Looks like Deadmau5 and the mighty Disney might be heading to court over Disney's effort to block Joel from getting a trademark in the U.S:
"In the docs, Disney states its ears have been a thing for more than 60 years, and says granting Deadmau5 the trademark would damage its business in the U.S. and around the world. But Deadmau5 doesn't seem bothered by Disney's filing ... telling us he won't be bullied, and is prepared to fight to protect his rights to his property."
Meanwhile Deadmau5, never one to back down from a fight, went on Twitter and told Mickey Mouse to "lawyer up":
landed home to some interesting news: looks like Disney officially just filed in opposition of my trademark... lawyer up mickey.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) September 3, 2014
Disney thinks you might confuse an established electronic musician / performer with a cartoon mouse. That's how stupid they think you are.— deadmau5 (@deadmau5) September 3, 2014
Who will prevail? Time will tell.
