Will.i.am Taking Pharrell To Court?
It has been reported that will.i.am is taking Pharrell Williams to court over his brand called i am OTHER. The Black Eyed Peas frontman claims that Pharrell’s brand is ‘confusingly similar’ to his own, adding that he owns the copyright to the phrase I AM, according to official court documents. Will reportedly plans to prevent Pharrell from using the brand on clothing or any products that are similar to Will’s...
Pharrell has denied the claims, telling Rolling Stone: “I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me. I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions.
“I am surprised in how this is being handled and I am confident that Will’s trademark claims will ultimately be found to be as meritless and ridiculous as I do.”
According to Rap-Up.com, Will later took to Twitter to deny that he was suing the N.E.R.D producer.
