    Re: Ubuntu-Bold.ttf is this font from you guys

    oki thank you for the quick response I ask the question because i use the font in my operating sistem and i keep a backup of my fonts in dropbox just in case, and today i recived a copyright infrigment notice from them claiming that I was infrigting lions gates copyright.

    These is part of the notice
    Hi Dropbox User,

    We've received a notification under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") from Lions Gate Films that the following material is claimed to be infringing:

    dl.dropbox.com/u/7778282/Fuentes/Ubuntu-Bold.ttf
    so i just wanted to know if i was actually violating a copyright.

    Your best bet is to contact dropbox and point them to the Ubuntu font license.
    Frivolous DMCA takedown requests are the norm, so Lions Gate is just doing what is normal procedure and seeing what sticks.

    There are not using Ubuntu fonts on their web site. The font is called PeteMedium. This could be an attempt at "beating the bushes" to scare out anyone who just might be breaching there copyright.
