: Can I use a freeware font downloaded from the internet off a free-font site in an e-book that will be put online to sell? Will that violate any copyright? Thanks.
I couldn't take professional responsibility without being retained and going over the facts and law.
Off the cuff, my view of the situation is that the font per se cannot be protected. The software that controls the font may be protected under a copyright.
