Many font foundaries haven't really come to terms with ebooks yet. I just asked Monotype how much a licence for including a roman and italic of one of their fonts in an ebook would be.
. For a five year licence.
To be fair, this fee covers up to five fonts, and in up to five different ebooks. I suppose if you were publishing lots of popular ebooks, £60/book/year wouldn't be completely out of the question. But it still seems very high to me.
And they did also say they're "in the process of reviewing" their ebook strategy.
