Fonts Created From Writings Of Famous Icons Had To Shut Down Due To Legal Issues
By Izza Sofia, 15 Apr 2018
Songwriters Fonts recently launched a free font library where users can download fonts that digitizes handwritings of famous musicians like John Lennon and Kurt Cobain for their personal use.
The project was launched by copywriter Julien Sans and graphic designer Nicolas Damiens. However, the project reached an “unexpected success” and has been instructed to close it down due to legal issues.
Damiens and Sans wrote on their website, “We’ve launched the Songwriters Fonts project, a series of typefaces created from famous songwriters’ handwritings, as a design project. The unique purpose of this was to inspire musicians and the next generation of songwriters to put their imagination at work.”
After receiving a tremendous amount of responses, they then continued saying that they have “been contacted by intellectual property rights owners, and are sad to announce that we have shut down this website because of legal issues. We’re sorry to have to say goodbye.”
