Pharrell, P!nk And Victoria’s Secret In Legal Battle Over The Popstar’s Latest Venture

American musicians, P!nk and Pharrell Williams have been engaged in a trademark lawsuit on who has the right to use the phrase P.Inc. The pop artist contends that the super-producer is not entitled to use it.

According to court records, the “So What” singer believes that Williams’ usage of the term P.Inc. may cause problems for her own commercial endeavors. Pharrell’s intended use, according to P!nk (real name Alecia Moore), is “likely to cause confusion, mistake and/or deception among consumers,” as it implies a relationship between the singer and producer when none exists.

Furthermore, the attorneys for Victoria’s Secret contend that Pharrell’s intended trademark may lead consumers into similar “confusion,” since they might mistake it for their infamous athleisure wear line.

The lawsuit’s news ties in with the ongoing legal dispute between Pharrell and his Neptunes collaborator Chad Hugo around the ownership of their output moniker. Legal filings show that Hugo and his group filed with the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, accusing Williams of trying to register trademarks for the Neptunes brand without having his name on it, in violation of trademark laws.

In more positive news, Pharrell surprised everyone by making a comeback to the music business earlier this month with “Virginia: Black Yacht Rock Vol. 1 — City of Limitless Access.”
