Tell me where did you get that logo from? Rapper Will.i.am is taking legal action against singer Pharrell for having a logo “confusingly similar” to the one for Will.i.am’s brand “I AM.”
Will.i.am says that the “Blurred Lines” collaborator’s logo for his new brand “I Am OTHER,” is used on clothing and items in a way that mimic’s the rappers own “I AM” mark.
Rolling Stone obtained Will.i.am’s court documents that claim, “The registration of the mark … is likely to dilute the I AM mark and the Will.i.am mark.”
Pharrell’s lawyer filed a response to Will.i.am’s claims, denying the rappers allegations.
The rapper told Rolling Stone “I am disappointed that Will.i.am, 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.”
Will.i.am’s representatives have not made any statements, nor have they responded to press requests for comments.
