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.
