My pal, Josh Farmer, pitches a bold idea: what if Typekit were to buy Comic Sans for the sole purpose of taking it off the market?

Typekit has allowed typographical beauty on the web in a way unimagined before. They accomplish this by giving. They give their service, their code, an exhaustive set of tools, helpful descriptions, a repository of well designed sites, and tips to move you into font mojo territory.

But what if giving is only half of what Typekit could do to remake the web? What if they did something never attempted in the font world?
