Nice font though, and a good idea to create that, thanks.
I am well aware that PaymentFont is far from complete, so please feel free and contribute:
So for example, if I took Hacker News' Y but used it to link to Hacker News itself, that may not be a trademark violation as I am not either hurting the brand's reputation or misleading people into thinking an association exists with the brand.
But ultimately it is up to a judge to decide what is or is not allowed. And you definitely don't want to take the "the ride" to find out that what you're doing is legal, it could still cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
> Fair use may be asserted on two grounds, either that the alleged infringer is using the mark to describe accurately an aspect of its products, or that the alleged infringer is using the mark to identify the mark owner.
Anyhow there are some who contacted me right away to thank me or to ask themselves to be included in PaymentFont.
I see that trademark/copyright thing quite pragmatical. If one accepts a certain payment method or uses a certain payment operator/service, they will anyway put a sticker in their shop window or a logo on their website.
If that happens in good will and context, why should the trademark holder sue you for that? Isn't that actually what they want people to do?
Seems odd to me to just complain about missing operators, assuming one could know every single one on the earth...
A great extension would be to have font symbols which represent parts of each symbol which are different colors, and then overlap them so they produce a colored logo -- and provide the CSS classes that will produce them.
Compare to the original:
SVGs and/or Icon fonts are vector and scalable.
Specially taking into account that most places will use only a few of these icons.
No difference on 37. They just look terrible. http://i.imgur.com/exrS0u9.png
EDIT: Wow, looks like turning ClearType OFF makes the font icons look much better: http://i.imgur.com/dwwagZN.png
Neither my laptop nor my desktop suffer this issue with Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc.
What fork of firefox is that? I don't recognise the taskbar icon. Does the problem still happen with upstream firefox?
