JBIG has at least the same patent problems as arithmetic-coded JPEG (patents owned by IBM, AT&T, and Mitsubishi, if memory serves) and may have some more all its own.

Do you mean to say that there are only *US* patents pertaining to JBIG,

No, I didn't mean to say that. I have no idea about the patent situation outside the US (especially not for JBIG, which is not my forte).
