Explicit permission from the copyright owner is required to legally
redistribute:

http://kb.indiana.edu/data/ahmf.html
http://www.cs.tut.fi/~jkorpela/webcopyr.html

If the copyright owner has no problems with redistribution, they would
most likely include a simple license which permits redistribution so
that people wouldn't have to violate the law to do just that.

For instance:
http://corefonts.sourceforge.net/eula.htm
