I’m being sued????

Received my very first “Cease & Desist” order today.

Monotype Typography is threatening Your CyberPal with legal action if I don’t remove a list of their fonts from my font site.

Well hey, I’m not looking for trouble or anything…as you read this…

  • Binner Gothic
  • Bookman Old Style
  • Centaur
  • Gill Sans
  • Mead MT
  • Monotype Corsiva
  • News Gothic
  • Nimrod
  • Onyx
  • Old English Text MT
  • Perpetua
  • Impact
Have all been removed from my site today.

An honest mistake on my part. These were on floppy disk when I copied my entire C:\WINDOWS\fonts folder. I had assumed that they were part of the fonts that came with Windows ’95. They may possibly be from my pre-installed Lotus Smart Suite.

Oh well live and learn. I faced legal action if these fonts were not removed by March 4th. A letter of apology is on it’s way to Monotype (who even enclosed copies of their registration certificates.)

I offer this warning to those who offer these fonts on their font site….

I have seen ZDNET offer “Impact” a number of times, which leaves me more clueless than usual…

I guess they’re just gonna mess with the little guys, huh?


However, speaking of fonts…I released my first original font today EG1 Hover
