Am I allowed to include the (unmodified) Ubuntu font in my game and distribute it together? The situation is, that I like the font, but because the game is written in python, it also runs under windows and there nobody has this font installed. I would put it in a resources folder as I downloaded it (with license, and so on).

Thanks for your response :)

From http://font.ubuntu.com/about/:

Both the final font Truetype/OpenType files and the design files used to produce the font family are distributed under an open licence and you are expressly encouraged to experiment, modify, share and improve. The typeface is sans-serif, uses OpenType features and is manually hinted for clarity on desktop and mobile computing screens.

Next step: consult a lawyer about the licence and what it allows.

    I think consulting a lawyer wouldn't be necessary after carefully reading the license once.
