What fonts can I use in my software?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am currently creating a Smart Launcher theme (Android), which I hope to eventually sell on the Play Store. I would like to use Fixedsys in my theme, but I'm not sure if I'd be breaking any laws in doing so. I also use Fixedsys in some of my other programs which I have had up for download for quite a while on my website.

So, would I be allowed to use this font, and if not, are there any fonts I would be allowed to use that a similar?

It all depends on the licensing of the font. Most free fonts are for personal use only and can not be used commercially. For example, if you buy a font, you are almost always free to use it in print products, on graphics on your web site, etc. But you are almost never allowed to re-distribute a digital version of the font, not even to display it on your web site using tools like sIFR. If you are really worried about a specific font you can always contact the author. Hope that helps!
