Remixes are technically derivatives of the previous work.  Much debate  
exists about how much one needs to change something so it then becomes  
your work.  In most of these cases the mouse is being placed with  
other stuff unchanged.  It would be like putting Mickey Mouse in a car  
and saying the image is your because you added the car.  One one need  
to significantly redesign the mouse such that you probably didn't  
recognize it from the original.

So I think the remixes in question are violations too.
