Can I use Wingdings or other symbol fonts for my design?

IN Contest

You can, but again under certain conditions.

– You can use symbol in logo, illustration or button/icon designs. But remember that they are considered stock art and should be declared.
Symbols in logo, illustration or button and icon are considered as stock art and designer should declare them to the customer.

– The same rules apply to wingdings, dingbats, other glyph and even font. They should be modified uniquely by designers because they can’t be copyrighted unless the designers pay for it.

– Recycle symbol used publicly are able to be used, but remember it still can’t be copyrighted unless it has been modified heavily.
