Marvin Gaye’s Family Goes After Robin Thicke for ‘Blurred Lines’

The family of Motown legend Marvin Gaye has rejected a hefty settlement from Robin Thicke’s reps in the copyright infringement battle over the hit “Blurred Lines.”   The six-figure offer came after members of Gaye’s family accused Thicke of using elements of Gaye’s former number one hit “Got To Give It Up.”  Marvin Gaye was shot and killed by his father in 1984.

Thicke and “Blurred Lines” co-writers Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr. reportedly filed a suit in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles requesting a ruling that the summer’s biggest hit does not infringe on “Got To Give It Up.”  Thicke has reportedly admitted that he drew heavily on the Marvin Gaye song while writing “Blurred Lines,” as it was one of his favorite songs of all time.  But, he said it was only to evoke the sound of an era.   Thick says the songs are very different.
