The font companies donít help about fonts with its attitude so far. Microsoft gives reasonably secure Internet font embedding technology in Internet Explorer but many font companies don't allow their fonts to be used in this way because of fear about the risk to their IP of fonts being used on the Web. We kept it a proprietary Microsoft format as an alternative of opening it up as a Web standard.

Your business will lead to dark and risky side while making proposal for ďRaw fonts on a server". If they did not be in opposition to this measure and adopt and support a reasonable alternative, they might find that they ended up in the worst of all possible worlds, in which fonts become free.

Many people pirating the new fonts when a stranger post a new font on a server they have download it and use it anyway on their system. So the stranger introduce the new technology to put obstacles for avoiding their pirates i.e., Embedded Open Type (EOT)

In ancient times, printing and publishing is a process of communication between font designers and their customers. It is a quaint thought in past but it still worked out. But as days rolled over, this thought is turned into wrong. Now a dayís technology has so much improved after the evolution of web, internet and email. So everyone can become a publisher. By knowing, how to pick the potential customers font industry can get huge hit.

Newly released web fonts needs to be used for print. For example, if anyone as a font designer of a magazine, he can purchase an authorized font for printing and uses this font. The reader gets no right to use these fonts anyway. The readers want to use these fonts, if the magazine should sell millions of copies.

The online users should not have any rights to use an authorized fonts or designers own fonts on their own system. They have able to read only specified matters. They are not able to use these fonts to any other documents or other works. If they want to use these fonts they will get from original designers.

Nowadays, any one canít access these legal fonts to their own system. The EOT functions used to avoid embedding a font in a web page. The visitors use these fonts if the designer of a font gives a copy of that font on their own machine. That's the issue EOT embedding was designed to address.

The publishers move to be a way of leveraging the needs of a billion publishers into a decent return on investment. High volume, low cost is the business model on which Microsoft was founded, and we haven't done so badly. Maybe the font industry needs to take a leaf out of that book.
