I always wondered how embedding fonts worked from a copyright
perspective. I use my favorite special font that I purchased for my
own use, then I create a document that uses (and embeds) that font in
It depends on a font license.
OpenType specification has metadata to limit font usage, for example to
set it as "preview and print" but not "installable". These metadata may
be insufficient when the font license regulates usage in more details.
IANAL, "fair use" principle can give you some rights in some countries.
What I would like to see in LibreOffice is a warning bar listing fonts
used in a document but not available on a system. I am not deeply into
this, but my guess is it would be hard to implement as font substitution
happens down the system, bellow LibeOffice.
