A client wants to make a website and use one of my fonts.
He wants that his clients can make changes in certain documents on his website in the right fonts and print out the document they've corrected in the right fonts.
The client himself will put the fonts on one webserver. Further, his clients won't be able to use the fonts, other than to print out the document.
This situation falls into a grey area.
Presently, my EULA does not allow editing and printing of documents from an unlicensed remote location, the idea being that this constitutes typesetting, and that as such it requires a font installed at that location, and a licence for that.
However, it's arguably not really typesetting, as the document (de facto, a form) is already formatted.
So I am inclined to believe that this situation should be permissable, although it will require a separate licence, or an amendment to my basic EULA.
What do you think -- is it a good idea to allow this kind of use, and if so, should there be a special fee for it?
If so, it would be a one time fee, rather than a per end end user fee (too much bureaucracy there). For how much?
