Typeface protection in the world [Uli Stiehl]

Uli Stiehl shows that typefaces are not protected by copyright law in Albania, and claims that probably, the same holds for most of the 163 signatories of the Berne Convention. He is upset by the statement Type designers the world over enjoy legal protection for their typefacesexcept those working in the United States found on the web site of TypeRight, and by this: The fact that copyright laws in most developed countries provide protection for the typeface designer further calls the U.S. position into question (found on TypeRight's petition). According to him, both statements are incorrect. To their detriment, the typophiles react by ridiculing Stiehl.
