The Hoefler Text font, is free?

I'm a little confused, I've seen that the Hoefler font can be downloaded from various free font sites but I've also seen that some Hoefler Text fonts are sold. So, is or not free? Can anyone give me an answer?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi RbnJrg,

My understanding is: if you want to use the font commercially, you have to pay for it, otherwise for a personal use it doesn't matter (as for Georgia or Times New Roman).

But you know, I'm far from being an american attorney.

I guess you have found this link (if you want to buy): http://www.typography.com/fonts/font...010&cpuCount=1 ($199 for 12 styles, one cpu, one workstation).

Thanks for the answer Arios, and yes, you guessed well; I found the site you're indicating

Nope.

Hoefler Text is not free.

You can of course find The Hoefler Text fonts and just about every other font for download on the web somewhere. That does not mean it is legal.

For fonts that are similar to Hoefler Text that are free, see this web page.
