I'm wondering what legal precautions (if any) should be taken into account for using published text or words (books, articles, hell even tweets
) in a type specimen that you intend to:
1. distribute for free to market your typeface or font?
2. sell as say a LE poster or booklet?
Assuming you could always approach the author/publisher for permission, but in situations where you can't reach them, is citing the author and publication enough?
Thanks so much.
