Why is Linotype claiming ownership of Eurostile and filing trademark applications when it is in the public domain?
Following are Adobe's notes on Eurostile
In 1952, Aldo Novarese and A. Butti designed Microgramma for the Nebiolo foundry. It was a popular face, but was available only in capitals. In 1962, Novarese produced a full character set, including lowercase letters, and the foundry renamed the family Eurostile. The letters are square-shaped with rounded corners, producing a look reminiscent of the machinery, technology, and interior design of the 1950s.
Eurostile is a trademark of Nebiolo.
