Subject: Re: PostScript font copying & copyrights
Two topics lately: (1) copyright and the importance of guarding the
intellectual rights of producers, and (2) techniques for obtaining
copyrighted font information for use on computers and printers for which
no license is purchased. I realize that different individuals are
writing the notes, but there seems to be a dichotomy in the attitudes
which some might take to express the attitudes of humanities computing
folk: OUR intellectual work must be protected, respected, and, if
possible profitable; commercial software theft on the other hand is to
be encouraged by broadcasting techniques for carrying it off.
