Novice question ... Is it kosher to ask for a certain font to be sent to me if it really should be purchased?
Does anyone ever trade or email fonts to others?
No, it isn't OK.
Don't know how you make your living--and don't need to know--but whatever it is, think about someone in some way reducing your income. Enough people do that and it begins to hurt financially.
That aside from the ethics of it.
Best regards, Mike
No, it's not kosher.
If the font is not distributed by the copyright holder for free you are breaking the law to share it.
Thank you. Thats why I ask.
