Robin Thicke & Pharrell Will Pay Millions Less Over Blurred Lines — But It's Not The Result They Wanted!

no title

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams may not be celebrating victory in their Blurred Lines case — but they do have some good news.

After a jury awarded the family of the late Marvin Gaye with a verdict of $7.4 million in their copyright infringement suit over similarities to the song Got To Give It Up, a judge has only mostly upheld the ruling.

While there won't be a new trial as Robin and Pharrell's legal team requested, the judge did lessen the total money owed to $5.3 million.

Williams has the most to be Happy about; he was ruled as only a "practical partner" to Thicke and liable only for his share of profits. He went from having to pay $1.6 mil to $357,000.

The judge also denied the Gaye family's request to block Blurred Lines from further distribution, instead giving them 50% of future songwriting royalties.

While this is somewhat good news, Robin and Pharrell still attest the song shouldn't be ruled as copyright infringement at all, and many in the music industry agree.

Could this set a scary precedent for "homage" sounds? What do YOU think??

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!
