Questions about Adobe Fonts (and Gadugi in particular)

Hi, I have some questions about Adobe Fonts, and Gadugi in particular. My Adobe plans include FM2019 and the 20 GB Photography plan. My questions:

1. I believe the Photography plan means I have access to Adobe Fonts. Is this correct?

2. I have been using the Gadugi font in FM2019 for a book I plan to self-publish soon on KDP.

  (a) Is Gadugi an Adobe Font? (I have a feeling it is not, but would like clarification.)

  (b) If not, does this mean I don't have the required license to use it in a self-published book? 

 

Or another way of asking the last question (2 (b)): If I can use a font in FM2019, does this mean I have a license to use it in a self-published book (even if it is not part of Adobe Fonts)?

 

Thanks.

-DerekM

All Adobe (and other) apps can make use of the fonts already in your system, which may be there because

- they came with the system

- they came with an app

- you purchased or downloaded them

- you copied from another computer

You need to know how it got into your system before you can know what the license allows.

Thanks, that clarifies things for me quite a bit. So, with a bit of detective work, I can see that the font in question is installed with the OS (Windows 64), and the restrictions are based on the information on this page. From there, I believe that the following section applies to my legal use of this font:

And because FM (i.e. the application) is not used for home, student or non-commercial use, then I can use the font in my upcoming print book.

 

That's my interpretation; does this make sense to anyone else who has a better understanding of these issues?
