I want to use some downloaded fonts in an application I am developing but I am a little confused by the terms of the OFL (Open Font Licence).

Is anyone familiar with it?

I am just confused by this part:

2) 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. These can be
included either as stand-alone text files, human-readable headers or
in the appropriate machine-readable metadata fields within text or
binary files as long as those fields can be easily viewed by the user.

Does this mean that if I use the font in an application I must include the OFL copyright notice with my application or does that only apply if I actually include the font source files with the application?


If you include the fonts in any form, you need to give credit where credit is due. Bundle the license in a text file or make it somehow easily accesible to the user like in a "Credit and Thanks to" page included in the game.
