Of course. Every designer of any font here or somewhere else holds the copyright on his/her creation. Read the convention of Berne papers.
Not without permission of the designer. You will need that permission in writing.
I can't find the contact info for the designer of one of the fonts I would like to license for commercial use. When file is downloaded, Copyright file info says "It's the font on the dollar bill!"
Am I overlooking a link to contact the font designer when their name is clicked on a font page? When I click the designer's name, all I get is a list of the fonts they have submitted. No way to contact?
I am in favour of following copyright procedures. But on topic of dafont.com if the fonts are free download is the copyright still there to stop re-production of the font on commercial products (like tshirts)
Also do you consider signatures for forums to be under the terms of fair use or should I get font creators permission to use the fonts ?
Uhhh.....yeah....thanks for the suggestion but.....no.
This info is not for you as we have no clue what font you are talking about. Always handy to carefully hide the essential info needed to be able to help.
You've just downloaded a T Y P E A R O U N D F O N T ! Yay!

Stephen Deken closed typearound in february 2002. His farewell: "It's been too long since I made a new font, and all I ever got from it was spam. Perhaps one day it will come back, but I wouldn't hold your breath."
Sadly, all links shown here are now defunct.
Thanks, koeiekat. Out of curiosity, where did you fine that info? There was no readme or other info included when I downloaded and installed the font. Do you happen to have updated contact info for them? Thanks again.

UnitedStates here on dafont lacks the readme file, alas. Yet, it is commonly known - or easy to find - that Stephen Deken and Isabelle Trolio ran typearound. So just try another older typearound font. Most of them here on dafont have the readme file.
No current contact info known.

Changed, thank you
Isabelle Trolio aka Solar Sister maybe the Isabelle Trolio running Ruck Rover Gerneral Store
. Maybe she still has a contact for Stephen Deken. I can be totally wrong of course but as Solar Sister she was known to be from Mount Lawley (Perth), West Australia, same place where her store is ...
