Deadmau5 Settles With Disney

June 22, 2015

In September 2014, Disney filed a claim against Deadmau5.


Disney wanted to bar Deadmau5 from registering his logo as a trademark in the United States, claiming that it was too similar to their own Mickey Mouse ears logo and that it could “cause confusion” in the marketplace.

Deadmau5 and Disney also fought over Disney’s use of one of Deadmau5’s tracks in a promotional video. But now, both sides are moving on.

An attorney for Deadmau5 said, “Disney and Deadmau5 have amicably resolved their dispute,” though the terms of the settlement haven’t been declared.

Meanwhile, Deadmau5 has dropped his legal claim against the parodic stage play Deadmouse: The Musical.
