Summary description: utopia fonts license clarification
License type: dfsg

Announcement text: 
I am happy to announce that Adobe has graciously clarified the licensing
terms of the Utopia font family, making it clear that the fonts can be
modified, and such modifications can be redistributed (this was
previously ambiguous, unfortunately).  Therefore, the Utopia fonts can
now be considered free (as in freedom), and will be included on the next
TeX Live.

I have updated the license terms in the original Utopia afm and pfb
files, and the new files are available at http://tug.org/fonts/utopia,
and soon from CTAN:fonts/utopia.  The actual font information (glyphs,
metrics, etc.) is entirely unchanged.

For those who are concerned about such things, the precise license terms
from Adobe and other legal information is also available at

Happy typesetting,
