JasonArthur  Dec 18, 2008
Wow. This font is a direct glyph-by-glyph swipe of a COPYWRITTEN font called URW Polonaise which is a pay font. It is NOT in the public domain and anyone that uses this font for commercial purposes should do so at their own risk (as you may face copyright infringement charges from URW++

To the people asking if you can use this font commercially, if you're going to send money for this font, please send it to the actual designer. As someone noted above, Chopin is a knock-off of "Polonaise" made by the URW foundry. It only costs $21 for unlimited commercial use of the real Polonaise font. Let's support and encourage the artists who do wonderful work like this.

Very nice font
i had compare with URW Polonaise and maybe the two authors had same idea and inspiration but the fonts are differents
The URW Polonaise seems better for big letters and have more glyphs
So don't be afraid to use these two fonts : similar but different
Thanks Claude

First of all: Thanks for the work you do! You are creating beautiful fonts! I´d like to use them (Prophecy Script and My Underwood) to make some stamps and use these to do some craft. And i´d like to sell the stamps too. Would this be ok? Or can i buy a special license to do so?
kind regards

romeaDesigns  Jan 10, 2012
Oooups, sorry not "Prophecy Script and My Underwood" but "Chopin Script"
valmooo  Feb 03, 2012
It doesn't look at all like Chopin's handwriting

And is a copyright infringement of the font mentioned above.
Due to the lack of a clear license, I think other Diogene's fonts are copyright infringements too.
claudeserieux  author of Chopin Script   Feb 03, 2012
valmoo , tu parle à travers ton chapeau.
frd  Feb 03, 2012
Valmooo, do you even know what you're talking about ? I guess not. You compared pictures ?? Come oooooon, you should know better. You don't find differences by looking at pictures for a font, you take a look at the dots, the lines, etc. THEN you will notice that Chopin Script and Polonaise are two different fonts. Period. Typography was here way before computers. So, let me tell you : If two persons take one typography in, let's say, the Solotype Catalog, make a font, which WILL BE of course different, because they would have to "redraw" it entirely, is this a problem to you ? If two people paint the same landscape, is there also copyright infringement ? You should really know your subject before making a fool out of you here.
valmooo  Feb 05, 2012
If someone takes a commercial font and alter some lines and nodes of the glyphs to make it slightly different, the product is considered an original work? And then, this person thinks is a good designer? xP
claudeserieux  author of Chopin Script   Feb 05, 2012
Chopin script est fait à partir de l'original papier et je fais des choix. Et URW a aussi utiliser la version papier pour faire leur version.
frd  Feb 06, 2012
Valmooo, there was a time, decades ago, when typefaces were only in BOOKS. Then people took the time to turn this into a font from SCANS or IMAGES. Some did this for free, others did it for money, welcome on the Internet. If you don't know the difference, we can't help you. Chopin Script is NOT a rip-off from Polonaise, it is not even BASED on the same file, period. Check the glyphs, they are DIFFERENT. At least take the time to read my answer, stupid. They come from the same typeface, but are two DIFFERENT CREATIONS. Get a life and stop talking shit around here.

kirksucks  Oct 14, 2012
no, say whatever you want about subtle differences, its friggin Polonaise. if it's not an exact copy, its a copy nonetheless. and for it to be getting so much adoration here isnt fair to the creators of Polonaise. Also, for how original you keep saying it is, the fact remains, downloading this font for free here, is taking money out of the hands of the owner of Polonaise. and that's exactly why copyrights exist.
Chileno#1  Oct 21, 2012
Hey, i likes this a lot. Really elegant and unique. Actually I liked this so much that in august I got my grandmas name tattooed on my body. And it really means a lot to me. And now I want to get my grandpas name tattooed with the same style. Is it ok for you? Big up! 👍👍👌

I'm sure you changed it up some. Still should support the original artist if it's being used commercially.

La version URW a été fait par FontBank.
Tandis que ma version est basé sur celle que l'on trouve dans les livres de Dan X Solo.

Ok I looked it up and you do take the time to defend it. I appreciate the font. Thank you.
Miss_R0R0  Dec 19, 2012
They are not the same as Polonaise. Anyone with a trained eye in "which one of these is not like the other" would see they are not the same. So stop getting on here and complaining about it being free. If you are so gunho about paying for fonts, then why the h3ll are you on here???
SpaceOctopus  Dec 24, 2012
If this were actually a rip off, I'm sure that A. site moderators would have removed it and B. The original creator would have done something about it.

stewf  Aug 24, 2021
For those who can’t read the author’s French comments above, this Chopin Script is “based on Polonaise from Phil Martin (1923-2005)”, as stated in the font copyright info. This version by Claude Pelletier — first distributed all the way back in 1999 when it was called Diogene — was derived from a sample in a Solotype book: Unfortunately, Pelletier does not state this clearly on the dafont page itself.

Polonaise was issued by Martin’s Alphabet Innovations in 1977 and digitized by URW++, which is currently available for commercial licensing on MyFonts:

Dieter Steffmann also digitized Solotype’s Chopin Script.

Of the three digital versions, Pelletier’s (this one on dafont) is the most complete, containing most of the original’s alternate swash glyphs.

While Martin is often credited as the designer of the fonts released by his companies, that is not always the case, as he often copied existing designs or failed to credit the designers of his labels’ original designs. So, the origin of this typeface is still uncertain.
stewf  Aug 24, 2021
Oops, small correction: Claude’s initial font was not called Diogene; that was how he signed his name. Sorry!

Claude just reminded me that Phil Martin’s website (now saved by the Internet Archive) has the creation story for Polonaise. It was apparently drawn primarily by Martin’s assistant George Brian based on chapter titling by an unnamed Swedish lettering artist. This seems to be a plausible origin, as that was a similar story for other Alphabet Innovations designs. Now I’ll do my best to hunt down that original letterer.
