I believe that the GIF patent has just lapsed.
As a further not, I don't believe anyone has yet clarified why simply
using the PHOTO attribute in a vcard is not acceptible for an avatar

like a 'we have this technology, let's use it' solution rather than a
'this is the simplest and best way of doing it' solution.
