There was a recent discussion WRT to the use of GPL fonts on this list. Other 
than that, you will note in the licence for your fonts what the author allows 
you to do with them.

However, PDFs and fonts go hand in hand and I would hazard a guess to say most 
font licences would allow *you* to embed fonts you obtained *legally* and use 
them for such a purpose. If theres a real issue in some situation, convert to 
outlines and be done with it.
