Hi all,

I’m a big fan of the sIFR technology, and was wondering whether or not including sIFR files and utilizing them in the design would present any legal/copyright issues.

I’m really not sure, as while the person can’t extract the font from the .swf file( at least I think no one can ), but they can use the file throughout the site. I don’t know if that would be stepping on any toes or not, and figured I should ask before I start designing with sIFR in mind, then having to redesign after the fact because it infringes on copyright.

thanks for the help,

zach

Hi, Here is a similar post from another user: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/sifr-font-licensing/8849

I would say that you wouldn’t be able to use the font, embedded or not, unless you have the right/license to. Free fonts are the way to go but always check the licensing for them.
