You might want to check out the Arphic Public License[1], which while
not GPL compatible, it still is DFSG-compliant. I'm surprised nobody has
mentioned it yet.

Arphic is a Taiwanese font foundry that released a set of high quality
Chinese TrueType fonts under the APL a while ago.  These fonts are
distributed in Debian; look for the ttf-arphic-* packages.
