Technical Legal Questions Regarding Font Modification

01/03/2015 a las 19:55

Say I use a Font that doesn't have permission to be used commercially, and in some cases has to be paid for or isn't available at all.

Say I put them in a Vector software and convert it to curves and modify the font heavily where it's no longer recognizable as the original font, does the new font count as my creation even though I'm working off of the base of the original one that isn't mine?


And at what point is there enough modification to count it exclusively as your own creation? What if you create a font from scratch using a font creation software and by some small slim chance, someone out there has a font a bit similar to yours? What then?


Thanks.

Most font licenses - and certainly commercial fonts - prohibit modification. Be it a little or a lot. Why do you think WSI, SSI BAY Animation and so disappeared? So don't. It only counts as your own creation when you actually designed the letter shapes yourself and make sure you have a paper trail of the design process. If then there are similarities, clear similarities, with an existing font you have proof that you started from scratch.

You don't ever have the right to modify the vectors in someone else' font to create a new one of your own, no matter how different yours might be. If you want to make your own variation od someone else' font, print and scan text samples, make new vectors, and modify them, but don't alter an existing font.

You can't sprinkle parsley flakes on KFC, and pretend it's your fried chicken recipe. What you're suggesting is legally no different than that.
