Licensing of fonts in InDesign

Hello everyone,
I am using the InDesign very frequently and I am having some questions to ask. I'm about to buy a Font on the FontShop website for one of my clients (small agency planner): the beautiful future in next ultralight in OTT. My question, which I hope to not only make exceptions to the codes of the forum is: What happens if my customer comes to himself, that font installed on a workstation too compared to the license purchased? Hoping that someone must be knowing about it and would help me soon.

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

The rule is that each user buys the license. In practice, I can not see the client and designer to buy the same font. And moreover the printer and so on. So, buy the font for your client. It is already very good. If the customer claims you melt, you'll have to send him with the usual caveats. You seem to be saying that a priori, if a designer buys a policy, it can be used on several of its clients, as long as they do not transmit. So then it is to create documents which do not allow the extraction of iron, of course, but no less digital.

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

Extremely thanks for the reply. But I am still having some more doubts. It seems to me that I would not here the answer to my question. Nevertheless, I raise. Someone? If I buy a license for 10 users and uses an eleventh position that happens? Is it activates the screen and printing postscript or not? I can offer to buy him sharing with me a multisite license, once it's cheaper, it can edit the document itself, another claimant to work on site on it ... In this case, can I still even reuse them for other clients? Hope that you understood what I am saying.!!

There will be nothing special, everything will work normally, everything will print normally, everything will appear normal. Your client will simply illegal. The general license Linotype (editor of Avenir Next, and whose conditions apply regardless of the shop where you acquire the policy) allows use on FIVE workstations located on the same site and connected to a single LAN, thus, the only form embedded EOT on a single non-commercial website.

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

All workstations should be positioned together and belong to the same "unit" in the company of the licensee. If business use of cast iron, you can still install it also on ONE remote PC or laptop (office / house, whatever ...). By cons, this license is not transferable. For the printer, no problem: it is allowed - provided it does not keep copies, and it does not engage in the work of editing / correction (...!). However, either the designer acquires the license, the police guard his house and made all the work for the customer if it wants this font is used ... either by providing the iron to the customer, leave it to him to undo seal, and the designer will work on a post trvail client.

"Layout (Annual Report / such and such graphics). The software used - including fonts included - remains the property of the designer". Delivery of documents in print or PDF for example. You buy the license - but you can integrate its cost to your bill of course, like that of your consumables. In other cases, you can contact them and negotiate a license extension of use (cheaper than a separate license - but you have to negotiate). That is the law ... After that, between what is said, what is written and what is practical.!!

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

In practice, the client lambda, an advertiser generally knows nothing about these practices. Just as in music, video, photography, illustration, etc.. the client understands that he rarely has to pay for the virtual. A few years ago, I have a client who refused to pay for a font which I imposed the purchase. The main problem appears when the client calls the native document. He hopes to receive a file Xpress and Indesign, imports and fonts. All three are protected under various copyrights by or licenses. The provision of a pdf as Baron suggested in principle solve the problem unless the customer (bad faith) insists to recover everything. I had a case several times. The client is a big job to do the design and implementation and in subsequent editions to himself or by a less experienced performer hoping to make economy. And that's where the conflict starts. And only results rarely an amicable arrangement.

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

I suggest the greatest possible clarity in the early contact with a new client and when the supply / billing. Good working conditions printed on the back of the latter is not without interest. With the magic phrase on the face "according to our working conditions on the reverse of this document". Among the cases, I even have a customer who picked my CDs at the printer and so therefore the model files and fonts that I created or modified specially for the job in question (1500 pages anyway!). Very frustrating but ultimately too complex to deal with justice expects any compensation. I preferred to keep the customer. And since I have largely recovered the shortfall.

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

If the customer wants to use the font itself is simple: he buys from the smelter. Having the right to visit the men in black to the Agency a few years ago, no joke twice about it, even if they did not control the licensing of software. It rarely does a font to a photoengraver must make corrections with the usual caveats, it must CAD to remove them after use. In practice, it is tolerated because otherwise all business graphic is blocked. There is also the solution of vectorizing all the fonts in the original document, no more font problem ... If the customer uses a font that can not justify the purchase, he is liable to its substantial financial penalties in case of control, much higher than the purchase of the font. However, controls, there are actually very little and even less for individuals. The big companies are more profitable in this case.

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

The general rule: the customer pays only if it is forced. If someone can pay to him is better. In general, the concern is not whether or not the dentist has the license of its program or scaling if the butcher has paid the upgrade of its cash register. On the other hand, Gutenberg did not hit much in royalties on his invention. Too bad for him. So everything is relative. I saw the pictures last week I had made for a client on a website containing also the style that I created for a brochure. The client he asked my permission, do you? Except that both of them are under strict controls. (PS / and there is no software scaling, they often only is the cpcam and there does not laugh either above that require us to pay).

Re: Licensing of fonts in InDesign

The most convenient way to pay royalties or copyright is possible to concentrate among other items to be charged and added at the bottom "use rights transferred with such restriction?. It is easier to add 15% to each position to put a line on the bill: "user fees" or "license X or Y" or "assignment of rights". The customer does not like it, it does not understand and has the feeling of being scammed. Otherwise you have a trade association such as AFD at your disposal, which not only advise you but also makes advances legal fees if deemed necessary, and that his lawyers are specialists in copyright and the right picture.
