    Robin Thicke Files Suit Against Marvin Gaye Estate


    Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is officially the song of the summer, however, it brings comparisons to Marvin Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up,” and if I may say so myself, the tracks do sound alike. Gaye’s family and Funkadelic, who own the rights to Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up,” feel it is too similar. Thicke isn’t leaving any business lines blurred, he, Pharrell Williams and T.I., filed a lawsuit against Gaye’s family and Bridgeport Music, reports THR.

    The group of distinguished men filed the action “reluctantly.” They have “the utmost respect for and admiration of Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic and their musical legacies.” They contend “there are no similarities between plaintiffs’ composition and those the claimants allege they own, other than commonplace musical elements,” states the lawsuit. “Plaintiffs created a hit and did it without copying anyone else’s composition.”
