Arlo's views on free fonts

"giving shit away, or having it pirated begats GROWTH in a lot of situations. Software companies like Id and Microsoft grew huge by having their shit pirated. What? stolen means they didn't get paid and it made them bigger? Yes. See, I installed my buddie's copy of Doom2.. and fell in love.. so I bought Quake, Quake2 and will do so again with Quake 3. Same deal with Corel Draw and Photoshop..... I feel that giving students and up and coming artists a "slightly illegal" copy of software or fonts, is actually good for your business. why? Because when they are professionals they will remember that shit, and "dance with the one that brung ya". Why is Photoshop the "big" graphics app when Corel's Photo Paint can hang with it and out do it in many ways for 1/4 or less the price? Loyalty. If Chank's stuff gets in the hands of someone now, they might end up the graphics director for MS, and make him rich... and besides, didn't he do fonts for Pepsico? I am sure they pay VERY well...."
