font license

License for DIN-Bold and DIN-Light


Hi, I am a research scholar and am currently working with a designer and a publisher on my first academic publication. My question concerns the two fonts used on the cover title – DIN-Bold and DIN-Light. The problem is, I don’t know much about font licensing, but want to be on the right side of the law. I have realized that both my publisher and my designer are reluctant to buy the font licenses themselves, so it is now up to me to do the right thing. My designer asked me that I will have to acquire the license online. I tried to find the font, but there are several different DIN fonts around the web. I can’t figure out which of the many DIN fonts available online are these 2 particular fonts.
