FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

ABOUT







David Glenn (again)

On alt.binaries.fonts, people often ask where they can find a certain font for free. Those who reply are often harassed off-line. One of these overactive watchdogs is David Glenn (Microsoft Typography) who wrote Paul Sullivan recently: " Hi Paul, This is in response to your reply to someone looking for Lucida Calligraphy. The Lucida family is not freeware. The Lucidas were designed by Chuck Bigelow and Kris Holmes. The fonts are sold through various foundries and products. Pointing people to alt.binaries.fonts will just keep the pirates posting. If a font is shareware or free then it's just as easy to point them at a search engine. If the font is a commercial font, the search engine will tell them that as well. It still provides the user with a font or a pointer to it but it doesn't promote piracy."
