Major Network Sued for Using Typefaces Without Paying for Them

Oct 9, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The Font Bureau, a company that designs typefaces for firms like Apple and Microsoft, has filed suit against NBC Universal and CNBC for failing to secure the rights to the materials used in advertising and promotion for such NBC shows as "The Jay Leno Show," "Saturday Night Live" and "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon," reports Cityfile New York.

Font Bureau, which is seeking "no less than $2 million" in damages, charges that NBC used trademarked fonts for multiple uses but only paid for a single license and only paid to use a limited number of fonts.

Cityfile says it is still waiting for comment from an NBC spokesperson.

  1. Whether we appreciate it or not, Fonts are protected under copyright law. They are the product of design work and possess commercial value. Believe me NBC knows that. I suspect there is a tremendous amount of copyright infringement when it comes to fonts used online and on mobile networks. Most organizations, do not keep track of when and where they got their license to the fonts. — by internet copyright lawyer — http://www.web20lawyer.com/page0/page28/copyright-lawtml.html
