 Warning on GIF anf filemaker

Filemaker gives GIF as default image.
Better to convert them into PNG since Unisys who as a patent on GIF
decided to ask a 5K$ for anyone using them for any purpose including web
page to commerciale application.
For more info or if you dont believe me look at:

There are several other link.

" Unisys is now demanding that web sites pay them $5000 or more to use these
now-obsolete GIF graphics if the software originally used to create the GIFs
was not covered by an appropriate Unisys license."

I do think Filemaker has a license to use GIF. ??

Last time I checked - FileMaker doesn't *create* .gif files, these
being a graphical format. If you used soemthing reputable to make
the original images, then there shouldn't be a problem. Seems a lot
of hot air overall...
