New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
There's something I'm trying to wrap my head around, and not quite succeeding.
Many "free fonts" either:
1) Do not permit modifications, or
2) Require one to change the name if the font is modified
How does this interact with web font services like TypeKit and Kernest, which offer such fonts? Do we choose to believe that an EOT wrapper is not a modification? What about subsetting?
I'll note that fonts embedded in PDF are usually subsetted, but most fonts actually used in the world do not permit modifications in their license terms.
Comments welcome. I'm especially interested in the opinions of people who are licensing "free fonts" under such conditions.
