FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

Len Charlap

On font posting in alt.binaries.fonts, Len wrote this piece as a reaction to another post: " 1. I would like to know how you reconcile this position with Monotype's production of Book Antiqua which is a very accurate copy of Hermann Zapf's Palatino. Millions (literally) of copies of this font have been distributed with various versions of Windows. Has Mr. Zapf been paid millions of dollars for his creative work in designing this font? 2. How many people have been convicted for posting a copyrighted font to a newsgroup? At least one lawyer has posted here saying that in his opinion such a conviction could not be obtained. If the statement about illegality is merely your opinion, say so. 3. Microsoft's site contains a number of fonts for free download that say they are copyrighted by Monotype. In your opinion, is it legal to download them? If so, how is one to distinguish between those copyrighted fonts which are legal to download and those which are not. "
