Comment Re:Creative expression not always copyrightable (Score 1) 206

I believe this particular nuance of copyright law is the case only in the U.S.; I've seen articles by font designers lamenting the fact. (Of course, I've seen articles by font designer Chank Diesel cheering the fact, so who knows what the profession as a whole thinks?)

So in Europe, as far as I know, both a font's design and its code can be protected by copyright.
