I kept reading and re-reading the Help Center, but I’m still confused about the following matters:
can I use SIL OFL-licensed icon fonts (e.g. FontAwesome) in a print design template and ~Outline~ the individual icon characters to become graphics that are part of the design?
for FontAwesome it says that it’s under SIL OFL, and the license says it can be redistributed - does Envato allow redistributing the SIL font file of FontAwesome with the main file zip?
let’s say my print template uses solely SIL OFL fonts, license that says redistribution is allowed - will Envato reject my item if I redistribute the SIL OFL fonts in the main zip file so that the buyer doesn’t have to download the fonts themselves before opening the print template?
I don’t see why I have to give links to fonts instead of including the fonts even when they are clearly licensed under a redistributable SIL OFL license?
Below text taken from the license:
The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and
redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The
fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded,
redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved
names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives,
however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The
requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply
to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.
Original or Modified Versions of the Font Software may be bundled,
redistributed and/or sold with any software, provided that each copy
contains the above copyright notice and this license
The Font Software, modified or unmodified, in part or in whole,
must be distributed entirely under this license, and must not be
distributed under any other license
