comment Is it essential to type “WWW” when our design contains URL, or is it a matter of taste by now?
To me, that is an argument not to use those new gTLDs, particularly for a domain that needs to appear in marketing. It would seem weird to me to use a new, slick gTLD which removes the need for the old fashioned ".com", and then to add the even more old fashioned "www.", just so people recognize it's a domain name.

no-www.org appears to be down at the moment, but it's still listed in Google so I guess it's temporary?

It's part of the way DNS works. Assuming you know that DNS servers are the way that a computer asks "what is the IP address of this hostname?". Well there is more than one record you can retrieve for each hostname (A, MX, and special purpose ones like PTR, TXT etc). The "A" record is the IP address for IPv4 connections and the "AAAA" record is the IP address for IPv6 connections. MX is a record of where mail for this host should be sent (allowing mail addressed to a host to go to a different IP address as general connections to this host), TXT is various text-based information, etc.

I realise this is largely the same as the other answer but I've attempted to explain it using the simplest terms I could for non-technical people, hope it's useful.

comment Segoe UI font licensing
Also their license faq seems to contradict it too, saying "We license our fonts like software" in one place, and "As long as all the devices that use the Neutraface outlines to create the [design] are licensed, this is okay"

comment Segoe UI font licensing
Some licenses may try, but it probably isn't enforceable. Note that there is actually nothing in their actual license agreement about such a restriction: houseind.com/fonts/licensing/eula - I think the page you found is just a hopeful cash grab.

comment Making a typeface – should I check if it resembles any non-free or copyrighted typefaces?
I've never heard of that rule before and like @DA01 says it doesn't make sense. Even where the design is protected by copyright, "changing 3 pixels to make it OK" sounds pretty stupid to me.

comment Is it legal to use copyrighted fonts without a license for non-profit projects?
I know this, but I don't think this is relevant to this question and I think talking about it confuses the issue. My interpretation is it's fairly clear the question is about both obtaining and use. YMMV.
