The game of mouse and mau5 continues. Disney is responding to Deadmau5's cease and desist letter.
According to the Toronto Sun, a spokesperson for the company claims the producer's hit "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" was "appropriately licensed" for use in a Mickey Mouse "Re-Micks" cartoon short.
Deadmau5 publicly demanded that Disney take down the video last week, but the company says "there is no merit to his statement." The "Ghosts 'n' Stuff" video is still available to watch at Disney.com.
As for the legal battle over Zimmerman's attempt to trademark his Mau5head logo, Disney says they will "vigorously" protect their trademark rights. The spokesperson explains that they oppose Zimmerman's attempt to register a logo that is nearly identical to Disney's trademarks "for his commercial exploitation." They do not, however, oppose his use of the Deadmau5 costume.
