I have created a logo using the "chalkduster" font. This font is part of the Snow Leopard system fonts. Where do I purchase this font for licensing?

mac pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    fonty --
    Welcome to Apple Discussions!

    (My name is Bee and I am a fontaholic . . . )

    This question has been brought up before by conscientious designers like yourself,
    and I believe that if a font comes as a System Font with a Mac OS, is it now in the
    public domain. I usually pay close attention to all matter fontish, and I'm pretty
    sure I'm correct. Stay tuned.

    Many years ago, when the Mac was new, I made a series of music fonts so that you could type a musical score in a word processor. Font Editor was the only font maker and it did not do kerning, so I used Fedit, a disk editor, to make zero width characters by editing the font file. Times have changed!

    Boy, Hardy . . .
    I always thought you were a kindred spirit!
    I remember, "Insert the Disk."
    Music fonts. What a wonderful concept!

    It never went far. The ImagerWriter driver for the wide carriage ImageWritter made a mess out of things. Zero width strings would not print and that meant many notes in a cord would be deleted. Also I was using different font sizes for different note durations and the LaserWriter scaled from the largest point size which made a mess.
