Okay Jazzmine, I might have sounded a bit harsh, and I apologize for that. It was not my intention to lecture you or anybody else.
There are quite a few people that think that fonts and graphic elements and etc. are free for the taking. Sometimes they are, but some material is licensed. It’s by the paying of such fees that typographers make a living.
Not everyone understands that.
It’s similar to the shareware argument – I’ve known quite a few people who don’t bother to pay for what they use, on the grounds of “well, I downloaded it, it’s free.” Or “I borrowed it, so what?”
I know all too well what it’s like to work your very ass off on something and not be properly compensated for it, perhaps that makes me a little overzealous.
Finally, all the moderators and adminstrators on this board are more than a little nervous about the prospect of copyrighted/licensed material being flung around on the board in an illegal manner. Sites have been closed down by copyright holders, companies have been sued. We don’t want any trouble for the Reader or for Cecil; we want this site to stay in business.
For all these reasons, I jump really easily. But I did not intend any offense to you. And I apologize.
