Pharrell’s and Will.i.am’s legal battle wages on. According to TMZ, the married N.E.R.D. is reportedly seeking Will.i.Am’s countersuit to be thrown out.

In court docs filed this past summer, the Black Eyed Peas frontman issued a cease-and-desist order by making claims that Pharrell’s YouTube channel i am OTHER closely mirrors his brand. “I am disappointed that will, a fellow artist, would file a case against me,” he told Rolling Stone in June.”I am someone who likes to talk things out and, in fact, I attempted to do just that on many occasions.”

Furthermore, Pharrell alleges that Will.i.am has a history of copyright infringement, citing nearly a dozen lawsuits including song stealing. He also wants to be able to use the “I Am Other” name without legal difficulties and for Will to pay his lawyers.
