‘Blurred Lines’ Will Costs Thicke and Williams $5 Million
You remember that really catchy, toe-tappin' song Blurred Lines from Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams? You remember when Marvin Gaye's estate said "yeah, there's a reason that song is so catchy...it's because Marvin Gaye already did it back in the late 70's! Yeah, it sounds just like his song Got To Give It Up!Ya' know what, I think we're gonna sue you!"
I'm paraphrasing that part, but you get the gist. That was five years ago, and that suit has finally been settled. A judge recently ordered Thicke and Williams to pay the Gaye estate $5 million for copyright infringement.
Check out the video below...it's a great comparison of the two songs.Take a listen and make your own decision...although at this point is doesn't really matter what you and I think...the judge has already ruled.
