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.

1500. 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.
