Robin Thicke, Pharrell & T.I. Appeal “Blurred Lines” Copyright Infringement Case

Last year, Marvin Gaye’s estate was awarded $7.4 million in their lawsuit against “Blurred Lines” creators Robin Thicke and Pharrell for its illegal sampling of Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.” The payout was later reduced to $5.3 million, though T.I. and the record labels were then added to the suit. The judge also denied the Gaye family’s request that the song be removed from distribution outlets…BUT, he did award then an ongoing royalty rate of a whopping 50% of songwriter and publishing revenues. Upon the last ruling, which included a judge dismissing the group’s appeal for a retrial, Pharrell‘s lawyer revealed plans for “exercising our further remedies and ultimately achieving clarity on the difference between inspiration and copyright infringement.” It looks like they have gone ahead with that.

Fetty Wap Cleared In Investigation Over His “Wake Up” Video At His Former High School

ifwt_Fetty

Back in June, the principal of Fetty Wap’s former high school in Paterson, New Jersey was suspended with pay, pending an investigation into how he handled the on-site filming of Fetty’s controversial music video, “Wake Up.” The video contains imagery like stripper poles, bongs, 40oz beer bottles and more, which while it’s suitable for a typical video in a club or a party, it doesn’t mesh well inside the halls of a high school – and angry parents and the township were quite vocal about that. An investigation was conducted in the months following, and the conclusion has now been announced. NJ.com reports that Fetty has been completely cleared in the matter, and that officials place the blame solely on principal Zatiti Moody.
