Deadmau5's message to Disney: "Lawyer up, Mickey."
Looks like the children's entertainment conglomerate did - and the two were able to settle a dispute over rights to, what has turned out to be, a rather sought-after trademark - mouse ears.
Who smells a rat?
Okay, perhaps not something most would bicker over in the courts - but according to CBC, the dispute is already months long. It began when Disney pursued Deadmau5 in hopes of blocking him from donning his signature mouse ears - a mark he's been using since 2005 - on the grounds it too closely resembled the famous Mickey Mouse's own ears. Trouble is: Deadmau5 already owns the rights to the rodent ears in 30 countries around the world.
Though terms have yet to be disclosed and details remain at large, Deadmau5's lawyer did reveal the two sides managed to end the disagreement "amicably."
What are mouse ears between friends, anyhow?
