We have a server that allows for anyone to do processing on different vector files. One feature we are planning is to allow them to convert SVG's with text elements to paths.
In order to do this accurately, we need to have the fonts they use installed on our server. Therefore it would require us to also have some licensed fonts installed on our server.
What I'm wondering is, how does the font's license affect this?
I would think that, since our server is only a pass-through (e.g. the user of it explicitly asks to convert licensed font X), it would be the user's responsibility to make sure that the end use of the converted work is used accurately (and they hold a license).
I would imagine that our server holds the same responsibility as, say, Illustrator or Inkscape. E.g. it can replicate licensed fonts even if the end user does not own a license (even though they should).
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
