I have a question regarding the Font Family Futura - in particular the font Futura XBlkCn BT.
To be more precise I want to know if this font is allowed to use in Logos etc.?
I am literally searching the hell out of google to find a proper answer for this, unfortunately not with a satisfying answer. What I found out until now is that the font family from futura is not per definition protected for any use in a logo or a corporate identity. According to my research futura itself is "public domain", which means (at least in my understanding) that this font should be free for corporate use or did I understood that wrong?
Actually I am a bit concerned since a friend of mine informed me that the brand "Absolut - Vodka" is using a similar font for their corp-identity.....
Since I am not that deep familiar with the copyright in terms of fonts I would really appreciate any feedback, links for copyright terms for fonts, etc from you guys. :-)
Thanks in advance for your answers.
