Mickey Mouse owner Disney brings legal trouble to Deadmau5 with filing in opposition of the Canadian’s trademark, the iconic mouse shape / head / logo. As Deadmau5 posted on Twitter:

TMZ also reports on this subject that Disney has now filed in over whether the headgear and trademark is too similar to the Mickey Mouse logo. The company claims that granting Deadmau5 the trademark would “damage business (…) around the world”.

The documents were filed in on Tuesday, but Deadmau5 attorney Dina LaPolt told TMZ that the Canadian artist has „a trademark for it in 30 other countries including Japan, Germany, Italy and the U.K. (and) has applied through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last year“.

Deadmau5 -in his usual manner- is ready to fight back as he tweeted:

More news to come!

Interesting case… What do you think about this?
