ABOUT







David Glenn

David Glenn is in Microsoft Typography's program manager. He often posts on alt.binaries.fonts, and his messages/replies are typically like this post of his: " Why don't you just buy the fonts? Sometimes fonts come with programs so you can upgrade and get the fonts. They are legal copies and the foundry won't get ripped off. If you want the font bad enough to use it, support the maker or distributor." While this is a perfectly good idea, it is wrong to think that paying for a font supports a font maker. It supports the distributor, yes. But I would rather like to pay the farmer directly. Many type designer I know feel totally ripped off by the distributors, vendors, or major font companies. One I know was sure that the vendor sold at least 25 copies one year, but got only paid for two. How can she check?
