NBC is apparently being sued by the Font Bureau for using un-licensed copies of some of the design firm’s fonts. Font Bureau claims that NBC only bought a single machine license and the copied the font to mutliple machines.

The fonts in question are Bureau Grotesque, Interstate, Antenna and Houschka Pro (pictured above).

I guess this serves as warning to other corporations and firms that would choose to freely trade and disseminate fonts in-company.

P.S. – now that i know the name of the “more colorful” font, I think I wanna get it.
