Attorneys for the family of late musician Marvin Gaye have asked a federal judge to block the sale, distribution and performance of the hit 2013 song “Blurred Lines,” after last week’s jury verdict that the tune infringed on Gaye’s 1977 chart-topper “Got to Give It Up.”

Jurors awarded three of Gaye’s children, who inherited rights to the Gaye song, nearly $7.4 million of profits previously generated by “Blurred Lines,” which was 2013’s biggest single and earned more than $5 million each for singer Robin Thicke, producer Pharrell Williams and the record companies.
