Re: Downloadable fonts and image replacement

> Why are fonts so different from other types of files?

Basically because they are re-usable in so many different documents, and
it is relatively difficult for the copyright owner to catch people 
misusing them.  Also, font formats largely pre-dated serious DRM
technology so are more difficult to protect than, say, MP3s.
