A Disney representative has responded to Rolling Stone about the whole Deadmau5 thing.
Disney vigorously protects its trademark rights, and we oppose Mr. Zimmerman's attempt to register a logo that is nearly identical to our trademarks for his commercial exploitation. Our opposition is not about the use of the Deadmau5 costume. The music was appropriately licensed, and there is no merit to his statement.

Deadmau5 is trying to trademark his mouse-ear-mask-helmet thing in the US -- apparently Disney isn't too happy with that.
In the docs, Disney states its ears have been a thing for more than 60 years, and says granting Deadmau5 the trademark would damage its business in the U.S. and around the world.

Deadmau5 is launching an official app for iOS where he will charge fans $5 a month (or $45 a year) for access to exclusive music, videos, and other content.

Deadmau5 tweeted out a picture of his new "Purrari" (a Ferrari Spider 458 that's been painted with nyan cats). Guys, it's official, pop-punk is totally the wrong genre to go into.

Deadmau5 seemed to take issue with Arcade Fire throwing a few jabs EDM's way the past few weeks. During their Coachella set, Win Butler shouted out "to all the bands playing instruments this weekend" -- and the replies via Twitter from Deadmau5 range from, "arcade fire needs to settle down. some dudes devote their lives to instruments, others to electronic composition by cpu, dafuqs yer problem?" to "inb4 some fucking hipster throws a hackeysack at me." This is way cooler than when I get called out by disgraced band members on my Facebook page.

Skrillex has commented on Deadmau5's "we all press play" comment to The Daily Beast.
SkrillexListen, I’m proud of what I do and this is not directed towards Deadmau5 personally, but if you’re going to denounce something you’re a part of… the thing about DJing is it’s a platform to create a vibe,” says Skrillex. “It’s all about creating an effect. The Ramones played fuckin’ four chords. It’s about the emotion, the movement, the music you create. The ‘pushing buttons’ criticism is just missing the point. You could invalidate anything if you wanted to.

Deadmau5 has published a blog about live performances of electronic dance music titled "We All Push Play." It gives some insight into what EDM performers actually do during live shows, which seems to be a topic of hot debate at times.
From the Blogwe all hit play.

its no secret. when it comes to “live” performance of EDM… that’s about the most it seems you can do anyway. It’s not about performance art, its not about talent either (really its not) In fact, let me do you and the rest of the EDM world button pushers who fuckin hate me for telling you how it is, a favor and let you all know how it is.

Do I hear a possible Deadmau5 and Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) collaboration? A leaked version of the song "Professional Griefers" has been ripped from the livestream Deadmau5 did yesterday, during which he was working on editing/mixing vocals for the track. The vocals sure do sound a lot like Gerard. Take a listen in the replies, what do you think?

Deadmau5 recently took to tumblr to discuss his views on music.
From the Blogim passionate about music, engineering said music, and especially art… at least i certainly feel that i am. And the last thing i want to do… is take the meanings and feelings of a piece of music and have some fucking dipshit blab about lookin sexy, poppin bottles, “droppin bass”, or ANYTHING club related. which fortunately for the world *rolls eyes* makes up for 99% of the “electronic music” fad that’s apparently considered mainstream now.
