Pharrell & Robin Thicke Have Lost Their ‘Blurred Lines’ Lawsuit Appeal

Pharrell and Robin Thicke have just lost their long-running lawsuit about 2013 their hit single ‘Blurred Lines’ beacuse The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals chose the side of Marvin Gaye’s estate, who have stated that the song was too similar to his 1977 song called ‘Got To Give It Up’. So the statement about the ruling said that Gaye’s song was “entitled to broad copyright protection because musical compositions are not confined to a narrow range of expression.” Now the ruling means that the Gaye’s estate is entitled to 50% of all royalties from the song forever, but T.I. is not liable because he didn’t contribute to the composition of the song.
