We definitely didn’t see this coming, but apparently Will.i.am is claiming that Pharrell is infringing on his “I AM” brand and has taken legal action against him. Hopefully with both of them being super-artists they can work things out. Here’s what Pharrell had to say about the situation.
“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.”
