Mobile fonts question

I'd like to donate fonts to anyone who are working on mobile phone UI's, but
I don't know if it is legal.

A while ago I made a two font sets, the Nokia Series 40 and the Nokia Series
60. These are the non-anti aliased fonts used in J2ME applications.
The font sets were recreated by me (using FontLab) and I have been using
them to create pixel-correct user interfaces for for the small and medium
size screens. (The new anti aliased fonts for large screens are available
from Nokia)

Does anyone know if it is legal to distribute these?
