What happens to my designs with a specific font after my rental is over, from a legal perspective?

Fontstand is a Mac OS X app that allows you to try fonts for free or rent them by the month for desktop use for just a fraction of the regular price. One-click font activation for all your OS X apps.

Damn, this is actually amazing. I've always struggled with the fact that Typekit locks your font tests to Adobe apps and haven't wanted to pay up-front cash to try out a font. This looks like it solves font licensing for good (if they can get the font foundries on board), particularly for freelancers.

@ow you can use Typekit in other apps as well (at least on a mac).

Great idea. Already started trying it out to review some type specimens for an upcoming project.

I've been using Fontstand since it launched. I've purchased several fonts for a couple projects and it is a fantastic service. The list of (growing) foundries is a who's who of amazing type designers.
