Deadmau5 Accuses Disney of Copyright Infringement

UPDATE: Disney has responded to Deadmau5’s cease and desist letter. “Disney vigorously protects its trademark rights, and we oppose Mr. Zimmerman’s attempt to register a logo that is nearly identical to our trademarks for his commercial exploitation,” a Disney spokesperson told Rolling Stone. “Our opposition is not about the use of the Deadmau5 costume. The music was appropriately licensed, and there is no merit to his statement.”
Earlier this week, we reported that deadmau5 is being sued by Disney for attempting to trademark his iconic mouse logo. Now, the Toronto DJ has fought back with a cease and desist that probably nobody except for his team saw coming.
Deadmau5 claims he never gave Disney permission to use his song “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” for their “Re-Micks” cartoon short that features old footage of the Mickey Mouse cartoon (see below):

Mau5 is clearly in war-mode, as he not only sent the letter to Disney’s legal team but also made it public on Twitter to his three million followers:
