Childsplay 3.1 and earlier versions distributes the arial.ttf font.

According to wikipedia:

Arial is a proprietary typeface to which Monotype Imaging owns all rights, including software copyright and trademark rights (under U.S. copyright law, Monotype cannot legally copyright the shapes of the actual glyphs themselves). Its licensing terms prohibit derivative works and free redistribution.

Free alternatives like Liberations Sans exist which could be used as a drop-in-replacement.
