Pharrell & will.i.am Reportedly Settle Lawsuit Over "i am OTHER"

Pharrell and will.i.am are apparently in the process of settling the legal dispute outside of court.

Pharrell and will.i.am have been in the midst of possibly the silliest legal battle of all time over the last year or so. The disagreement began with will.i.am's claim that Pharrell's "i am OTHER" title was "confusingly similar" to his own artist name.

Pharrell responded cleverly to the Black Eyed Peas frontman's claims in the following statement.

"I AM disappointed that Will, 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."

Regardless, Skateboard P was forced to launch a lawsuit on Will in order to keep the rights to his brand name, and Will subsequently countersued.

The two have apparently decided to reach a settlement over the dispute outside of court. Details are scarce, but The Hollywood Reporter says the two are in the process of drafting an agreement right now.

More details to come as they arrive.
