ABOUT







FontUse Integrity

Group of three people who sent email messages around the beginning of 1999 to many people, and who signed their messages as follows: Font Police, The Self-Appointed Champions (we are three) of Integrity and Fairness in the Use of Fonts. They were visiting many web sites that offered free fonts, and sent incorrect and unpleasant messages asking people to remove fonts. In a recent case that was mentioned on alt.binaries.fonts, they asked CybaPee to remove a font called Cupertino, which (according to them) "is a copyrighted font requiring purchase from the foundry". It turned out that there was no copyright notice in the font, and that it was shareware by A.W. Beck. They asked to remove the fonts "in honor of the artist(s) which work so hard to create fonts". Has it occurred to them that some designers would be proud to have their fonts displayed and passed on? Read about the details.
