How to send documents with fonts
Most documents to be output include fonts. Fonts are considered software and are licensed, not purchased. The license (called an End User License Agreement or EULA) details how the font may be used. The following are general rules for submitting documents that contain fonts for output. Consult your specific EULA or speak to a representative at the font foundry for specific details of your agreement.
Font license general rules.
1. Fonts are software and are licensed, not purchased.
2. A typical EULA restricts the usage of a font to 1 or more computers, printers and servers at a location.
3. Fonts may not be transfered to a user outside your location for any reason. This includes sending to a service bureau or printer. The service bureau or printer must have their own license to view or print from the original document.
4. Documents sent in pdf format with fonts embedded can usually be viewed or printed in another location without violating the license. However, such documents may not be edited at the other location without them having the appropriate license.
