Of course the last proviso is the critical one, and is in fact hard to
honour, since if you make a font from someone else's glyph designs, and then
use it for your documents, this is but a short step from distributing it.
The intellectual property lies in the truetype strokes that make up the
glyph, so if it really is moved unmodified you run a greater risk of
violating the copyright than if you actually made serious changes.
But I stop there, since there is nothing worse than a lot of heavy-handed
