I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but it seemed related.
I was asked about a font by our licensing department today by the name of CAC Pinafore. I looked all over our fon servers and found nothing. I looked it up on the web and several free font sites had it listed and by American Greetings (my employer). We don't give out our fonts. I enquired in-house a little further and found a list of licensed use only fonts with the CAC prefix. These are versions made especially for use with a particular client. Apparantly someone got copies of these fonts and just downloaded them to Free Sites.
None of the free sites seemed to offer links to the originators and the zip file only contained the font and no read me file. I don't really have time to keep chasing this down as its not really part of my job, but I am curious if any of these free sites keep records of who uploaded the fonts to begin with. Has anyone else pursued this type of thing before.
