I'm keen to hear all the opinions on how you think Server Licenses should be priced and handled. Especially since these types of licenses seem to be on the upswing.
I'm referencing them for when specifically when used on, for example, a popular website that creates personalized items like wedding invites, mugs,merch etc using the font - where the customer can type with the font whatever they want on the item to see how it looks, then click buy.
On research, some seem to price per Server size, some are priced per monthly users/customers , and others are priced per 10 000 products made available.
The length also varies from perpetual to annual to per mass quantity. And how would you go about checking these stipulations and limitations once the licnese is in use? Do you send them an email every year, to every customer? And in situtations where you can't tell how many items they are really selling - do you audit them or what? How do you keep on top of them and their enforcement? Or is it blind trust?
I'm also ESPECIALLY keen to hear if you think it's a good idea to allow other font vendors to handle these particular licenses for you ( like myfonts ,fontspring etc) - where you cannot necessarily see who bought what when - to check up on the annual validity if thats the option.
Just throw it all in here
I'm all ears!
