One problem here is that the readme.utopia we have on CTAN is not
present in the CVS of both X.org and Xfree. Therefore the Debian
maintainer of xfonts-scalable-nonfree (which is already in non-free)
decided to not include the Utopia fonts at all. But see also:

It is quite odd that on the one hand Adobe says that all the rights are
with the X consortion, while on the other hand there is no license
information what so ever from X.org or Xfree.
