We need this in order to distribute PDFs that include Japanese characters.  See CONNECTORS-387
for more details.  The font license (English version) is as follows:

IPA Font License Agreement v1.0

The Licensor provides the Licensed Program (as defined in Article 1 below) under the terms
of this license agreement ("Agreement").  Any use, reproduction or distribution of the Licensed
Program, or any exercise of rights under this Agreement by a Recipient (as defined in Article
