    Default deadmau5 vs Disney

    So apparently Mickey Mouse's ears are trademarked by Disney and it's is suing deadmau5 for his hat's ears. Their excuse is that it could be mistaken with Mickey Mouse's ears.
    It's really stupid when you think about it.

    A lot of companies actually do it. They'll trademark random names (for instance, names of games that are likely to be made) and when the name is used, the user has to pay zem money.

    Example:
    Company: trademarks "Nub Simulator" and just sits on it without using it for anything
    Indie game developer: "ima make a nice game that a lot of people can enjoy for free! I'll call it "Nub Simulator""
    **The game is now out on iTunes and App Store**
    Company: Sues game developer for using their trademarked name
    Indie game developer: *cry* *givez money to greedy scrubs*

    I swear if Microsoft does the same thing on Growtopia, I will fly over there, grab a figurine of the Rareware logo and beat the crap out of everyone with it.

    While saying:

    "YOU RUINED RAREWARE, NOW THIS?!"

    Microsoft can't do this to Growtopia because Growtopia is already trademarked. I think.
