Like any other piece of software, fonts are governed by licenses. The premier legal authority on fonts and intellectual property in the United State, Frank Martinez Esq. of The Martinez Group will show how font licenses function, and how your organization can stay on the right side of the law with your licensing strategies.
Not too long ago Mr. Martinez was featured in a documentary chronicling how students deal with the font licensing issue. You can see him at 2:39 in this video, as well as commenting throughout.
Come see Mr. Martinez speak at the Font Management Symposium next week in Chicago. Please Register ASAP as spots are filling up quickly.

Welcome to this month’s Dig This Design, our series dedicated to showcasing the websites we think are making waves on the web. It’s purpose is to recognize our peers—the creative teams and companies that are filling the web with beautiful and innovative design.
Invoke Appeals to the Senses
Invoke Media is an interactive agency hailing from the cool and creative Canadian city of Vancouver. Their impressive client roster spans sought-after consumer brands such as Gap and Dove all the way to adored media outlets including The Onion and ESPN. They also help create tech start-ups such as HootSuite and Snack Box. So it’s obvious their elegant website animation would parallel their agency name.
You may have recently heard about a bug named Heartbleed in the secure communication OpenSSL software library that could allow others to access the memory of affected systems.
While we do not believe that any of our secure communications have been intercepted, we wanted to let you know that we are committed to protecting the confidentiality of all user data by updating our systems.
How does this affect Extensis Products?
The Heartbleed bug affected none of our installable products. For details, see this knowledge base article.
How does this affect Extensis.com and WebINK.com?
Like the vast majority of other companies, Extensis.com and WebINK.com were using a version of OpenSSL that contained this bug.
As of today, April 10, 2014, Extensis.com and WebINK.com have been fully updated using the new, patched version of the OpenSSL, and new SSL certificates for these sites and services have been re-issued and replaced.
For your best protection, we are working with any third-party services to ensure they are patched and up to date as well.
