ABOUT







Tim Starback

We know the font business is in trouble when they need to hire dobermans like Starback. Tim guards the house, and sneaks up behind your back. If you look, he growls and scares the daylights out of you. He has a history of contacting website owners, newsgroup posters and internet providers with threatening lawyer talk. Here is a verbatim email message to a newsgroup manager (cc'ed to the SPA, the Software Publishers Association, and Emigre's legal department):

    Dear Bob,

    It has come to our attention that "frostmoth" has posted our commercial
    copyrighted software to your news server "newsp.newsguy.com".
    We are deeply concerned about the increase of software piracy on the
    internet and are vigorously protecting our copyrights. I would hope that
    you do not encourage or support the transfer of illegally copied software
    from your system.
    Would you please issue an immediate cancel of the posts below.
    Please send the users name, address and phone number to
    tstarback@emigre.com. If you require a subpoena please send me the
    mailing address it should be sent to.
    For proof of ownership please see the copyright notice contained in the
    font software or call me at 916-451-4344.
    Regards,
    Tim Starback
Tim, a graduate of Cal State in Sacramento, worked at Emigre from 1992-2004, and then, mercifully, left the font business world, and is since 2004 at Info Lounge Software, a social media developer.
