my vectors are uploaded by some thief as part of this font..

http://www.dafont.com/zodiac-tfb.font

what is even more disgusting is that someone is asking permition to use the images and he says: it's fine!

http://www.dafont.com/forum/read/95684/question-about-font-usage

and the person who asked that question knows it's my image, and sends me an email to let me know they got the permition from the thief and they will use it..

oh, and here is my image:

Wow, that is just wrong. Hope you can put a stop to it.

This is indeed sad, a new kind of infringement, at least I have not seen it before.

I think dafont is a pretty reputable business, has been around a long time. They seem to be cognizant of IP issues. The infringer has 177 fonts on there. I would email dafont and notify them of the infringement and maybe they will remove all of the guy's fonts. That might serve as a deterrent to other fontographers doing the same sort of thing.

Take it to another level, thousands of images at once.
