  zlib is designed to be a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered -- that is,
  not covered by any patents -- lossless data-compression library for use on
  virtually any computer hardware and operating system. The zlib data format is
  itself portable across platforms. Unlike the LZW compression method used in Unix
  compress(1) and in the GIF image format, the compression method currently used
  in zlib essentially never expands the data. (LZW can double or triple the file
  size in extreme cases.) zlib's memory footprint is also independent of the input
  data and can be reduced, if necessary, at some cost in compression.
