secure fonts

Post by hassan » Tue Sep 24, 2019 2:28 pm

Hi:


I am wondering if there is a way to close/lock/secure a font to prevent any modifications by others

I am using FontCreator 12

Thanks

There are no effective methods for protecting fonts unless you are willing to do so through the courts.

High-Logic should really come up with a practical solution for that.


Thanks for your reply.

I don't see how any practical solution could be found. If a font can be installed for legitimate use, it can be opened in any font editor and modified for illegal resale.
