I have a script that I send to a client as a run only Application. It can reference a specific font which the client would have to download and install themselves to use.
Looking at the license for this font - released under Apache License v2.0 - I believe I may be able to include the font file (unaltered) inside the applications resources folder and give an acknowledgment of usage.
I have a few questions which I’d appreciate some guidance on though since this is a new area for me:
Firstly, does the above check out for an Applescript applet? The Apache License 2.0 would seem to allow for the usage I’ve described.
I understand that I must include an Acknowledgment of the usage by including the Apache License 2.0 text somewhere. It’s perhaps common to include a HTML file with the listed open source software used and their applicable licenses.
What do you think would be the best way to achieve this with an AppleScript application? I do have an About dialog which comes up from
on_run but it’s obviously quite limited in what it’s able to do. Does it sound acceptable to add a 3rd button labeled ‘Acknowledgments’ and have this do an
open location on the URL of the HTML file also from the resources folder?
