Pharrell Countersues will.i.am! Cites Dr. Suess In 'I Am' Lawsuit!

Pharrell does not like this will.i.am lawsuit.

He does not like it in a house, he does not like it with a mouse.

He does not like it so much that he's suing right back! And he's citing the case of Dr. Suess v. Green Eggs & Ham as his legal basis!

OK, not exactly! But since this case does come down to word usage, specifically Pharrell's use of the words I AM in his YouTube channel I Am Other, Dr. Suess really did come up!

Pharrell said in his suit that will.i.am is using the phrase "I am" in a Suessian way, as in "Sam I am, I am Sam" from Green Eggs And Ham. He then says:

"In contrast, the I Am Other mark means 'I am something else,' leaving what that 'else' is to the imagination of the consumer. It certainly does not mean 'I am Will.'"

Oh, the places they'll go. Mostly to court.

To figure this nonsense out once and for all!

    I love Pharrell what a clever argument haha, 'Will.I.Am-an asshole' needs to eat a fat slice of humble pie and back off. Not to mention, he gets a law suit every so often for supposedly stealing other people's beats so he should know how well these things go over.

    "I Am" is one of the names of the Christian god… so I'm pretty sure both of them need to be taken to court… by god.

    Does anybody read the Bible any more?

    Dr. Suess is better fiction than the bible
