Mouse grouse settled in house

The real mau5
Less than 24 hours after tweeting about a cease and desist letter he had sent to a Toronto production called Deadmouse: The Musical, Deadmau5 has revealed the legal dispute is already over. "The dead mouse musical debacle is settled. They have just put up a disclaimer and called it a parody. Moving along now," he tweeted on the evening of Wednesday June 17. According to the musical's website, Deadmouse: The Musical is about "a mouse who wants to be a house DJ but is discriminated against for being a mouse.... Think Ratatouille meets Book of Mormon." The lead character is named Joel Zimmermouse, somewhat similar to Deadmau5's real name - Joel Zimmerman. It also includes other parody characters, including David Goudda and Avicheese - hohoho!  Zimmerman's letter claimed intellectual property violations against the production. The letter was sent to the Al Green Theater, where the musical is being staged.
