(CNN) – Disney is in a legal fight with Deadmau5 over the electric musician's logo.

Disney claims his famous headgear is too similar to its Mickey Mouse ears symbol.

In a statement, Deadmau5's attorney said the artist applied to register the Mau5head with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last summer, but Disney just filed an opposition on Tuesday.

The attorney says the Mau5head is trademarked in 30 countries worldwide, and the musician “will not be bullied by Disney.”

Deadmau5 also lashed out on his Twitter account, saying, “Disney thinks you might confuse an established electronic musician/performer with a cartoon mouse. That's how stupid they think you are.

So far, there has been no comment from Disney.
