Why do people often refer to OPTI fonts as pirated fonts? Or clones? How are these fonts different from Fontsite or Softmaker that appear to be copies as well? I purchased many OPTI fonts back in the early 1990s from catalogs.
Fontsite and Softmaker fonts are sold through Monotype websites so if they had an issue they would probably not do so.
I have no beef with Fontsite or Softmaker. I purchased fonts from them too.
Now days I try to stick to Adobe Fonts or purchase licenses from MyFonts.
