My company makes software. I hired a graphic design freelancer (and payed a fixed xxx €) to do my company's
- website design,
- software GUI design,
He used Helvetica. The parts using Helvetica will always be used rendered as bitmap (as .png or .jpg, etc.). They will be used on my website, in my software GUI, in my emails, etc.
I'll never use vector graphics (svd) nor text + embedded font on my website. I also will never need to have Helvetica installed on my local machine: everything that the freelancer gives me will be bitmap.
Do I have to pay a license for Helvetica, or don't I because that was the freelancer's work (and he already payed a license for it)?
Note: linked to this question but slightly different because of the third pary: graphic design freelancer , and because use as bitmap only.
