So a few days back Disney decided to file a lawsuit against Deadmau5 claiming that his mau5head mouse logo was too simliar to their Mickey Mouse logo and infringed on their rights. You can see the two images compared side to side above.
While there is obviously some similarities with the 3 circles, smile and minimalstic design, it seemed pretty insane. Also with the fact that he has registered for a trademark in 30 other countries already. Well since America is America, when he tried to apply to get it in the US, he in return is facing a potential lawsuit with Disney.
Well just an hour ago Deadmau5 unleashed onto Facebook that Disney has actually done the unthinkable, in the middle of this heated debate between the two, Disney has decided to use his popular song "Ghosts N Stuff" without permission in a new online Disney "Re-micks" video edited to some Mickey cartoons. Watch the video here. (Before it gets taken down)
Deadmau5 seems to be very confident about the situation.
Deadmau5 actually has filed a cease and decist for the unpermitted content. The mau5 has gone ahead and uploaded the actual document, see what his team has to say below.
Kygo went from being a new name at the beginning of this year to sold out tours and even just announced his international album signing with Sony Music. Fellow breakout producer Dillon Francis has established himself as one of the most notable names in EDM over the past years and is on the heels of releasing his debut studio album next month. News has just broke that the two artists have actually begun collaborating and were in the studio last night. With both artists typically messing with the slower paced BPM range, it makes sense that their styles would mesh wonderfully together. They have posted a few pictures and videos, with Dillon sharing a short preview of the actual song as well!
Here is the first clip of the song, a slow paced melody filled heater in the making:
Here is a video of Dillon joking with Kygo in the studio:
