End User License Agreement Documents Regarding Fonts:
Fonts are creative and intellectual property. Typefaces are the result of extensive research, study, and experimentation, and for some designers the creation of typefaces is their livelihood.
The right to use fonts is licensed, and the right to use a font designed by someone else is acquired from the foundry that created the font and is granted in the form of an end-user license agreement (EULA). There are different types of EULAs depending on the use.
If caught using a font without the proper license, the user will have to purchase the correct license for the font and in some cases pay damages to the originating foundry.

To ensure that you are complying with font licensing standards, you can use the following guidelines:
1) Make sure you have a license for all fonts that you are using.
2) When installing new fonts on your computer, make sure you also obtain the license to use it.
3) If you have questions about a font license contact the vendor.
4) Don’t lend or give fonts to others to use unless you originally licensed the font for multiple users and you are sharing only with those designated as multiple users in the license agreement.
5) When downloading fonts that are available for free, be sure to check their license agreement for correct usage. The types of usage allowed can vary from personal use to educational use to commercial use.
