No #BLURREDLINES when it comes to copyright infringement in the case of "Blurred Lines" vs. the Marvin Gaye estate. Today in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Gaye family ran a victory lap after producer Pharrell Williams and singer Robin Thicke challenged a previous verdict made in 2015.
. . .
The ruling stated that “Got to Give It Up” was "entitled to broad copyright protection because musical compositions are not confined to a narrow range of expression." In conclusion, the Gaye' estate is entitled to 50 percent of all royalties from "Blurred Lines," along with a payment of $3.1 million in actual damages, plus profits of $1.7 million against Thicke and an approximate $357,600 against Williams.
. . .
T.I., who guested on the hit song, was not personally liable in this case and will not owe the Gaye estate any monies.
. . .
What do you think of the verdict? Sound off 🔊 below.
