Re: can Libertine fonts be embedded in non-gpl application?

Well none of us are lawyers here, and you should not rely on anything
written on a public mailing list when there is a risk of a trial. And when
the wording of a license is unclear, there is definitely one.

If I had to embed a font in an application I certainly wouldn't start with
a GPL font but look at Droid or another font with lax licensing (though
the licensing would need to be double-checked too).

That, or ask the author of the font I selected for an explicit authorization.

(BTW I sure hope no one is going to try the embedding trick in any app
Fedora ships, it's enough of a legal pain with detached files)
