  1. The Red Hat Product contains font software which generates typeface designs ("Monotype Font Software").  You may not alter Monotype Font Software for the purpose of adding any functionality which such Monotype Font Software did not have when delivered to you as part of the Red Hat Product.  You may not embed Monotype Font Software into a document which is distributed as a commercial product in exchange for a fee or other consideration.  (For example, End-Users shall not embed Monotype Font Software into an electronic book that is offered to the public for a fee.)
