Contact Us Files Copyright Claims Against Pharrell And i am OTHER


In some confusing news, former hip-hop producer and current electro-pop star has taken legal action against Pharrell Williams and his i am OTHER brand over copyright infringement. In the suit, which was reported by Rolling Stone, will makes claims that he owns the rights to the phrase “I AM” and that OTHER’s logo is “confusingly similar” to his own.

Pharrell provided Rolling Stone with a timely response on the matter, saying, “I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me.” He continued, ”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.”

UPDATE: took to Twitter and claimed he is not suing Pharrell after all. Interesting.
