Protection

Is it possible to protect a typeface design?

What stops people reselling your work with only minor changes?

Also, what is the differnce between the name of your typeface and the actual outlines as far as protection is concerned?

...relates to your 2nd point as Adobe had some legal success against a company that opened up their font files, tweaked the outlines (in this case scaled them) and resaved the results.
