will.i.am Files Copyright Lawsuit Against Pharrell Williams
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 09.20.2013



will.i.am has filed a lawsuit at Pharrell Williams over a YouTube channel that he says violates his copyright. TMZ reports that the Black Eyed Peas member has countersued Williams after Williams filed a suit asking a judge to protect his right to his YouTube channel name "I AM OTHER."

Williams' lawsuit was filed initially after will.i.am sent Williams a cease and desist letter, demanding that he stop using "I AM" because he has a copyright for it. Now, will's countersuit is asking for damages and arguing that it will confuse people, as the two are on the same record label and have similar musical styles.

will.i.am's countersuit notes that Williams has a history of copyright issues, including a record label called Star Trak Entertainment and the current lawsuit filed against him and Robin Thicke by Marvin Gaye's family for allegedly performing a "stylistic infringement" on Gaye's "Got to Give it Up" for "Blurred Lines."
