General Font Licenses

Frequently Asked Questions

Do

  • Use the Licensed Font for personal and commercial purposes, under the allowances of each license
  • Sell an unlimited amount of items for the number of projects permitted in each license (e.g. unlimited sales of one ebook title for the E-pub License)
  • Sublicense the font in three situations only:
    • to a third party that manufactures, markets, or distributes completed End Uses on your behalf,
    • to a subcontractor that provides services to you,
    • to a client, when you’re transferring them a completed End Use

 

Don’t

  • Resell or Sub-License the Licensed Asset as in a way that is directly competitive with the original Licensed Asset.
  • Resell any modification of the asset on its own.
  • Make the asset public or share the asset in any way.

E-pub: An electronic publication such as an ebook or ecard. This format is based on web standards, so it often contains XML, HTML, and CSS resources. Aside from text, it can embed different types of multimedia files like images, video, and audio.

@font-face: A CSS rule that allows the website viewer’s browser to render a font by pointing to the file.

Print-on-demand: A type of application that builds and prints items on order. Under these license terms, the use of fonts in conjunction with this technology is forbidden whenever the end user is not the Licensee.

Rasterized form: the conversion of fonts, which are defined by vectors, to pixel graphics that are not editable or scalable.

You may use a font as part of your logo, as long as the original asset is (1) modified and (2) not the dominant element of the logo. However, you must disclaim the asset if registering for Trademark protection, and you may not enforce any rights on the font itself.

Yes, but make sure you purchase a number of seats/items that is consistent with the amount of users.

You may only use the Licensed webfont with the @font-face selector in your CSS files. Also make sure to include all Copyright and legal information files in your font’s download folder.

With a Desktop license, yes. The Licensee can apply the font in unlimited physical advertisements and rasterized for use in digital advertisements for local, national, and global markets. If you are designing these ads on behalf of a third party, a special sublicensing exception applies (see “Can I use a Licensed font for client work?”).

Yes. This is one of the special sublicensing exceptions. You can sublicense the asset to a client, when you’re transferring them a completed End Use.

If a contractor needs to use the font in relation to a project of yours, you can sublicense it while making sure to purchase the right amount of user seats.

You can only upload the font to a personal server or a private cloud storage service, cloud-based design app, or digital asset manager fully owned and controlled by the Licensee. In any case, the Licensed Font should only be available for use by the Licensee.
