Linotype versus Iconbar

Linotype forces Harry Decker's Font Emporium to fold under a 25,000 Euro legal threat. Steinert's reign of terror continues. The RISC OS News site reports: The RISC OS forum and resources website, Iconbar has withdrawn its fonts sub-site following a legal threat. Harry Decker's Font Emporium contained thousands of RISC OS fonts and was available for free download in the form of a 300MB archive from fonts.iconbar.com. However, the site's webmaster has claimed that a recent legal threat from Germany has demanded nearly 25,000 Euros in fines, as some of the fonts in the archive allegedly bear an uncanny resemblance to those found in the LinoType library. NoughtPointOne supremo Richard Goodwin, who hosted the sub-site, said he was forced to remove it all following silence from Harry. He added, "It's had a good run, but I'm certainly not going to risk getting sued for such hefty damages. Everything else I've helped build up over the years would be put at risk." The fonts sub-site was last updated in 2003, and we understand that it is unlikely to return.
