Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams Guilty and Ordered To Pay Marvin Gaye's Family 7 Million For The Song "Blurred Lines" - Watch Videos
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams found guilty of copy infringement for the song "Blurred Line" against Marvin Gaye's song "Got To Give It Up" and is ordered to pay 7 Million.

Marvin Gay's family say's Robin and Pharrell copied Gay's song without permission  and they are entitled to some of the profits.

"Blurred Lines" became a huge hit and made Robin and Pharrell millions and T.I. thousands from the project, but Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were the writers and producers of the song and T.I. just added his rap twist into the project. So it doesn't look like T.I. is responsible to pay anything. 
According to MyFoxAtlanta News "Blurred Line" sold 7.3 million copies in the U.S. alone.   

Marvin Gay's song "Got To Give It Up" was a hit in the 70s and made it to the top of many billboard charts. The trial between the Gaye's, Thicke, and Williams consist of attorney's evidence of video comparisons and also the fact that Thicke was indeed a huge fan of Marvin Gaye which Thicke himself agreed; however he also says that the song "Blurred Lines" was his own original work and Marvin's song had no influence on the creativity. The family saw different, and their Attorney displayed the similarities between the two hit songs. 

In a press conference Gay's daughter says she is free from Pharrell and Robin Thicke's chains and what they tried to keep on their family, and the lies that was told. 
Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke's attorneys are trying to find a way to overturn the order to pay 7 Million to Marvin Gaye's Estate.
