As I understand it, the "billable" events are:
* Creating the GIF
* Rendering the GIF

It isn't the visitor using the decompression process, but the visitor's
HTML browser. And for *that* the browser maker is supposed to have paid
a fee.

At the other end, the developers of the software with which the GIF was
created (whether originally or by conversion of an image in another
format) are supposed to have paid a fee, as well.
