Apple Renews Microsoft Font License
At TypeCon2007 Thursday, Apple renewed its font licensing agreement with Microsoft, which gives users of Mac OS X access to the core fonts in Windows. The deal covers popular document and Web fonts, including Times New Roman, Arial and Verdana.
The two companies did not say how long the new agreement will last, although it's unlikely that Microsoft would ever prevent Apple customers from using its fonts - especially since the company offers software for the rival platform. The joint press release notes that, "Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system and iLife and professional applications."
