An Approach to Why Typography Should be Copyrightable

Phares, Gloria C.

Thank you. I’m not going to talk about anything that’s nearly as sexy as tattoos. I want to thank all the organizers and staff for their hard work and for including me in what has turned out to be an extremely interesting day. June earlier said that this panel is concerned with the scope of protection, and I am here to talk about typefaces, which, in the United States, unlike most of the rest of the world, have no copyright protection at all. With the exception, in a way, of the fact that the computer programs that produce digitized typefaces are protected by copyright, although the typefaces that they produce are not.
