This is true, and not a bad idea. The only thing to watch for is that the
"clone" is not in a copyright violation. No real good way to tell, other
than asking to see the license agreement before you purchase it.

Another alternative is to look at ITC (International Typeface Corporation).
I am a big fan of their typefaces because they:
a) are a fraction of the cost
b) high quality
c) legal
d) don't require much fondling.

For instance, I wanted a Caslon face, but Adobe wanted over $100 for it. ITC
had Founder's Caslon for $30 (I think). Again, it was "clone" of the Caslon
that I was looking at, but it was legally their's to sell and high quality.

(for the record, I have no affilliation with them other than having
purchased a few fonts a couple of years ago).

Just one more idea.
