In ancient times, you could double-click a TTF in Windows and see the version number and copyright notice in the preview. With Windows Vista and later it only shows the version number like this:

If you right click/properties/details you can see the copyright message but it's truncated to about 40 characters.

Is it possible for Windows users to view the full copyright message without 3rd party font management software? Was a 40 character limit part of the TT spec all along?
