Tracing the Origins of a Potter Lawsuit, Or, Was NBC Too Font Of Harry?
Here's another Harry Potter lawsuit, this time involving NBC Universal and its use of some typeface on Harry Potter merchandise. While fonts are not copyrightable, software is, and this lawsuit, filed by P22 Type Foundry is over whether the software here was impermissibly used in the creation of the merchandise (for example, whether NBC's people simply used it as is, or whether they reproduced by tracing it, or copying it freehand). More here from the Hollywood Reporter, analysis from Stephanie Rabiner at Findlaw.
