Will.I.Am is taking legal action against Pharrell Williams!

According to reports, Will.I.Am recently filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Williams over the use of the “I AM” phrase. The Black Eyed Peas frontman claims he owns the rights to the logo and Williams’ production company, titled ‘I am OTHER,’ is “confusingly similar.”

“The registration of the mark . . . is likely to dilute the I AM mark and the WILL.I.AM mark,” the legal documents reads.

In response, Williams denies the claims and says he’s “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,” he adds. “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.”

Will.I.Am’s camp have yet to release a statement on the matter.
