1999.02.11 16:54 "Royalties for LZW compression", by Alex Murray

I heard a rumor that you can not use the LZW compresion in software that is going to be distributed commercially without out paying a royalty to the owners of the compression scheme. Can anyone out there tell me if this is true or not.

Thanks
