Court

THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS BAD PUBLICITY, RIGHT? WRONG!

If you think font license infringement lawsuits are folklore, think again – they can and do exist. In fact, the majority of font licensing infringements are settled well before they make it to court in order to mitigate negative publicity and additional costs.

No advertising agency or brand likes bad press. The optics of being accused of infringing on someone else’s intellectual property can be unsavory and damage your reputation.

The cases shown here are some that made it to court (and the press).

All these cases were preventable. Dont let this happen to your business – contact Font Shield.
