In what has to be one of the weirdest situations I’ve ever written about, Ferrari has apparently sent a Cease & Desist notice to ‘Purrari’ owner Deadmau5. I didn’t even know that they could do that — I thought that once you owned something, you owned it and could do whatever you want. But I suppose when you’re as big a brand as either Ferrari or Deadmau5, the rules change a bit.

The wrap has since been removed from the ‘Purrari’. A sad day indeed…

It seems that there wasn’t any real animosity between the two entities, and it’s still not entirely clear whether the wrap was removed to comply with the C&D or just in order to sell the 458.

UPDATE: Deadmau5 Gets Offered a Replacement Nyan Cat GTR by Nissan
