In April, I reported in The IPKat about how Disney and Canadian DJ Deadmau5 were in a U.S. trademark dispute over Deadmau5’s mouse head logo which Disney claims is confusingly similar to Mickey Mouse. This dispute has since escalated as Disney filed a Notice of Opposition with the USPTO’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board to request that Deadmau5’s logo be rejected registration,while Deadmau5 has made counter accusations that Disney infringed one of his songs and a number of his U.S. and international trademark registrations in an online video featuring none other than Mickey Mouse himself.
It is getting to be my favorite time of year sports-wise when U.S. college and professional football starts up again, which then transitions seamlessly into the U.S. college basketball season before bittersweetly ending with March Madness in the Spring. Sufficed to say, I am not a big baseball fan.
To commemorate this changing of the sport seasons, check out my post today on The IPKat about the U.S. trademark dispute between Canada’s only Major League Baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays, and Omaha, Nebraska’s Creighton University over Creighton’s new logo for its mascot Billie Bluejay.
