I thought WILL.I.AM and Pharrell Williams were cool. They are both great producers. These producers have been responsible for creating some great musical hits. Pharrell made the mistake of naming his clothing line too similar to Will.I.Am’s stage name. I’m assuming Will.I.Am and Pharrell don’t have that call/ text relationship-where a simple phone call could have resolved the issue. This situation will be handled in court because Will.I.Am filed a lawsuit and now there are a bunch of attorneys in between the two. Everybody’s rich, everyone is famous, so can’t they all just get along?
Black Eyed Peas frontman, Will.i.am, has reportedly taken legal action against Pharrell Williams, specifically, regarding his creative brand “i am OTHER.”
According to Rolling Stone, Will has filed a lawsuit against Pharrell’s brand for copyright infringement, claiming its logo is “confusingly similar” to the rapper/producer’s stage name, which also includes lowercase “i am.”
“The registration of the mark… is likely to dilute the I AM mark and the WILL.I.AM mark,” reads documents.
