Posted on August 25, 2007, Andrew World of Warcraft Being Sued by Chinese Company


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.
