I have it open in FontForge now.  I would think the appropriate place to 
look would be the Element | Font info command, which brings up a "Font 
Information" dialog.  Under "TTF Names", there are a number of fields, 
including one labeled "License", which is the Creative License v3 (as 
Lorna saw).  But I don't see a field labeled "Embeddability" (or 
similar), but then I don't see that field in the Scheherazade font 
either, and xdvipdfmx treats that as embeddable.

So I'm not sure in FontForge how to get at the embeddability information 
that xdvipdfmx (and Microsoft's font info plugin) is using.
