Berthold versus Nick Curtis

Nick Curtis was sued by Berthold over the use of the nouns City and Boulevard in some of his typefaces.

He explains: Several years back, BertholdType chose to sue me because I used the words Boulevard and City in some of my typeface names. Had they simply made a polite request, I would have happily complied. Instead, a game of legal gotcha ensued, which generated several reams of paper, with rebuttals and amended complaints and amended rebuttals, and so on. However, a lot of legal work is research, and BertholdType--rather foolishly--chose to sue an English major with an IQ that places him in the top .001% of the population (okay: I'm too smart for my own good). When the second rebuttal essentially nailed Berthold's lawyers for fifteen counts of Fraud by Omission under the U.S. Code, the charm offensive--a.k.a., Melissa Hunt--suggested that we settle the matter amicably--in other words, in precisely the same manner as we would have if they had made a polite request in the first place. Go figure.
