ABOUT







Laurie G. Bazarian

Assistant General Counsel at Bitstream in Cambridge, MA. In 2000, she started sending emails to site owners about Bitstream fonts on their web sites, based on information contained in my pages. Now, how again did Bitstream start its font collection? And are they not hiring technicians to modify fonts from other foundries and release them as Bitstream fonts? A typical Bazarian letter is quite polite actually. It goes as follows: "It has come to our attention that you have offered for free the font, (fill in any name), to a requester at the alt.binaries.font newsgroup. Please be advised that (fill in any name) is a font which is proprietary to Bitstream Inc. All Bitstream Inc. fonts, which have the letters "BT" at the end of the font menu name, require a valid license for use. To use a Bitstream Inc. font, a user must license the font, which may be done directly from Bitstream Inc. by contacting our sales department at 1-800-522-3668 (US only) or 1-617-497-6222 or by visiting our Website at www.bitstream.com. Kindly cease immediately posting or providing any Bitstream Inc. fonts. In the future, copyright notices for fonts should always be checked to ensure that you do not violate a valid copyright. As you can imagine, we are attempting to halt all free downloads of our fonts in order to protect our rights to these copyrighted fonts. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. If you have any questions regarding the foregoing, please do not hesitate to contact me at lbazarian@bitstream.com. Sincerely, Laurie G. Bazarian, Assistant General Counsel, Bitstream Inc., 215 First Street, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA."
