EULA

Jon Sleeman's picture

Hello.

I am just about to release a font through a large font supplier and they have sent me their standard EULA. They have been very helpful but I just thought I would have a quick check as I don't know much about the subject and also feel a little snowed under by the amount of information out there!

Should I use the font suppliers EULA?

or

Should I try to create my own EULA?

Hi Joe,

I think this is a long discussion. By using the serch engine above you can find many topics about EULAs here in Typophile Forums.

I particulary use the MyFont's standard EULA and I never had any problem.

I think this is a matter of 'how do you want people using your fonts'. If you find anything that you do not agree or that you think it could be a little different in any standard EULA, I encourage you to modify that points before licensing your fonts.

Cheers,

Every EULA is a little different. It really depends upon what you want to do with your fonts and how you want (don't want) them used. I don't think I've read their EULA. A direct link to their EULA would be good so we can read it and comment specifically about it.

Thanks for your feedback, its good to know you use Myfonts, as thats who I was planning to go with. They are very helpful whenever you contact them. I have had a look through their license and it does seem reasonable.

I don't have any particular use for my font in mind, it is my first font to be released and is a bit of an experiment into commercial font design. Hopefully it will sell and therefore be worthwhile! Thanks for your help.
