> The font "Open Sans", which can be downloaded from Google fonts is published under the
Apache License 2.0 [https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Open+Sans]. The license says that the
font can be used in any medium and for commercial purpose, if the following requirements are
> [http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0]
> {{4. Redistribution. You may reproduce and distribute copies of the Work or Derivative
Works thereof in any medium, with or without modifications, and in Source or Object form,
provided that You meet the following conditions:
> You must give any other recipients of the Work or Derivative Works a copy of this License;
> I consider using a font in print is somewhat a redistribution. 
> The question is, how can I give my recipients a copy of the license, if the font is used
in a printed book? 
> Do I have to provide the link to the license? Or do I have to include the license in
full in book? 
> Thanks for your support and help,
> Peter
