Two font libraries of freeware fonts from old CDROMS. Most of these fonts are incomplete as far as glyphs go.  They were purchased on freeware discs and are uploaded here for your pleasure. I only kept the TrueType versions and not the adobe fonts (sorry Mac users). I do have other collections from old applications but I am not sure of the legality of sharing those so I will avoid doing so.

You should probably remove these.

The font library, Fontlibrary1222.zip, are a set of fonts that were stolen back in the day:

SSi was a notorious thief, among other things.

The url points to a bogus url. Please provide a current, proper url to urw's free fonts.

Please remove the other download links in the meantime.

Besides copyright issues (by the way: in legal terms "use" is different from "distribution"):

What is the sense of your various Freefont threads in the forum? Everyone can search webwide + find + download from many sites. Usually with more choice than from your personal selection. – Imagine every user would upload her/his font library to the forum? ... or even zips of any locally stored image folders?

Never stop trying to be helpful that's what makes good forums.

Just be careful what you upload.

Copyright is a bitch


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.
