Blizzard Entertainment may be in trouble. The stylish letters in World of Warcraft could end up costing them a lot of money.

Chinese character fonts are at the basis of this lawsuit, brought on by Founder, a Chinese company which develops character fonts. Apparently, the Chinese version of WoW uses the character fonts without permission, and Founder found a reason to sue.

Blizzard had no immediate comment, though its attorneys said the matter is still under investigation. Should the lawsuit turn out in Founder’s favor, it will possibly be a costly result for Blizzard with 3.5 million subscribers to WoW in China.
