Precision Type Folds

The font vendor Precision Type folded in 2004 and blamed it on "free font software on the internet". A discussion at Typophile focuses on other culprits. Here is Nick Shinn's list:

  • Free fonts: bundled with applications (Adobe)
  • Free fonts: with operating sytems (Apple, Microsoft)
  • Free fonts: Freefonts.com, etc.
  • Cheap font collections: Adobe, Bitstream, Corel
  • Pirated fonts: online p2p
  • Pirated fonts: b2b
  • Online competition: mega-stores (Myfonts, Fonts.com)
  • Online competition: proliferation of online foundries and distributors
  • Competition in general: eg Veer's DM + online
  • Product selection.
