    Copyrights for fonts from Windows?

    Hi there, if I use a generic Windows font in Photoshop to create a graphic, is this then okay to sell in an App, or are there some kind of copyright issues?

    Which font? You can look up the license for most fonts online, and the way you're allowed to use them can vary between licenses.

    That said, I haven't gone out of my way to look up licenses for fonts I've used in games (though I've avoided fonts that are explicitly commercial).

    As standard practice I probably wouldn't use any of the fonts that come with windows as legal worries aren't something I want, but you can find plenty of nice 'free for commercial use' fonts at sites like http://www.fontsquirrel.com/

    Thanks guys, guess I'll just search for "free for commercial use" fonts and find the closest approximation to be on the safe side Thanks again!

    Copyrights for fonts from Windows?

    www.dafont.com is also good. I use that and fontsquirrel, as Gradius suggested.

    I've been curious about the font Microsoft uses for the Windows 10 update screens. It's nice!
