Use of the Font file MingLiU.ttc for commercial purposes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a query relating to the use of the font file MingLiU.ttc that microsoft supplies with all its products. I am going to use it in Java parsing program for my organisation. Doing this will require to download this font file. Then I will convert it to MingLiU_HKSCS.ttf using a free software Font Forge and I will use this MingLiU_HKSCS.ttf in my program. Hence, I want to know whether doing will require any sort of license?

    Although, I have inquired Microsoft Developers' Network Department through toll- free number 1-800-102-1100 and got the response that in this case no any license is required. I need a written reply as a reference, however.

    Thanks in advance.
