Deadmau5 and Disney are in a legal fight over who gets to wear the mouse ears

Local EDM performer and former Purrari owner Deadmau5 has, somewhat surprisingly, not been sued by Disney over his use of a cartoonish mouse-head logo during live performances and on marketing materials. Or at least, he hasn’t been sued yet. The musician tweeted on Tuesday that Disney is blocking his attempt to trademark the image in the U.S. TMZ spoke with Mr. Mau5’s lawyer, who confirmed the news, adding that the logo is already trademarked in 30 countries other than the States. Deadmau5 has said that he intends to fight Mickey and company, if necessary, but the dispute has yet to develop into a full-blown court battle.
