Font Licensing Workshop
Are the fonts you use in your business legal?
Font licensing is now THE hot topic of 2018 – and we want to help you learn your responsibilities in this complicated, and potentially costly world. The risk is real. Font license litigation is on the rise, and there is no design firm or client too small for their attention.
All fonts used commercially need appropriate licensing to be legally used and this workshop will take you through the right methods and practices to protect yourself, your company and your brand. You’ll learn how to select the best fonts and choose the right licenses for design and approval, printing, and how to use them in the real world. We’ll cover the tools you need at your desktop to properly manage and track your fonts, and the technical workflow required to keep it all running.
The end result: You will know the right way to select, manage and license fonts. By focusing on what you need to know to manage your font licensing needs, and mitigate your risk of litigation, you can get on with the business of selling your products and services.
