That is false. If there's no IP, there's no need for a license.
To my knowledge, the encoding of a font is not subject to copyright.
If, therefore, someone were to take a font that was in the public domain
and change the encoding to one he or she created, he or she would not
have a copyright in the resulting font and would have no legal power to
control its distribution and use.
I might of course be wrong about the copyright status of encodings, but
speculation as to where the IP lies is highly relevant.
