+Silicon Graphics has seen fit to allow us to give this work away. It

+
+The libtiff software was written by Sam Leffler while working for
+Silicon Graphics.<p>
+
+The LZW algorithm is derived from the compress program (the proper attribution
+is included in the source code). The Group 3 fax stuff originated as code
+from Jef Poskanzer, but has since been rewritten several times. The latest
+version uses an algorithm from Frank Cringle -- consult
+<TT>libtiff/mkg3states.c</TT> and <TT>libtiff/tif_fax3.h</TT> for further
+information. The JPEG support was written by Tom Lane and is dependent on the
+excellent work of Tom Lane and the Independent JPEG Group (IJG) who distribute
+their work under friendly licensing similar to this software. Joris Van Damme
+implemented the robust Old JPEG decoder (as included in libtiff since version
+3.9.0, there was another Old JPEG module in older releases, which was
+incomplete and unsuitable for many existing images of that format). JBIG
+module was written by Lee Howard and depends on JBIG library from the Markus
+Kuhn. Many other people have by now helped with bug fixes and code; a few of
+the more persistent contributors have been:
