The legal team says that while "Hasbro appreciates enthusiasm and support of it's many My Little Pony fans, it must protect it's intellectual property rights."
It also claims that Jan Animation's work "Creates a likelihood of dilution and of confusion with respect to Hasbro's authorisation or sponsorship of or association with your animation series."
@JanAnimation's said "I know a good amount of disappointment is going on right now. I can only thank you guys for the support and ask you to wait for more info." and "10days were given to contact the lawyer who sent the message regarding the situation. The removal had to be done after that."
A check of Jan Animation's YouTube Channel shows the videos have been taken down.
ShadyVox, the voice of Button Mash, made a short statement on Vocaroo saying that while they "would be in the right" of legal challenge under Fair Use, they didn't want to because "Jan has a lot of future wishes" and that "I (ShadyVox) don't want to ruin that for him."
He went on to say that they were going to release an "information video" and that "because of the circumstance, Button's Adventures is going to have to stop entirely."
Speaking on what they would do with what they had a legal allowance with, ShadyVox said: "We intend to make a new IP and go from there were we will be in full complete creative ownership about everything we do."
"We are going to take the scripts that we made for BA (Button's Adventure) and then adapt them so they work with this new IP."
He made it clear that they own the character Button but "not the style" and they were going to work on that.
