I agree with Matthew on this matter. Just as CSS doesn't check if the jpg  
used for a background is copyrighted or not, it would not need to check if  
the font is licensed. It should be at the web-authors discretion to use  
legal material. However, if a DRM needs to be done, this would still be  
out of CSS's scope. Maybe a generic DRM mechanism might be put in place  
for http3.0!
