Red Hat is not necessarily the sole licensor of Liberation serif fonts
in their current form, and I can only speak for Red Hat here, but from
Red Hat's perspective:

(a) you can use the Liberation fonts in an ePub file,

(b) you can sell the resulting ePub e-book under whatever terms you
want, except that the Liberation Fonts themselves remain licensed
under the Liberation Fonts license, and

(c) we consider it unnecessary under the Liberation Fonts license to
specify any information in the e-book copyright page.
