David Earls on Chank

David Earls hit the roof when Chank started offering a handwriting font service at 95USD. Here are his words: "Pay Chank to help him make money. This, as they say, is a bit of a cheek. Earlier this week I, and a few other typo news sites, reported on Chank's latest wheeze - give him $94.99 and he will lovingly craft you a font from your own handwriting. Well, here's the small print for you, as reproduced from the bottom of the submission form in, what, 3pt or something: "By submitting your handwriting and this form to The Chank Company, you agree that The Chank Company shall retain all rights to the digital typeface we create for you from your handwriting. Those rights include the right to reproduce and sell or freely distribute copies of software containing the typeface we create from your handwriting. In the event that we decide to distribute a font based on your handwriting we will not use your name or likeness without your permission."
