Xavier Dupré versus John Downer

An on-line quarrel between young French designer Xavier Dupré and old hand John Downer. A quick summary: John Downer makes an example of Xavier Dupré and accuses him of designing his fonts too closely to existing typefaces (I'll be perfectly clear. Xavier Dupré is becoming a sponge). Others argue that one can't patent a serif or a certain style, and that after all, we are standing on the shoulders of giants.
