The Font Bureau, Inc. has filed a $2 million lawsuit against NBC over unlicensed installations of fonts, including Bureau Grotesque and Interstate.
Apparently, NBC used purchased fonts on many more computers than the original license allowed, and also used fonts which had not been purchased.
Guess we can look forward to a lot of creative uses of Times New Roman in upcoming NBC advertising.
PS: when’s the last time you read the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) for the fonts you own? (And I do mean own. You do, don’t you?)
