The licensing restriction checking that Distiller applies to True Type fonts was introduced in Acrobat 4 and unleashed some spririted debate within the PDF community on whether Adobe had gone too far in trying to enforce copyrights on fonts. An article that describes this issue in detail can be found at this URL: http://www.pdfzone.com/rich/fonts1.html An official statement from Adobe on this matter may be found here: http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/2742a.htm The current version of the TrueType Math fonts are set so that editable embedding is allowed, meaning that the fonts may be embedded in documents, but may be installed only temporarily on a remote system.
