    Is It Legal To Use This Font For A Commission?

    I'm working on a business card commission for a friend who's a freelance writer. I wanted to use a type writer styled font and decided to use a font called American Typewriter.

    I'm aware that even if a font is free it could still be copy righted and decided to do some research on Google to see if it was safe to use but couldn't find anything other then the history of the font.

    Does anyone know if it's safe to use the font for a commission?

    Fonts can't be copyrighted, since the 70's. it would be so crazy if you could copyright variations on the English alphabet!!!!!

    One may copyright trademarks such as Microsoft (arial black)

    but not fonts! Isn't that great?
