, wait. Maybe Unisys just did us a favor after
all... "
