Maven breaks binary resources

The fun thing is that after checking in the change the Bamboo build was also correct. My colleagues, who were still trying to resolve the font error, were quite amazed, as was I. For some reason Maven had messed up the files while filtering and copying. Quite bizarre if you think of the fact that the XSD file which caused my error didn’t have a keyword in it that should be substituted and the font file that caused the Bamboo error was binary…
I'd be plainer than that developer: Maven breaks your binary resources once you turn resource filtering on. I've spotted this twice: with an attached dll, and with a license file.
