I was trying to upload a GillSansMTPro-Book font to fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator
But I got this message
Monotype has requested that their font Gill Sans MT Pro Book be blacklisted by the Generator. You will not be able to convert this font.
But if you google "GillSansMTPro-Book" the first link you get is this which allows you to download the font for free.
- Why does Monotype disallow the conversion of a free font ?
- What if I buy a paid font - how will fontsquirrel 'know' that its a licensed one ? How can I convert that for web use ?
