Pharrell vs Will.i.am Law Suit War
Pharrell with the recent success is moving on towards a better future but there comes Will.i.am to the scene, and Bam a law suit. OK that doesn't make much sense but here we are talking about the dispute among the two celebs which is on the basis of 'i am' yeah seriously, they are fighting for the word like crazy, and now TMZ has reported that Dr. Seuss is also involved in this trademark war. Before we tell the whole story be sure you don't name anything with 'i am' or Will.i.am will mind it.
The bone of contention is the trademark name of will.i.am in which according to him he has a trademark on every word starting with i am or having i am. Yes I am damn serious about that. Pharrell after giving his hits "Get Lucky" & "Blurred Lines" made a Youtube channel named I Am Other and Will.i.am threatened him to take his channel down or he will have legal action against him. Pharrell took this seriously and replied back this time in the court explaining the reason why his name isn't targeting the Will.i.am context.
Just like he told Will is using the "I Am" is a Seussian way -- as a play full riff on his own name -- and to hammer home his point, he quotes from Green Eggs and Ham:
"Sam I am
I am Sam
I am Sam
Sam I am"
He has asked the judge to be lenient about it and give him a written letter stating that he could use this name, and the judge should because it isn't something to have a trademark on, i mean do you want us to stop even telling our name using 'i am' ?
