Butler Pro licenses, what you should know

Link to the available licenses

License specifications
Depending on the license(s) you will purchase, you will be subject to grants and limitations. For example, with the purchase of a “Desktop & Web (Standard) License”, you are granted the use of the font software for, let’s say, your client’s branding, website and print (as long as it respects the terms and limitations of the license), but you are forbidden to use the font software for the production of visuals in a television series of that same client. You would need to purchase a “Broadcast License” for that second scenario.

Amount limitations
Please note that all licenses are subject to limitations, including but not limited to specified numbers of: end users; website unique visitors; products; workstations, titles. You are required to maintain records with respect to your use of the font software against such licensed amounts and the author reserves the right to ask you, from time to time, to provide information regarding such amounts and/or to fully document and certify that use of any and all font software at the time of the request is in conformity with your valid licenses from the author, which you must provide to the author within thirty (30) days of his request. In the event your use of the font software exceeds your licensed amounts, you agree to license from the author the necessary additional amounts and pay any fee associated with such increase in usage.

Increasing the limitations
Except for the “Demo License”, the other licenses can be purchased several times to widen incrementally the limitations of end users, website unique visitors, products, impressions, workstations, or titles. For example, if your agency has 18 employees who will need to use the font software on their workstations for, let’s say, graphic design and branding for clients. You will need to either purchase 4 times the “Desktop & Web (Standard) License” (4*5 workstations limitation > 18 workstations) or purchase the “Desktop & Web (Extended) License” which covers the installation of the font software on up to 50 workstations.
