Will.i.am fighting for trademark on "I AM"

Will.i.am is going after Pharrell Williams, claiming that Pharrell's application to register the name of his new company "I am OTHER" infringes on Will.i.am's trademarks which apparently include the words "I AM."

"I am disappointed that Will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me," Pharrell told Rolling Stone. "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."

  2. Will.i.am, or Will.i.am not: that is the question:
    Whether 'tis daft in the mind to suffer
    His songs and utterings of outrageous nonsense
    Or to take harm against another troubled,
    And with opposing thumbs, end them?

  3. I do not like this trademark scam.
    I do not like it, Will.i.am.
