Maybe you can convince him to only sell designs that do not violate copyright/licensing laws. It can be done. Customers can often help other people change things like that.

It is important to note that one CAN acquire legally done designs. Any reputable source will be able and willing to provide the documentation needed to show that they are licensed to digitize and sell the design.

Jolson's Designs also has the Waltography font which was the original name for the Disney font. also has the Disney Font (under Concord Collections) as does Rivermill. Those were just a few which turned up during a quick search. I am sure there are other sites as well.

I am not where I can look at my notes or check websites, but I know at least one of the ones mentioned is also banned. Also, I know the mouse ears are licensed/copyright protected but the rules are a bit hazy on the font. Still, it is not one I would use -- ever.
