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
Of course, it's not really a big deal if Disney succeeds here. All it would do is block Deadmau5 from having a registered trademark on the design, but that's neither necessary nor required. The real question is if Disney would go even further and attempt to block Deadmau5 from continuing to use the design. That... would be a lot more questionable.
