Copyright could mean Creative Commons copyright licenses. I didn't
reply on Friday, but read the OP's mail and read both, the Debian and
Ubuntu policies regarding creative commons requirements, for e.g. sound
fonts. The copyright shouldn't be an issue, if just the name should be
mentioned, e.g. new-england-conservatory-sound-font. Camouflaged
advertising might be an issue or at least ethical aspects could be
a problem, I doubt that monsanto-sound-font or nestle-sound-font are
wanted, but a new-england-conservatory-sound-font might be ok.

However, is there such a sound font already available?

Data bases with sounds could be helpful, but there are already several
data bases with needed sounds available and nobody has the time to make
a sound font from the available sounds.

I'm not an Ubuntu (Studio) team member, just interested in sharing
help, software, whatsoever ...

Has anybody ever made a sound font? If so, what software did you use
to make the sound font?
