I recently interviewed to become involved with a small publisher who has a series of about 200 hundred books. His position is somewhat interesting as the last time any of his books were prodcued, printing was mainly still film based. Now, he is in the position of needing to have the books transcribed into a text document, at which point he is hiring typesetters to flow and format them into a layout document. Since the majority of the books are in need of an updated look, and he has no real format (other than a standard size for all the books), he is open to suggestions and moderate redesigns.
My uncertainty here is based on whom needs to retain a license for the use of the typefaces that are featured in the book.
It would seem to me that the publisher would in fact need to purchase a license of whatever fonts I decide to use for his projects based on the fact that he is the one prodcuing them in their print based form. This would mean that I would simply keep an inventory of typefaces used, and add them to an itemized invoice, while also turning over the EULA and digital font files to him in the end.
Is this the correct way to conduct business for this type of project with respect to the intellectual property of fonts?
