FONT RECOGNITION VIA FONT MOOSE

LUC DEVROYE


ABOUT







MyFont.com

As far as we can reconstruct, Linotype bought the MyFont.com domain name in April 2005 (see here), in all likelihood to mimic outfits like Agfa to redirect web traffic to Linotype. Shame on them for using the name MyFont.com. The real MyFonts.com probably complained, but we are not sure about that. In any case, this sure looks like a panicky move considering the success of MyFonts.com. No, sleazy is the word: this is the same company that protects the trademark Helvetica against names such as HelvAssim, but it sees no problem in the name MyFont.com when MyFonts.com exists. After pointing this out in 2005, we are astonished to note that in November 2007, the link MyFont.com has not been removed.
