The Utopia fonts from Adobe:


Usually they are in in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1.

There are two questions (at least):

    1.  Under which conditions can they be distributed?

    2.  Is it permitted to modify them (adding support for Vietnamese
        in this case) if the filename, /FontName, and /UniqueID is
        changed in each font?
