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.

Current mail filters: many dial-up/DSL/cable modem hosts, and the
following domains: atlas.cz, bigpond.com, di-ve.com, netscape.net,
postino.it, tiscali.co.uk, tiscali.cz, tiscali.it, voila.fr.
