I'm new to typophile but I was curious whether there were any typeface designers out there who have opinions on the copyright law surrounding typefaces. The following are some questions I thought might propel the discussion:
Firstly, as you see it, do you feel well protected by the copyright law concerning typeface design?
What do you see as the main flaws of the way the law works to protect you as a designer?
Do you feel the main problem to be piracy or plagiarism?
Why do you feel so many people are willing to appropriate typefaces without the artist/designer's permission?
How do you feel would be the best way to resolve this ongoing problem? Does it come from a change in legislation, or an attempt to change people's attitudes...?
Thanks for your time guys and gals.
