Hi shijina452.
I am not going to give my opinion on your legal basis.
There are probably differences in views, as this type of issue is tolerated in your country, but far more strict in mine.
I think you can go your way.

I just didn't want you to redistribute an add-on package containing commercial font files with my copyright and license wording remaining.

I checked the contents of version 2.0.1. Its okay.
I appreciate your acceptance of my suggestion.
It seems old version 2.0.0 is still on the ESOUI site and available for download, so please delete it as well.

I also like modding font typefaces.
Hope you guys have a better ESO life.

Hi shijina452.
Thank you for your explanation.
There seems to be a precedent in China that font file is software - am I correct in assuming that you have the right to distribute these font files?
It is the right of distribution mentioned in the sixth section of the law.

I am not a legal expert, so I am not sure if the font manufacuture would consider this a non-commercial use since ESO is a commercial service and combined with this add-on, it looks natural that the font is used in a commercial service.

Now I have a suggestion.
I would like to reduce to zero my own risk of being involved in a lawsuit regarding font copyright.
Please replace the lua file LMP_zhFontFI.lua in your add-on with the following.

Lua Code:
  1. local LMP = LibMediaProvider
  2. if LMP then
  3.     LMP:Register("font", "粗宋", "$(FZCS_FONT)")        -- 中文
  4.     LMP:Register("font", "仿宋", "$(FZFS_FONT)")        -- 中文
  5.     LMP:Register("font", "古隶", "$(FZGL_FONT)")        -- 中文
  6.     LMP:Register("font", "兰亭刊宋", "$(FZLTKS_R_FONT)")        -- 中文
  7.     LMP:Register("font", "铁筋隶书", "$(FZTJLS_FONT)")      -- 中文
  8.     LMP:Register("font", "篆体", "$(FZXZ_FONT)")        -- 中文
  9.     LMP:Register("font", "硬笔楷书", "$(FZYBKS_FONT)")      -- 中文
  10.     LMP:Register("font", "硬笔行书", "$(FZYBXS_FONT)")      -- 中文
  11.     LMP:Register("font", "正大黑", "$(FZZDH_FONT)")       -- 中文
  12.     LMP:Register("font", "准圆", "$(FZZY_FONT)")        -- 中文
  13.     LMP:Register("font", "明蝉刻本", "$(HYMCKB_FONT)")      --
  14.     LMP:Register("font", "上首锋芒体", "$(SSFMT_FONT)")       -- 中文
  15.     LMP:Register("font", "上首迎风手写体", "$(SSYFSXT_FONT)")     -- D中文
  16.     LMP:Register("font", "上首战刃体", "$(SSZRT_FONT)")       -- 中文
  17.     LMP:Register("font", "官方中文", "$(GF1_FONT)")     -- 中文
  18.     LMP:Register("font", "官方书籍字体", "$(GF2_FONT)")     -- 中文
  19.     LMP:Register("font", "悬针篆变", "$(XZZB_FONT)")        -- 中文
  20. end

This is all the code needed to register the font. You will see that it works exactly the same.

Now my relationship to your add-on will be zero.
LMP_zhFontFI add-on will be an original add-on created by you, and the name Calamath will not remain in the source files.
You do not have to write an acknowledgement to LMP_jpFontFI in your add-on's description anymore.

I know that Chinese font manufactures have filed licensing lawsuits against several e-commerce sites.
So I don't want to take the risk of being involved in such a thing.
I think I can give you some technical advice on font add-ons in the future.

Re: Re: Concerns about Chinese font licensing

I've moved the addon to the auth queue again, and put it "on hold" until the font licensing has been clarified and validated by the site admins.
Thanks for your understanding.

And thank you for your information about the fonts and licensing.

I would advise you to use Google Font or something else that is allowed to be distributed instead.

BTW, you created this add-on based on my LMP_jpFontFI add-on.
You must know that my add-on is also distributed under a license.

Well, I may grant you permission to make another add-on based on my LMP_jpFontFI add-on.
However , just be careful about the license of the fonts you distribute.
