Why not just use the fonts given in like Gimp? Gimp is free and comes with a huge amount of great fonts.
Are you sure they have the same license as Gimp? Many fonts there are named MS this, MS that.....
Thanks for all the answers!
One more q: many free-font licences say that if I create a derivative from the fonts I cant use the same name and I need to include the original license.
I guess creating a bitmap from the original TTF or whatever file is a derivative work. Is it OK if I place a readme file next to my font files that says "This font is a derivative from this-and-this font, heres the original license: ....." or should I mention it in my games EULA? Thanks!
