Dropped in Debian version 0.4.3 because of unclear license. Reintroduced
in version 0.4.9-1 ("new upstream release"), license in copyright file
is now GPL-2+-BY-Font. I haven't searched for more information about this.

The COPYING file in 0.4.8 says:

This package collects Thai scalable fonts available in free licenses,
and maintains and distributes them under GNU General Public License with
original authors' permissions.

Loma is listed as GPL-2+-BY-Font.

Debian changelog doesn't mention a problem, license is GPL-2+-BY-Font.

Same comment as with Loma.

The license from Bitstream seems similar to the Open Font License, which
is free.
