Disney Vs. Deadmau5 for Logo Trademark
So…the always controversial deadmau5 just got himself into some more legal limbo. He had a cease and desist sent to him by Ferrari last week and now, the big ole’ super huge Disney Corporation has sent Mr. mau5 and his lawyers an opposition filing to deadmau5’s filing of a trademark in the United States.
deadmau5 applied for a trademark of his name and logo last year and Disney just filed their concerns with mau5’s logo looking a little too similar to the Mickey Mouse logo and character. deadmau5′s lawyer, Dina LaPolt, mentioned that deadmau5 has trademarks filed in 30 countries.
This man can’t stay away from controversy. Read deadmau5’s tweet below…
