Hello, Jérémy Landes here, long-term member of the Velvetyne Type Foundry and writing in the name of the collective.
We have been happy users of the Open Font License for more than 10 years now, releasing over 100 font families under it on our website: http://velvetyne.fr/
These fonts have been used, studied, modified (more and more), redistributed, credited or not, we are all fine with that and that what we are aiming for.
That being said, we always asked ourselves if we couldn’t experiment with our license. We aim to educate people and believe that we made a lot of graphic designers discover and understand what are open fonts and what is open source in general. We think that we could offer them another license and make it legible for them. Recent events made us actively want to change some terms of the OFL.
Reading your FAQ, we know that we can’t start from the OFL without asking you. We acknowledge the work you put in this license and wanted to ask you if we could use some parts of the OFL to build our own license, following your terms: making it specific, clearly different from the OFL and without naming SIL. If so, would you need or want to read the draft of our license?
I hope I haven’t written too much,
thanks again for this great tool that is the OFL,
hoping to hear you soon,
