New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm working on putting together a law review comment topic that will focus on the IP protections afforded to typeface design within various American IP regimes.
If we take it as a given that type design enjoys comparatively little protection in the US (or that these protections are rarely invoked), I'd like your input on the following question:
Is type design prospering anyway? Or is the field arguably a fraction as explosive as it would be were the supposed incentives to create better protected?
