The battle is now on! Back in April, Deadmau5 was being investigated by Disney for infringing on their copyright. Disney now filed to block Deadmau5’s trademark in the United States which Joel applied for last year.

As we all know, Deadmau5’s logo appears on everything – his label, his artwork, and even the helmet he wears. Disney’s logo appears on everything. Deadmau5 is up for the fight.
Yesterday, Joel shot back at Disney by sending over a cease and desist. According to Joel, Disney used his song, “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” without his permission. Here is the video below (unless they took it down already):
The battle is on! Deadmau5 is ready to take on the major corporation, Disney. The saddest part is this tweet and how true it is:
I wish disney wasnt such a "corperation". We could have done great things together.
