Robin Thicke Is Guilty of Copyright Infringement

Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I.’s 2013 hit, “Blurred Lines,” was a lot of things — infuriating, sexist and overplayed all come to mind — but was it guilty of outright ripping off Marvin Gaye’s 1977 song, “Got to Give It Up”?

In a decision made today (March 10), the jury ordered that Thicke and Williams pay $7.3 million in royalties to the late Marvin Gaye’s family and estate for copyright infringement. Since its release, Thicke and Williams have garnered approximately $5 million each from the track.
