Happy singer Pharrell Williams and GRAMMY award winner will.i.am recently ended their legal battle over the use of the phrase “I Am.”

According to Radar Online, court documents filed on March 10 show Williams and will.i.am have come to an agreement to drop both lawsuits filed against each other.

In 2013, Pharrell tried to trademark the name, I Am Other, as apart of his brand, but former Black Eyed Peas singer will.i.am demanded Pharrell stop using it, since it was too close to his current brand, i.am.  Williams sued, then will.i.am fired back with his own lawsuit.

will.i.am also cited Pharrell’s plagiarism lawsuit with he and Robin Thicke filed by Marvin’s Gaye family against the song “Blurred Lines.
