All Adobe fonts that are supplied with CC are licenced for use in Reflowable and FXL ePubs and are therefore "free" in the sense they are part of your subscription.

Be very careful here, though. As it is stated in Adobe's font licensing

https://helpx.adobe.com/fonts/using/font-licensing.html

 

Can the fonts be embedded in PDFs and ebooks? Can they be used in printed books?

Yes. The fonts are licensed for embedding in any ebook format which protects the font data such as EPUB, iBooks, Kindle (mobi), Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite (DPS), and PDF.

Any ebook authoring workflow which requires the user to move the font files themselves is not allowed under the Terms of Use, however.

 

To me, that means the font must be PROTECTED in an epub, which means either Adobe or IDPF obfuscation is applied to encrypt the embedded font files, in order to prevent a user to unzip the epub file and extract the working font files.

 

I might be wrong, but it may be better to be rather safe than sorry. If you are still unsure what to do, contact Adobe.

Thank you very much Rayek.

I could fix it following your guidelines about Sigil and Obfuscation fonts.

Finally I can breath (-;
