A federal appeals court supported a copyright violation judgment against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams over the 2013 hit tune Blurred Lines.
In a split decision from a three-judge panel, the 9th UNITED STATE Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday awarded $5.3 million US to the household of Marvin Gaye, who stated Blurred Lines illegally copied from the late soul singer’s Got to Offer it Up.
2 out of 3 judges denied the defense’s request to reverse the decision or order a brand-new trial.
Dissenting Court Jacqueline Nguyen claimed the choice has actually permitted the Gaye household to copyright a whole musical style.
Howard King, attorney for Thicke and Williams, claims he prepares more appeals.
An email to Gaye family’s attorney Richard S. Busch wasn’t instantly returned.
