Ascender Corp Announces Font License Program for Server and Web Applications

Ascender Corporation announced a new licensing program for font software implementations with server-based applications. This new program addresses the limitations with standard end user font licenses. The Ascender Server Font License program grants organizations the right to install fonts on a server for use with an application that can be accessed by an unlimited number of users. The server license is available for either internal use (i.e an Intranet within an entity), or external use (for Internet-based applications).

Elk Grove Village, IL -- June 28, 2007 -- Ascender Corporation, a leading provider of fonts for hardware & software developers, today announced a new licensing program for font software implementations with server-based applications. Currently the standard end user font license restricts usage to personal computers and prevents fonts from being used on servers. Companies that are implementing server-based applications, whether on Intranets or on the Internet, now have an extensive collection of fonts to choose from to enhance their applications.

The Ascender Server Font License program grants organizations the right to install fonts on a server for use with an application that can be accessed by an unlimited number of users.
