>From the TechWhirl archives on screen captures:

As a result of some unfortunate licensing issues, a cloud hangs over the GIF
file format. Urban legend aside, you need not pay a licensing fee for using
GIF images created with most software because the software manufacturers
have paid for the use of the licensed bits of code that they use.
