Uh oh. The Walt Disney Company is in a legal battle with DJ Deadmau5 over the use of his famous mouse helmet. Deadmau5 is trying to trademark the helmet in the US and Disney has filed documents stating that the helmet is too similar to the Mickey Mouse ears logo.

Deadmau5 has trademarked the helmet in a large number of other countries over the last 10 years, and he’s ready to fight back with Disney about his US trademark.

Deadmau5 posted to Twitter:

Disney thinks you might confuse an established electronic musician / performer with a cartoon mouse. That’s how stupid they think you are.

Yikes!
