Swedish DJs rapped on knuckles by Desperate Housewives
10:54 CEST+02:00
Two Swedish DJs performing under the name of Desperate Houseguys have been reportedly stopped by Walt Disney Enterprises, who own the Desperate Housewives brand.

The US mouse house apparently complained to the Swedish Patents and Registration Office (PRV), who agreed that the names were too similar and instructed the DJs to change their moniker.

Swedish news agency TT reports that the two DJs from Malmö, southern Sweden, are indignant and claim that their name refers to the house music they play.
