End User License Agreement

t1mmy's picture

So, I've followed the many suggestions on typophile and am now ready to make my font public. What is the standard information to include in an EULA? Do I model mine after an existing example? What do I need to change, if I decide to follow my previous question. And what worked for you when you first started. Perhaps there is another thread that explains this, however I couldn't find one. Thanks for your help

Tim, I would have to say that modeling your user agreement after an existing one is not such a bad idea. Take a look through a half dozen or so and pick and choose from these to create your own that fits your needs and desires. Keep what you like, throw out what you don't.

Of the half dozen you choose to reference for your model make sure that they are reputable sources. The more legitimate the foundry is the more likely their licensing is legitimate to.

But remember copying is bad. It needs to be your license in the end.

Otherwise get a lawyer. But he/she would probably start from an existing one as well.

I think you could write one yourself.

Good Luck.

PS. I'm glad you liked my joke. I thought of it over a pile of beer-battered shrimp. Not to mention the beer.

What did the "R" say to the "Q"?

Or: "Stop poking me!"
And then the "S": "YOU should complain!!"
And then the "U": "Who me? I never complain. Anyway, it's T's turn."

Better:
And then the "U": "Tell me about it! That's not a poker, that's a sledghammer - two of them!!"

And then the "T": "I don't know what you're talking about, you wannabe V."
And then the "V": "You go girl!"
And then the "W": "You should talk, half-glyph."
And then the "X": "Don't be so cross!"
And then the "Y": "Why oh why this animosity? X is right."
And then the "Z": "You just want to get under her skirt - must be genetic. Anyway, I feel sleepy - g'night."

BTW, I guess Kallir* was onto something after all: "S" being such a sexy letter gets fondled from both sides! :-)
