    Hmm, can anybody provide more information about the legal stuff?
    AFAIK jpeg6b is included in so many programs that I doubt that there
    are any problems.

I believe there are some advanced features of recent versions of JPEG
which are still patented, but that jpeg-6b and the "usual" jpeg support
is fine.

The GIF patents did indeed expire
(http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/gif.html) but I agree with you that there
is no reason to suddenly start supporting it.
