Last week, Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am. launched legal action against Pharrell Williams regarding the Neptunes super-producer’s newly launched creative brand i am OTHER. Now, Pharrell has responded to the rapper’s notice of opposition with a lawsuit. Will.i.am. initially claimed that i am OTHER was too similar to his own I AM mark, so he tried to block Pharrell from trademarking the brand for fear that it would dilute his own line of products. In the new lawsuit, Pharrell claims that his use of the words “I Am” is completely different.
will.i.am is literally trying to claim ownership over the phrase “I am” and that’s so funny to me. i am OTHER is what backs Nardwuar now so all the power to that and crush will.i.am for being a piece of shit.
