I'm about to start a little personnal pixel font project and I cannot help but wonder:
Because of their nature, how can one make sure their pixel font hasn't already been done by someone else (even if they start from scratch)?
Only talking about small sizes that is.
And if it has been already created,
-What happens if both people can prove they initially created it from scratch?
-Does the earlier one prevail?
-Is there other ways of telling them apart (is one supposed to design bigger sizes included with it so we can distinguish them?)
-Or, in a more drastic manner, should we keep ourselves from designing things that are very "standard" to make sure each is different?
Feel free to add of your own.
