I was sent a file for a USDA poultry icon that is required to be on a food package front. The file says it was from the USDA and we are supposed to use font: Akzidenz-Grotesk BQ Medium from Berthold. https://www.bertholdtypes.com/font/akzidenz-grotesk/bq/
I went and looked for the font at the website and saw these EULA restrictions.
No Commercial Printed Matter. Licensee may not use the Font Software to create printed matter for commercial business use (e.g. books, magazines, etc.).
No Logo Usage. Licensee may not use the Font Software to create and/or modify the digital character outlines of the Font Software for the purpose of embedding the same into digital files depicting a logo.
No Conversion into Vector Outlines/Rasterized Bitmaps. Licensee will not convert the Font Software into vector outlines and/or rasterized bitmaps.
My questions are:
Does (No Commercial Printed Matter) mean no commercial work any kind? What is the purpose of buying a commercial desktop license? Am I misunderstanding?
Does (No Logo Usage) mean I can't use it for a seal or icon? Isn't that kind of like a logo?
Does (No Conversion into Vector Outlines) mean if the printer asks me to convert art to outlines I must refuse to do so?
