"The House of the Scorpion", which I have on my Paperwhite, has Bembo embedded as the body text and Trajan Pro embedded for the chapter heads. When I switch the font to Palatino, both publisher fonts are switched out for Palatino.

This leaves me thinking that Amazon isn't letting on to their true operating policy for embedded fonts, as they do allow specific fonts for body text in certain circumstances.

Perhaps the idea is to protect themselves from amateurish font choices.

But I'm getting away from my original query, as I'd still like to know if Amazon has anything against open font licences.
