ABOUT







FDRC (Font Designer's Rights Coalition) [Janet Moore]

Stating that fonts are software, this site that is less than 300 words big, manages to use this vocabulary to make us all feel better: Interpol, piracy, software theft, FBI, federal prison, $250,000 fine, legal action, illegal, criminal. But the organization itself had to rent a web sirte by proxy, and the site will expire on December 6, 2009. Janet Moore from New York City is the self-proclaimed ring leader. I am not sure if she is a real person, but she clarifies: FDRC is a collective of foundries, individuals and others concerned that the DCMA laws that apply to commercial software are also being applied to fonts. We have an confidential advisory board that helps further our mission and I am the typeface behind the curtain. If you have any questions, would like to use our services or report a shared commercial font, please do not hestiate to contact me directly either by email janet@fdrc.org or clicking on the link on our site: piracy@fdrc.org.
