They have a source iso to download, and it contains a license file with this at the top.

The Plan 9 software is provided under the terms of the
Lucent Public License, Version 1.02, reproduced below,
with the following notable exceptions:

1. No right is granted to create derivative works of or
   to redistribute (other than with the Plan 9 Operating System)
   the screen imprinter fonts identified in subdirectory
   /lib/font/bit/lucida and printer fonts (Lucida Sans Unicode, Lucida
   Sans Italic, Lucida Sans Demibold, Lucida Typewriter, Lucida Sans
   Typewriter83), identified in subdirectory /sys/lib/postscript/font.
   These directories contain material copyrights by B&H Inc. and Y&Y Inc.

2. The printer fonts identified in subdirectory /sys/lib/ghostscript/font
   are subject to the GNU GPL, reproduced in the file /LICENSE.gpl.

3. The ghostscript program in the subdirectory /sys/src/cmd/gs is
   covered by the Aladdin Free Public License, reproduced in the file
   /LICENSE.afpl.

There is a free software version of ghostscript, and if someone yanked out the font's, then it would be free. Plan9 people obviously don't want this, so I think the page should be delete, but I'll leave this until someone else has a chance to weigh in. --IanK (talk) 05:08, 29 October 2016 (EDT)
