I'm sorry I am not VMing this information to you. I have posted on the 1st post of this thread that questions will need to be asked on the thread, and I will answer them here.
I am assuming that it simply means that you cannot go and sale these fonts. You have to use them for your graphics or anything you make.
This is a lovely thread, but before people start downloading a ton of fonts, you do need to realize a few things:
1. Free for personal use means that you may use them for creations that you make and intend to use yourself or possibly give to a friend. It means that you may not use them in any commercial way (for creating an image, using the font and then selling it on a product) without obtaining a commercial license, which costs money. And yes, it means you can not sell it or put it into a collection to sell.
2. The downloaded zip file, once opened, should contain a "Read me" document. Make sure you read it! It will outline any terms for using the font (for instance, if you need to link back to the creator if it's posted on the web, or how to obtain a commercial license if you are interested), the creator of the font and many times their website or a way to reach them. I would be extremely cautious using fonts that don't come with a "Read me" file. www.dafont.com tells you on their FAQ page that the fonts a free, demos or in the public domain. They also say, "If no author/licence is indicated that's because we don't have information, that doesn't mean it's free." Personally I won't use a site like that because it can (but not always) mean that some of the fonts listed shouldn't be.
3. The font site I prefer to use is Find, try, buy and download fonts online : MyFonts and it's a much safer way to make sure you are not violating any copyright issues. Yes, fonts, just like images and photos and many other items, ARE copyrighted. The copyright holder is certainly able to make their fonts free for others to use, either with or without restrictions. With MyFonts, you set up an account and pick the fonts you are interested in...many are free, even for commercial use. You add them to your cart and when done, check out. If you've picked only free fonts the cart totals $0.00 and then you are given an order which you download all at once in a zip file. It's great because it keeps a history of the fonts you've downloaded, so if you're like me and have hundreds, you can easily tell if you've already downloaded them.
Most people reading this will not have to worry about commercial use like I do, but it's never to early to be aware of the fact that fonts are protected and you need to make sure you're not using something you don't have full permission to use. So often we see something on The Net and think, oh, it must be free because they don't indicate it's not or I don't see a copyright on it. That is the furthest thing from the truth. You should never take anything unless it states you can.
