Very naive view, Chang. "Just stop using that font"? Eh, if I'm a
designer, and I'm using Scribus to do DTP, I don't think I'm just going
to change my font in the middle of production. Either that, or risk my
clients material being GPLed

Clearly you haven't done any DTP work before. Please ask Ow how
interesting it is for him to handle the MyOSS Magazine

Please also do tell us how the "GPL is not tat powerful" :)
