I knew the day would come when Disney would have a problem with Deadmau5 (Dead mouse) . I am just shocked that it took so long. Disney has said that they are not happy with the recent trademark registration for Deadmua5.

Disney has been granted 3 months to investigate and file their legal response.
What do you think? Are they the same or is Disney over-reacting?
