Subject Apache License 2.0 applied to Fonts
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:16:40 GMT
Dear Sir or Madam:

How does the Apache License, version 2.0 apply to fonts, fonts embedded within a Portable
Document Format (PDF) file,  fonts modified as a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file, and
fonts printed onto a medium (paper, cloth, card-stock, metal, etc)?


For example, Google Fonts Droid Sans is licensed under the Apache License, version 2.0. What
must be done to comply with the Apache License, version 2.0 with regard to the use of this
font when the font is printed  onto a medium (paper, cloth, card-stock, metal, etc)? What
must be done if the font is embedded within a PDF document? What must be done if the font
is converted into SVG?

What requirements are necessary when "redistribution" of the font is in printed form or transmitted
as PDF or embedded in PDF or modified as a Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file?

Sincerely,

The Font FAQ Team
