The integration of dynamic web content such as Google Fonts from US web services is illegal in Germany without the visitors’ consent.
This was decided by the Munich Regional Court in a judgement (Ref. 3 O 17493/20). Website operators can be sued for injunctive relief and damages.
Although the ruling of the Munich Regional Court concerns the integration of Google fonts, the principles established by the court also apply to all other content from US services that is externally integrated into websites.
