When it rains it pours. Founder Electronics has sued Blizzard Entertainment in China for using their Chinese Fonts without permission. Read more at China Daily. Thanks, Rayder@Barthilas.
“Beijing High People’s Court has accepted Founder Electronics’ case.
Founder Electronics is asking for compensation of 100 million yuan for the alleged infringement – the largest amount claimed by a Chinese company in a copyright case.
Founder Electronics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Founder Group, is the nation’s largest font supplier and has developed hundreds of multi-language fonts that are widely used in the country.
It alleges its fonts were illegally used in Blizzard’s popular online game World of Warcraft.
The game is operated by NASDAQ-listed The9 Ltd, a Shanghai-based.”
