ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!
Last week, it was reported that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke clapped back hard at that Blurred Lines lawsuit — appealing the verdict that they committed copyright infringement against Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up.
Throughout the drawn out court battle, the singers expressed the sentiment that paying homage to an earlier era and making a song reminiscent of a sound shouldn't fall under copyright infringement.
And it looks like a TON of musicians agree — because 212 artists, composers, and producers have filed a brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in support of the bid by Williams, Thicke, and T.I. to overturn the decision.
Musicians from all corners of the industry have banded together to support the appeal, claiming that the Blurred Lines creators deserve victory on grounds that the court's ruling will set a precedent that will "stifle creativity" and "impede the creative process."
Among those who threw their names in the ring are the members of Train, Linkin Park, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Black Crowes, Fall Out Boy, as well as Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Hall & Oates' John Oates, R. Kelly, Hans Zimmer, Jennifer Hudson, Jean Baptiste, Evan Bogart and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse).
The artist's brief, penned by entertainment attorney Ed McPherson, states:
Last year, the musicians lost their legal battle against Marvin Gaye's family, who claimed the guys committed copyright infringement with their 2013 hit.
The late legend's estate won millions of dollars after alleging the songsmiths stole their single from Marvin's Got To Give It Up.
But on Wednesday, the trio officially filed to appeal the verdict! The musicians submitted their opening brief with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
In their legal papers, the performers explained that the verdict, as it stands, could inhibit other artists' creative processes in the future, saying:
Aww, what a bittersweet message!

Paula Patton Talks Life After Robin Thicke Divorce — 'You Have To Find The Place Where It Gets Easier'
Paula Patton is doing just fine after her divorce from Robin Thicke.
In fact, she's got the sort of healthy coping skills we could all use.
The Warcraft actress understands that it's important to let go of things you can't control and focus on the moment instead.
Speaking with People recently, she explained:
"You just keep living your life and have faith that everything sorts itself out. Be patient, I'm learning that later in life it's like, 'All in due time,' and the real goal is to find joy in the right now. Focusing on what I have right now is really good and not be concerned with things I can't control: How other people see me, what they say, it's wasted energy for me and it's never done me any good."
That's it exactly! You have to remind yourself that you can't control everything, and just do your best. It's the only way!
Of course the 40-year-old (who totally looks 25) acknowledges that it's a difficult process:
Since then, the brunette beauty has graced the silver screen with her sex appeal — playing Ben Affleck's insatiable mistress in Gone Girl and Zac Efron's love interest in the disappointing DJ movie We Are Your Friends.
But according to the 24-year-old, her sexiness is a double edged sword!
In an interview with Evening Standard, Ratajkowski revealed she would love to play more three-dimensional characters, but her sexiness makes it "hard" for her to snag serious roles! She explained:
