Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams lose ‘Blurred Lines’ case vs. Marvin Gaye’s family

An L.A. jury ruled in favor of Marvin Gaye’s family and found Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams guilty of copyright infringement on the track “Blurred Lines.” They were ordered to pay $7.3 million.

The jury said the song ripped off Marvin Gaye’s #1 hit “Got to Give It Up.”

T.I. who rapped on the track, was not liable for copyright infringement according to the jury.

The song was Robin Thicke’s single with Pharrell Williams as producer, and was a huge hit in 2013.

The case can take years of appeals however, so this is not yet the end.
