Buyer’s Guide: Dalton Maag EULA

Welcome to our second installment in our EULA series where we highlight a few points that may interest you. Last week we went over OurType’s EULA, this week we’ll focus on Dalton Maag.

DL

Dalton Maag allows font embedding within their standard EULA, but the font file has to be converted to a web-specific format first. Licensed users can convert files into EOT, WOFF, SVG, and Cufón, as long as the file is produced specifically for the web and cannot be used as a desktop font. As a rule, 1,000 unique visitors a day to your website is equivalent to 1 desktop user license.

Basic EULA Rights

  • Desktop use supports up to 5 users.
  • Web embedding is allowed, but the font file must be converted to web-specific format.
  • 1,000 unique visitors a day to your website is equivalent to 1 desktop user.

Restrictions

  • You cannot share the font with users that do not have a license for the same font.
  • You cannot embed the raw font file into a website.
  • You cannot embed the font into electronic books or magazines.
  • You cannot embed the font into an Application.

EULA highlights will be posted every other Monday. Stay tuned for Sudtipos.

Buyer’s Guide: OurType EULA

We’re introducing a new series for buyers. Every month we will pick two foundries from FontShop and highlight key points that you should pay attention to in their EULA.

OU

The first foundry we’ll highlight is OurType because of their exceptional basic EULA that allows web and mobile embedding. Yes, I said their basic EULA allows you to embed the font you licensed into one (1) website and one (1) mobile app. The standard license also allows embedding the fonts into PDFs and e-Publications! Since OurType delivers OpenType, TrueType, and EOT/WOFF files with their product you’ll have everything that you’ll need to create documents, a web site, and a mobile app.

Now for the fun part. The basic license allows OurType fonts to be used in a single (1) location for up to 5 users, but you can extend the license to support additional locations and users. You can not share the fonts with third parties that do not have a license for the same fonts. And you can not send the font files to a service bureau or a printer, but you can deliver your files as press-ready PDFs with the fonts embedded. If your website or mobile app allows users to create content using the font, then an additional license (Online Editing-Publishing) will need to be issued.

Phew! Hope you got all of that. If you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.

EULA highlights will be posted every other Monday. Stay tuned for Dalton Maag.

Buyer’s Guide: Need A Quote?

For many of the desktop fonts available, you can license up to 1,000 users for the fonts online. If you need to license more than 1,000 users for the fonts you’re interested, contact us and we can let you know the costs for larger Multi-User Licenses.

Quotes are easily obtained once you’ve added the items you need to purchase to the cart. Desktop fonts are licensed in blocks of users; you will have to enter the number of computers that you will need to support, and the cart will automatically recalculate your subtotal if necessary. The default number of users is the cost of a basic license.

Web licensing is based on the number of pageviews per month the website you’ll be using the fonts on generates. Pricing for webfonts are based in tiers of up to 500000 pageviews per month (pvm), 5 million pvm, or 50 million pvm. If your website is super popular and the traffic it generates is over 50 million pvm, let us know and we can provide quotes based on your needs.

Be sure to double check the End User License Agreement before licensing font. End User License Agreements, EULAs for short, are rules to follow when you want to use a font. You’ll want to keep in mind that you are not purchasing the typeface itself, but a license to use the font software. Because we have 100+ foundries that have their own EULA and you might not want to read every single one, we added a shortcut to a product’s EULA at the bottom of their page.

If your company is growing, you can always extend your license to support additional computers by contacting us. We’ll also answer any additional questions you may have before your purchase.

 

Buyer’s Guide: Finding the End User License Agreement

buyersguide-eulas

Here at FontShop, we have thousands of fonts. In turn, we sell fonts from many different foundries. Each foundry has their own End User License Agreement (EULA), which is important to read before purchasing a font.

There are a couple different ways to find the EULA for a font. If you know the foundry of the font you’re interested in, you can go to our Licenses page, which lists out every EULA by foundry.

You can also find a link to a font’s EULA at the bottom of its product’s page:

End User License Agreements are rules to follow when you want to use a font. You’ll want to keep in mind that you are not purchasing the typeface itself, but a license to use the font software. Don’t forget to read the EULA!

Buyer’s Guide: What is a EULA?

An End User License Agreement, EULA (pronounced ‘yoo-la’) for short, are the terms that you agree to when you license a font on FontShop. EULAs tell you what you can and can’t do with your software.

They can vary slightly from foundry to foundry and we’ve added shortcuts on each product page for your convenience.


Please keep in mind that a Basic License can always be extended to a Multi-User license. Webfonts are licensed based on the number of pageviews your site receives in a month. And if you find that the EULA can’t support your needs, then please contact us and we’ll find a solution for you.

Buyer’s Guide: Basic Licensing for Desktop Use

When you license a font you want to make sure that you pay attention to what your needs are and how to support those needs by purchasing the correct license. We previously went over how webfonts are licensed, but here’s a refresher in how desktop licensing works.

A basic license is the initial cost to license a font. The End User License Agreement, EULA for short, are the terms that you agree to when you license the font. Each foundry has their own EULA and because we have over 100+ foundries, we’ve added a shortcut to every font’s license at the bottom of their product page.

Most desktop EULAs will support up to 5 concurrent users at a single geographic location. But if you need to support more users or additional locations than the EULA allows, you can always extend your license by purchasing an Multi-User license. We’ll go over MULs and extending your basic license next week.
