I'm creating a logo design for a franchise I'm developing. To start it'll probably just be a webcomic, but eventually I'd like to take it commercially. I'd only use it in the logo, but I believe it still counts as commercial usage.
Originally I went with a different font, but it was too hard to read. After looking around a while, I found a font called Kaneiwa:
It looked impressive, and the site says its free to use commercially, so I figured it'd be fine. That's when I found this:
Unlike on font space, this one says free for PERSONAL use. I didn't think it was too big of a deal, though, I'd just contact the author and have him sort it out. Except that his email address is invalid, his website is gone, and I can't find any other method of communication.
I've found this font listed all across the internet. Some sites say its free for personal use, others say its flat-out freeware. Does anyone know what it ACTUALLY is? I'd really like to use it, but I don't want to get into legal trouble by doing so. I haven't found another font that would make a good replacement yet.
If anyone can help clarify this to me that would be great.
