Court upholds decision to award Marvin Gaye estate royalties from "Blurred Lines"

A federal appeals court on Wednesday upheld a $5.3 million judgment against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams for copying a Marvin Gaye song to create their 2013 smash Blurred Lines.
Circuit Judge Milan Smith also upheld an award of 50 per cent of future royalties from Blurred Lines to the Gayes.
He restored the jury, finding that the Interscope record label, and Clifford Harris, the rapper known as T.I. who added a verse to Blurred Lines, should not be liable.
