Mr. Schiavi,

I’ve read your EULA for WOFF/EOT format fonts. Ridiculous. If this is a standard practice, it’s disgusting. This EULA glorifies prostitution. It makes mopping semen at an adult book store seem like a venerable career. I suppose you might’ve garnered that I’m anti-DMCA.

Dropping $26 on a font is borderline acceptable if you enjoy the font enough. To be honest with you, I’m considering dumping your font from my site out of principle. Paying per page-view for a font license is pretty unreasonable. Honestly, you’re worse than Metallica. If someone sees code on my site and enjoys the font it’s presented in, they can seek you out and pay you. It’s free advertising. Here you are extorting people into advertising for you, and the more advertising they do for you the more you expect them to pay. Does that seem unreasonable to you when presented honestly? I’ll give you your$26 for your font for personal use, but I won’t give you any more free advertising and I’ll be replacing your font with something that doesn’t use a license that involves exchanging infant souls for currency.

Sincerely,

Red Legion

Begin Vile EULA

By downloading the Font Software or, if You purchased it not online, by installing the Font Software or by opening the package, You agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement. If You do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, do not download, install, or use the Font Software. If You have purchased Font Software in a sealed retail package and do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, return it unopened to the place of purchase. 1. Definitions "Font Software" means coded software that is accompanied by this Agreement or that You have ordered online and that generates typeface designs when used with the appropriate hard- and software, plus any and all other data including documentation provided with such software. "Licensed Unit" means installations of the Font Software that allow the design of Your Websites which have - based on any six consecutive calendar months - not more than the overall monthly average of Pageviews stated on Your invoice for the purchase of the Font Software. If no number of Pageviews is given on your invoice, the licensed number of Pageviews is 500,000 per month. If Your Websites averages (based on a period of six consecutive calendar months) at any given time in the future more than the licensed number of Pageviews per month, You must purchase an extended licence from Schiavi Design or its authorized distributors. "Use" means to design Your own personal or business Website with the typeface embodied in the Font Software and to make accessible the Font Software together with Your Website on a web server in order to enable a web browser to render the content of such a Website using the respective Font Software. Use does not include the behaviour set forth in Clause 2.2. below. "Website" as used here is a connected group of related web pages which form an entity whose content is managed by You, and which are organized under a particular domain name, including sub-domains. The Website can be viewed either over Your local area network or over the Internet. For the avoidance of doubt, web pages on sub-domains whose content is managed by other persons are deemed to be not part of Your Website. "Pageview" is each request to load a single page of each of Your Websites. Pageviews - also referred to as page impressions or page requests - must be recorded by a commonly accepted or recognized performance tracking system. Schiavi Design reserves the right to request written copies of your average Pageview reporting statistics. 2. Grant of Licence and Restrictions 2.1. Grant of Licence. Schiavi Design grants You a non-exclusive licence to Use the Font Software in a Licensed Unit for Your own personal or business purposes according to the terms of this Agreement. If the average number of Pageviews under which the Font Software is Used exceeds the amount set forth in the Licensed Unit, then You must request from Schiavi Design or its authorized distributors an appropriate licence extension covering all Pageviews; an additional fee will be charged for this licence extension. 2.2. Restriction of Use. You are not allowed to copy, distribute or make the Font Software available to third parties so that they can use it for their purposes or for purposes other than the display of Your Websites. In particular (but not limited to), You are not allowed (i) to disseminate or make available the Font Software or parts of it through any online service or a file sharing platform or (ii) to sublicense the Font Software to third parties so that they can use it for their websites (even though such websites are hosted under Your domain name), e. g. for websites in social networks, for individual online shops under a common domain name, in blogging communities, by online editors, as a design tool, etc. If You wish to use the Font Software for such purposes, You must obtain a special licence from Schiavi Design or its authorized distributors. 2.3. No Embedding. You may not embed the Font Software in any documents (e. g. pdf documents), applications or devices other than your Websites. You may not use the Font Software for other services that are rendering the fonts, e. g. pre-press, plotting, exposing, etc. If You wish to use the Font Software for such purposes, You must obtain a separate pre-press font licence from Schiavi Design or its authorized distributors. 2.4. Backup. You may make backup copies of the Font Software for archival purposes only, provided that You retain exclusive custody and control over such copies. Any backup copy of the Font Software must contain the same copyright, trademark, and other proprietary information as the original. 2.5. Modifications.

This Agreement may only be modified in writing signed by an authorized officer of Schiavi Design. 

EDIT: I’ve since ditched PragmataPro for code display and have adopted the much friendlier “DejaVu Sans Mono” font. It may not be the prettiest or the most effective, but it’s definitely invaluable.
