Hasbro, the toymaker that manufactures My Little Pony toys is being sued by a font company over its use of a font inspired by the opening titles of the 1961 movie The Parent Trap.
Minneapolis-based Font Brothers claims Hasbro failed to buy a license to use its Generation B typeface on packaging for My Little Pony toy packaging. You can see the packaging below.
Font Brothers charges $20 for using the font but raises its fees depending on the number of people who can potentially see it. The company is seeking $150,000 in damages.
