Moulinsart own the Tintin font; according to their Rules Concerning the Use of the Work of Herge on the Internet[/url]*, AKA the Charter, the font is protected by copyright:A. The Work and the rights of Hergé and his legal successors
1. Moulinsart S.A. (162 avenue Louise, 1050 Brussels, Belgium) is the exclusive worldwide owner of all exploitation rights related to the work of Hergé, particularly but not limited to The Adventures of Tintin. Copyright protects not only the comic albums and the drawings (cases, strips, plates, extra-textual drawings, covers), script ("scenario"), texts, dialogues and gags, but also the settings, the characters and their particularities, the names, titles and imaginary places, onomatopoeia, fonts and other elements of the work of Hergé.
So, I am awfully sorry to have to edit/remove some of the posts in this thread, particularly those containing directions to where to download the 'unauthorized' fonts), because we cannot afford to be accused of encouraging 'unauthorized exploitation of Tintin' by the paranoid M-you-know-who, not for the second time. We are on their blacklist: once upon a time, when we were young and free, we made available fan-created Tintin fun stuff on our old site, goodies such as screensavers, desktop themes, fonts, and etc. But M-you-know-who kicked up a huge stink about it, and got their legal team to send us a nasty-gramme. We do not want to go there again. Public
discussions on where to download full version games, complete albums, screensavers, and etc, will not be permitted here; debates on what Moulinsart can claim the right over, however, are fine--and even encouraged!
