Pharrell Williams Bites Back / Files Lawsuit Against Will.I.Am

Published: Tuesday 2nd Jul 2013 by David

Last week, Will.i.am saw his quiet attempt to file a lawsuit against Pharrell Williams foiled when US press uncovered the suit, and subsequently reported it to the world at large.

Unfortunately, despite trying to deny the suit ever existed, Will.i.am has now found himself scoring a taste of his own medicine…now the ‘Mr.Me Too’ star  has filed a lawsuit against him.

Full story below…

According to BBC Newsbeat, this week saw Pharrell take legal action against Will- asking a US court to rule that his ‘I Am Other’ venture does not infringe upon the ‘I am‘ trademark reportedly owned by the ‘Don’t Phunk With My Heart’ producer.

In this claim, Williams allegedly exposes the producer to be a liar, claiming the ‘Black Eyed Peas’ frontman  did send letters to him, demanding he stop using ‘I am’ branding- despite Will’s claim that no such letters existed last week.

Newsbeat explained:

“Pharell’s trademarks do not feature full stops between the I and the am, while will.i.am’s do, says the lawsuit.

Pharrell William’s lawsuit also says that will.i.am’s trademark for “I AM” covers clothing and is “relatively weak” because similar trademarks already exist.”

  5. Really? July 2, 2013

    I read the That Grape Juice articles all the time, but I have to say this is very poorly written and very confusing. No I am not an idiot. I am a graphic design/marketing professional, but it seems as though the person writing this article was half asleep. It’s all over the place. Just food for thought.

      I think your point was taken because it’s been edited.

  7. KELLY ROWLANDS BIGGEST HIT WAS CRAZY IN LOVE July 2, 2013

    Kelly Rowland needs to sue beyonce for Copyright infringement for stealing the UH-OH hook in her Cant Nobody Song. Kelly shouldn’t be afraid, that hook UH-OH hook she wrote in 2002, beyonce stole in 2003 for crazy in love …

    ….
    when Latoya and Octavia was kicked out of DC for no real reason they had to sue to get their money and credits (it wasn’t given to them)……

    ..Kelly needs to file a suit, beyonce is famous for that hook that she stole she just did a slow version of it words sound alike .


    beyonce wore white-tank top/jean shorts like Kelly did and danced in the street like her (to really make a fool of her)
    …………………sue the b****,dumbass…..

    • KELLY ROWLANDs BIGGEST HIT WAS CRAZY IN LOVE July 2, 2013

      Oh no, oh no,…. can’t nobody do it like me
      Uh uh, oh no, ….can’t nobody do it like me
      Oh no, oh no,…. can’t nobody do it like me
      Uh uh …..and get right down to it like me

      ..
      Oh no, oh no,
      Uh uh, oh no,
      Oh no, oh no,
      Uh uh, na na na, na na na, na NO

      they knew young Kelly would not challenge it out of fear of not being in Destiny Child (look at octavia/latoya’s career)

      beyonce Uh-oh owes Kellys punk ass millions of dollars and credits for everytime that b**** said UH-oh for every album, sale dvd, radio spin,
      …..
      Pharrell is not scared to collect what he feels is his. Latoya Luckett got her money,

      Kelly that thief is spending your cash smiling in your face with a knife in your back..

    • Darianna Jones July 2, 2013

      Hun, you tried it this morning. Her “uh ohs” sound nothing like the “uh ohs” from Crazy In Love. It’s a different rhythm and everything lol
