[WSG] Century Gothic for web

2011-12-11 Thread Lara Atechian
Hi,



I am working on re-designing a website, and will be using Century Gothic
for headings. My question is: Is it ok to use Century Gothic or I have to
buy some sort of license that allows using on the web.

I checked many websites, there is nothing certain that says buy a licence
or it's a free generic font.


Thanks,
Lara

hi Lara,

Century Gothic is not a free font: http://www.identifont.com/show?1N2

My suggestion is to find a similar font type to Century Gothic in Google Web 
Font (open source fonts) and embed the font from there: 
http://www.google.com/webfonts

cheers,
steven

Hi Lara,

Would depend where you got your Century Gothic font to begin with, usually they 
(the font foundry you got it from originally (it looks like the font was 
originally made and offered for sale by Monotype Imaging)) have permissions 
right up front on what usage is permissable. At this time the font is now 5 
years old and being offered free for web use from what I could find out for 
you, but double checking can never hurt.

Cheers,
Doug Burt

Hi Again Lara,

Sorry about my first post, I should have included this from Monotype Imaging, 
the owner's of Century Gothic, it's their free-online usage link for signing up 
to use Century Gothic for free on the web.
