Rick Santorum’s Website Using Pirated Font Leads to $2 Million Lawsuit
I’m willing to bet that this isn’t the kind of PR that Rick Santorum is looking for in his presidential campaign.
On Tuesday, August 16, 2011, the Dutch type foundry Typotheque filed suit against RaiseDigital LLC, a Virginia-based consulting company that develops website and other materials for political campaigns and politicians.
The lawsuit seeks up to $2 Million in damages for the alleged misuse of the Fedra type family. This shines a direct light on the fact that font compliance is a serious issue for anyone working in creative endeavors.
