emailing type foundries

OK, So I've emailed the following type foundries:

-The Northern Block
-Hype For Type
-A2 Type

And I asked them the following questions:

Firstly, as you see it, do you feel well protected by the copyright law concerning typefaces?

What do you see as the main flaws of the way the law works to protect you as a designer?

Why do you feel so many people are willing to appropriate typefaces without the artist/designer's permission?

How do you feel would be the best way to resolve this ongoing problem? Does it come from a change in legislation, or an attempt to change people's attitudes...?

Hopefully this will give me a lot of good source material to really assess the problem and what graphical solution I can create for it.
