Question: How much has a font to be different from another to not run into license troubles?
Background: I'd like to use a specific font in my application but there is a pricetag problem. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem paying for others good work, but 12.000€/year is too much. Gross that up to 20 years... Justin Bieber has to sell off Madison Square Garden for that. Ridiculous.
Anyways, thanks to github the font happens to be in my download folder. I thought, what about opening it up in a font editor, adapt it to my liking (there are some characters that I'd like to change a bit anyways) and for the rest, maybe change a few bendings. Do you think I get through with that?
