According to TMZ, the Deadmau5 logo has already been trademarked in 30 different countries, however Disney think it could damage their business if registered in the US.

This is not only legal trouble Deadmau5 has got himself into recently. Last week the world famous wind-up merchant was issued a cease & desist order by Ferrari, forcing him to change the custom badges on his infamous Nyam Cat themed ‘Purrari’.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
