For Mac OS X, one can use the bundled version of Baskerville using xelatex:

\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\begin{document}
This is set in the version of \emph{Baskerville} bundled w/ \textbf{\emph{Mac} OS X}.
\end{document}

No need to worry about font conversion of licensing issues.
