We are sorry to write this email to all of you. BUT it involves our Language not becoming ADALITHA BAHSHE of KARNATAKA STATE.

KANNADA FONTS PIRACY needs to be looked into. PLEASE take some time and look into this.

Govt. of KARNATAKA has been duped by Kannada Ganaka Parishat.”KGAPA/KGP”
KAGAPA has sold IPR Pirated NUDI Fonts to Govt. of Karnataka. About 29 Lakhs was approved for Kannada Software Development.
There is an GO on this. If any one wants this GO we will provide it for you.
KAGAPA was appointed as CERTIFYING AGENCY by GoK to look into FONTS from Different Developers.
KAGAPA does not have background in FONTS DEVELOPMENT.

KAGAPA had made KHALITHA Fonts to test other Developers Fonts. This KHALITHA Fonts was RENAMED it as NUDI FONTS and the sold it to GoK.

The Founder secretary of KAGAPA Mr. A. Sathyanarayana has written Ten pages on how KAGAPA did all these and sold it to GoK.
One of the URL is here. We hope you all can open and read it. It is in KANNADA.

Dr. U. B. Pavanaja who was part of KAGAPA when it was formed, has written about the relationship Between AKRUTHI Fonts, BARAHA Fonts and NUDI Fonts. It is in English. URL is provided here for all of you to read it.

We have an email letter dated in 2004 from Sheshadrivasu of BARAHA Fonts stating hwo he STOLE the IPR?GLYPHS from AKRUTHI Fonts. He has acknowledged this in  his letter. He also has stated that he did not have any knowledge of Fonts and  Developing of Fonts in his letter.  It is in English. Please open it and read.

Late  Sri. Tejasvi knew all these things. He and Dr. Kambar had press conferences and Meetings about Kannada Software Development in 2004, 2005, 2007 and things did not move forward BECAUSE some kannadigas started bringing CASTE ISSUE into the discussions of KANNADA BHASHE. Sri. Tejasvi has written letters to several News papers also. It is all recorded in 2004 and 2005.
