Sad news just in. Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams infringed on Marvin Gaye’s 1977 song “Got to Give It Up,” and must pay nearly $7.4 million.
The jury awarded the Gaye family $4 million in damages, with profits of more than $1.6 million from Williams and more that $1.76 million from Thicke. T.I., who is also featured on the No. 1 hit, was cleared of any wrongdoing.
The “Blurred Lines” sales made more than $16 million. Thicke and Williams earned over $5 million a piece, and T.I.made more than $700,000. What are you thoughts on this do you feel that the judge and the jury made the right call?
