Fonts allowing for Cufon
0

Hi
Does anybody know of a (complete) list of fonts ready for Cufon use? Of course, i'm not looking for "Ten Awesome Free Fonts". I pay good money. Or rather, my customer hopefully does.

thanks

alex

Any license that allows Cúfon embedding also allows proper "naked" referencing, I think, because it is hardly hidden. And those are only available from free (and/or open, public, whatever) sources. I've heard of "naked" embedding of the recent FontShop Axel release, which is corroborated by the webfonts.info wiki (which gets its info from this post on the FontFeed), so that looks good. Otherwise, the only list I know of is that one on the webfonts wiki. Start there, or wait for the guys who've actually read all the recent EULA-updates from the big foundries, if any.

Not necessarily. Cúfon is akin to sIFR, where a "raw" font is converted to another format and then linked from a webpage. So that's different from linking directly to a "naked"/"raw" font.

Cúfon (and sIFR) cannot be used on the desktop, for example, so I can easily see licenses allowing those "embedding" solutions but at the same time disallowing direct linking to "raw" fonts.

Hey, I've got an idea, why not use the names of the formats?

Cheers!

Aside from the license I used for my Downturn family I don’t believe that there are any commercial font licenses that explicitly allow Cufon. Licenses that allow SiFR embedding might also allow to Cufon; ask the vendor to find out.

Well, of course there are other foundries who explicitly allow Cúfon embedding. The WEB fonts from Mota Italic are one example… http://www.motaitalic.com/info/legal/eula-overview (scroll down)
