Unless they have explicit permission to use the trademarks in their font
(which I can't imagine they have), the font is clearly infringing upon
the trademarks because it is placing those logos in contexts that imply
that there is a relationship between the owners of those trademarks and
any place the font is in use.
That's a trivial lawsuit waiting to happen.
