What about Helvetica?
In what file did you find this license notice? Do you have a url?
the "without fee" may mean it can't be used in commercial fonts?
Or does it just mean Adobe / DEC won't charge you a fee?
So far the responses have focused on the first interpretation (which
would clearly make it nonfree), but in my experience in discussions with
Adobe and others the second interpretation is definitely the one intended.
The other unfortunate problem is that it does not explicitly give
permission to distribute modified copies. Permission to distribute,
yes, permission to modify, yes,but not necessarily both together -- this
precise point has been at issue before.
