Seems to me similar to the Font Bureau deal, dissimilar to the Colophon deal

    Hmm. Maybe when I am calculating pricing to release fonts under OFL I should be factoring in the lost sale to Monotype income. :#

    One can offer OFL licensing at any price but one still needs to realize the price in the marketplace. Things are bought, not sold.

    Things are also not sold in the sense of ‘No, you can’t have it at that price’. :)

    That's what I mean by unrealized pricing innit
