Disney and deadmau5 have settled their legal disputes
The highly-publicized legal dispute between Disney and deadmau5 has finally been settled. The lawsuit first sprung up when Zimmerman filed papers to the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board for the deadmau5 head design. Disney accused the iconic symbol to be “nearly” identical to Disney’s Mouse Ears.
“Disney and Deadmau5 have amicably resolved their dispute,” said an attorney for Zimmerman to the Hollywood Reporter.
The terms of the settlement are unclear, but may include a withdrawal of Disney’s opposition with some possible amended trademark registrations.
