ICYMI: Over 200 Musicians — Including Jennifer Hudson, R. Kelly, & Weezer — Defend Pharrell Against 'Dangerous' Blurred Lines Verdict!

no title

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:

Doesn't seem like he thinks he'll end up in the same boat as Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke.

But that doesn't mean T.I. won't have to show up to court to defend himself!

The rapper was recently named in a new lawsuit from Marvin Gaye's family who want the ruling judge to "correct" their decision to include not just Pharrell and Thicke in their Blurred Lines lawsuit but T.I. and all of the music labels involved, as well!

But T.I. recently shared his feelings on being named in this copyright infringement case and it sounds like he's pretty secure in the knowledge that he didn't steal anything and thus does NOT owe anybody anything!

Some lose while others win.

That was the case on Tuesday when Robin Thicke and Pharrell lost their court battle against Marvin Gaye's family and were ordered to fork over $7+ million to the late singer's family for using direct elements of Gaye's song Got To Give It Up in Thicke's song Blurred Lines.

In the immortal words of Marvin Gaye, "what's going on?!"

Last week, we reported on how we heard through the grapevine about the impending lawsuit between Robin Thicke, Pharrell, and T.I., and Marvin Gaye's family who claim that Blurred Lines was plagiarized from Marvin's Got to Give it Up!

Now, it's come out that Robin's legal team apparently took the song's advice, and gave it up themselves, offering a 6-figure settlement to the Gaye family.

Thicke was probably like "I know you want it," but the Gaye family rejected it!

Only then did Robin say, "let's get it on" to a lawsuit over whether or not Blurred Lines infringes on Got to Give it Up!

Until the lawsuit is decided one way or another, ch-ch-check out this cool mash-up of the two songs…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
