Silly and Funny !!!

As you probably already know, The Gif format is right protected by a patent. Unisys ask you now to pay patents fees for the right to use gif on your own site. ---> 5,000 US$ by website !!!

Leave Gif for PNG that is far better.

With PNG, you could have millions of color, progressive display, and compress rate up to 300.

Unisys Request :
The Patent :
The PNG :
