    Don't laugh too hard. I designed a font that teaches the
    alphabet to children. Back in 1984, I got a letter from a
    big publishing company that said my font infringed on their
    copyright because teachers could now re-create the same
    pages they had in their books using "letters and numbers".
    They said they had copyrighted the printed alphabet as we
    currently draw it...

    I had to spend some money to fight it, but I won. (obviously)

    The point is, I HAD to spend money for an attorney, etc.
    The publishing company was betting I wouldn't go to the trouble
    of fighting... (or couldn't afford to fight). It was a
    calculated risk, just like what SCO is doing with Linux, IBM, etc.
