New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Hello there, everybody! Been forever since my last post. Good to be back. Been busy.
So, my fiancee is working on a short animation film, and obviously, it will have titles/credits, etc. Being the designer, and her the animator, I thought I'd help out. However, her peers have been advising her about public broadcast of fonts used, stating there are certain restrictions one can get in legal troubles with. The last thing we want is to have her opus stifled by some legal restriction of a font used.
My question is this: If I buy my typefaces used at MyFonts (for example), paying the fee listed, are we able to use them for public/broadcast use, etc.? I guess I'm not sure if there are differences between print licensing for use, and broadcast licensing for use. I planned on designing a logotype of sorts to be used for her film, which could be used on the film, brochures, promos, t-shirts, whatever. It's possible these could somehow lead to profit, etc. But each and every font used, we will be purchasing for this purpose.
I did find a post on here about this already:
But his case was describing a freeware font issue.
So....after all that....Thoughts? Legal reference? If I purchase them, are we in the clear?
