Re: Digital Caslon



Jennifer Zignone's response was totally correct, and although the
person she wrote to was probably innocently intended, the fact is
that a number of lawsuits have been properly brought to protect the
property of the designer and the firm which invested in the
digitizing and made it available to the public. There will be more.
But the reason for not giving away or "lending" fonts is more of a
moral one than just not getting caught doing it. The fact that it is
far easier to steal an electronic file than carry off the Mona Lisa
is not merely the difference in value, it's really the same thing.
