GIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, and XPM are the formats supported, thats why I enabled it :)


That said next time there are no more missing formats in the gd library so you are in the clear


Also XPM is a nich format, but it is used, in fact i think KDE uses it for some stuff iirc


EDIT: My bad its the x window system that uses it

actually the red cross is only  an issue if its a red cross on a white background and is protected by more then just trademark


The Red Cross name and emblem are not the property of the American Red Cross as a corporation. The American Red Cross is entitled to use the name and emblem only because it is the officially designated volunteer organization envisioned by the Geneva Conventions to assist the United States government in carrying out its treaty obligations. The treaties anticipate the existence of such an organization in each country bound by the treaties and authorize such organizations to make use of the name and emblem in carrying out the humanitarian activities for which they are established.

As the previous question and answer point out, U.S. prohibitions against the use of the emblem and name come from the federal criminal code. The prohibitions have nothing whatever to do with copyright or trademark law.

That is a great idea in theory, however nearly impossible in pratice, for example in some countries art with blood in it is illegal.

That art would fall under fair use "Fair use occurs when a descriptive mark is used in good faith for its primary, rather than secondary, meaning, and no consumer confusion is likely to result."

I dont know if its compressed or not however bmp is also uncompressed but it makes sence to allow it and i see no downside to allowing xpm, ideally in my opinion OGA would allow all formats except for some (.exe for example) however thats not possible with the current site design.

xpm should be an allowed format now

The issues was we are trying to see why its -not- infringing, rather then trying to see how it -could- be infringing, that is the problem.
