Blurred Lines songwriters – Pharrell Williams, TI and Robin Thicke – have been ordered to pay Marvin Gaye’s family more than $7m in damages for the infringement upon the copyright of Marvin Gaye’s 1977 song Got To Give It Up.
The lawyers for Marvin Gaye’s family now also want to stop sales of the song and are to ask the Court for an injunction until a settlement can be reached as to how future royalties from the song will be shared.
