Sorry in advance if this question has already been discussed here… Can I use any font I want for the PREVIEW , regardless of license, and then just let people know which font I used, or do I have to have a license for the preview? I have no idea if this is a stupid question or not, so feel free to rip into me if it is. I searched here but could not find a specific answer. Thanks!

Thanks for your reply, but which question are you saying “yes” to? Is it “yes” I don’t need a license for the preview, or “yes” I do need a license for the preview?

Yes you can use any font you wish in a preview. However you must state the name of the font and where to obtain / purchase it in the file description as well as the documentation provided in the ZIP . Whether or not you have a license to use the font in the first place (ie, however you obtained it yourself) is up to your own discretion.

no, you cannot use a font in the preview files for which you don’t have an appropriate license.

how do you prove you have a license to “Verdana” or other fonts included with operating systems and software? Maybe there should be an official list of fonts that we can use without including a license.

So I am pretty much limited to what I have in my system fonts that came with my computer? Are there any decent fonts besides those, which I can use without a license?

It’s dynamic text loaded from XML , so I can’t graphicate it. And yes, I just made up the word graphicate. That had crossed my mind though, to graphicate it.

What about the free “uni” fonts from miniml? The site says they’re free to use for commercial use. I emailed that dude once about that and he never responded.
