Nej. Det er gældende i US, UK, DE, FR og IT.

1. Værktøjer som vi har på std. Linux distroer har ikke GIF med
2. Applikationer vi fremstiller kan ikke bruges i nævnte lande
3. Det vil være problmatisk at have GIF filer liggende på en US server
   (Du krænker måske et patent)

> Og betyder det overhoved noget om Apples patent er gældende i Danmark,

Ja. Du kan ikke samarbejde med en amerikaner om at lave noget der
indvoldvere PNG. Linux-distroer vil ikke indeholde patenterede algoritmer.
Så rent faktisk betyder det at patent der kun er gældende i US, implicit
også er gældende i resten af verden. I praksis kan du ikke retsforfølges,
men amerikanske programmøre kan.

Et væsentligt spørgsmål er om patentet holder. Det ved man først når det
er blevet prøvet i en retssag.

Noget tyder på at det ikke holder:
