  • Copyright for font

    not sure if this is an appropriate question but is it possible to copyright a font that you have invented?

    not do you go about it if it were possible?

    Copyright exists from the moment of it coming into existence. If you developed it it's yours. You don't need to register for copyright to put a copyright symbol on it.

    You would need to come up with licensing and I don't know how that's done? <b> on here I think made a font before? Perhaps he'll chime in?

      You can't copyright the alphabet.
      You can only copyright the specific code that makes up your font, for which you need to come up with usage licensing.
      You do need to register it before you ever need to go to court for infringement.

          as i know that you cannot copyright the design of the font, but you CAN copyright the PostScript program or TrueType data that draws it.

            If your logo is what you have shown in the subway poster, the reason I ask how your logo is illuminated is because those skinny letter strokes and serifs at the size you have indicated on your wall (in...

            Hey I'm in Kansas City too! What do you think about the Chiefs taking a Maholmes last night in the draft? Pretty crazy that it's been so long since they've drafted a first round QB, but I love the mo...

            Don't ever assume you are too small an entity to be noticed by copyright holders. I do a lot of image work. More than once I've had image owners tell me they are in the process of doing reverse searches...
