[REPORT] LA jury awards Marvin Gaye’s family $7.4 million in ‘Blurred Lines’ suit

A Los Angeles jury on Tuesday awarded nearly $7.4 million to Marvin Gaye’s family over a lawsuit that focused on the similarities between Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams’ 2013 song “Blurred Lines” and Marvin Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give It Up,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

Gaye’s family contends that several parts of the song “Blurred Lines” were copied from “Got to Give It Up,” a violation of U.S. copyright laws. Thicke and Williams claim Gaye’s song had no influence when they wrote and produced “Blurred Lines.”
