The beef between Deadmau5 and Disney has finally come to an end.
It all started when the producer applied for a trademark for his iconic mouse head in the United States, obviously leading to the movie corporation kicking up a fuss and saying it was too similar to its own logo.
The Canadian wasn’t going down without a fight, hitting back with a claim of his own, but according to an attorney working on the case, the two have settled their differences.
Although there’s no concrete information about it, Mau5’s attorney told theHollywood Reporter: “Disney and Deadmau5 have amicably resolved their dispute.”

Disney is reportedly investigating the Mau5 man’s attempt to trademark a black and white caricature of his signature mouse head.
According to Billboard, the movie corporation made the US Trademark Office aware of the investigation, which they have 90 days to fulfil, as they believe the logo’s resemblance to Mickey Mouse could be misleading.
It is believed that Deadmau5’s potential trademark, which was applied for by his Ronica Holdings Ltd, would appear on a host of products, including BMX bikes, leather goods, sporting equipment, toys, staple goods such as coffee and entertainment services.
It’s funny that the Canadian has ruffled Disney’s feathers but why the world needs a Deadmau5 branded coffee is anyone’s guess.
