LZW or some such.

Didn't that patent expire already?


As I understand it ...

* In the USA the Unisys patent expired on 20 June 2003
* In Europe it expired on 18 June 2004
* In Japan it expired on 20 June 2004
* In Canada it expired on 7 July 2004

Last of all, the U.S. IBM patent expired 11 August 2006.
