I don't remember that anyone was actually sued for using the LZW
compression algorithm (certainly not a company rather close to
Debian). Maybe the case was so clear that every paid royalties. In
this case, it could be a good sign that this is taken to the courts.
But I'm not sure. Removing JPEG support would at least help to get
the software patent message across.
