    “In the most profound treachery and sustained exploitation of friendship, trust and confidence, Hoefler accepted all of the benefits provided by Frere-Jones while repeatedly promising Frere-Jones that he would give him the agreed equity, only to refuse to do so when finally demanded"
    That is pretty harsh, from both parties, and really unexpected.

    http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2014/01/what-hoefler-frere-jones-breakup-means-for-the-future-of-type-design/ - an interesting article on what it actually means. I was really excited about cloud.Typography, but it seems as though it will probably be affected.

    Some sites refer to them as "The Beatles" of typographic design.

    Yeahhhhh, just got around to reading it. This is gonna be a messy one. Oh well, looks I'll be going back to Typekit.

    I hope that it story will finish good for both. I'm so sad about that because this is one of the best type foundry.

    Just read the document. Too bad for the future projects. Wonder if HFJ can still be used for webfonts after this. Back to typekit! :/
