Its hard to comprehend why someone would spend so much time creating a new typeface when "The United States is one of the few, if not only, industrialized nations in the world that does not extend copyright protection to typeface designs." Almost everything else I can think of has copyright protection, so why not typeface design. As stated in the article, typefaces are expressions of an idea. "And as expressions of an idea, they constitute orginal works of authorship." Its sad to say, but like we have discussed before, morals and values are thrown out when money is involved. Some companies dont care who they rip off as long as their making money.
