It seems that NBC Universal is in hot water again concerning unauthorized use of fonts.

According to the Hollywood Reporter article, Brand Design alleges that its records show NBCU subsidiary Oxygen Media purchased a “basic, 36 workstation (users) license to use the CHALET typeface font software.”

While they had a basic license, they did not have the rights to use the typeface on their websites, and used Font Squirrel’s utility to convert the font for web use.

NBC Universal is being sued for $3.5 for allegedly breaching copyrighted font software on the its websites.
