Emigre vs KatGyrl

The font policeman at Emigre is Tim Starback, so watch out. Starback harasses people who post their fonts on alt.binaries.fonts in a very unpleasant manner using threats, subpoenas, psychological pressure and chilling lawyer-talk (just check some recent posts on alt.binaries.fonts). KatGyrl, who runs a nice font site, wrote on May 25, 1998: All i know is the people at emigre are stark raving mad... they've threatened to sue me twice over the last year&i'd never even heard of them or had one of their fonts on my hard drive or font site... when i asked them to tell me exactly what the name of the font(s) in question was they refused to respond. Personally after being harassed by these twits i wish them the worst... and it bares mentioning that after looking over their font catalogue i was highly insulted that anyone would assume my needs would be satisfied by such pallid&commonplace designs. Hmmph.
