Hip-hop stars Pharrell Williams and will.i.am have settled their trademark dispute. The two artists fell out after Williams and his partners attempted to register 'I Am Other' with the U.S. Trademark Office for an online venture. The Black Eyed Peas star objected last summer (13), because he felt the moniker was too similar to his I.Am.Symbolic company. Williams filed a lawsuit in New York federal court seeking a declaratory judgment of trademark non-infringement. However, the two parties have since managed to settle out of court and they have informed a judge that they had reached an agreement in principle. The two sides are now drafting the settlement agreement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
