Creative software company Extensis today announced an upgrade to its font server, Universal Type Server 3. Extensis said the new release enables companies to manage font usage and protect company assets from misuse and license infringement.
Extensis said many companies don't understand the restrictions on font usage. "Font licenses are very similar to software licenses and as a result, there are costly legal implications for companies that do not manage them properly,” said Extensis’ senior product manager Chris Meyer. There have been previous cases of font license violation lawsuits, including one involving the popular World of Warcraft game-maker Blizzard.
