File this one under ‘shooting yourself in the foot’. The new Hadopi agency in France, which will be in charge of overseeing the new three-strikes anti-piracy regime, has been accused of using an unlicensed font for its logo. The font, Bienvenue, was apparently created for France Telecom back in 2000. “The problem is, this font was an `exclusive corporate typeface’. It couldn’t be used for other purposes than France Telecom/Orange products,” says TorrentFreak’s source – the blog is predictably gleeful at the news. The agency that created Hadopi’s logo has apparently confirmed that using the unlicensed font was an “error of manipulation”. France Telecom says it won’t take legal action, but it’s a pretty embarrassing mistake.
