I saw an article on the newspaper about an event called Letras Latinas, a sort of typographic convention, and it said that there would be about 300 fonts displayed, and that the public would be able to download them.
Guess what, you already can! (you have to dig around a little, though) In fact, there´s several hundred fonts, if you bother going to the author´s websites.
In the past, I obtained rights to distribute some 400 fonts just by asking the authors. These lack license information, but I may do it again, if I have the time.
Some are pretty good. For example, Escritura Px is a nice bitmap font, and some of the "text fonts" are really not bad (brasilia, for example).
