The legal battle between Robin Thicke, Pharrell, and Marvin Gaye’s family over “Blurred Lines” continues to make headlines. According to Spin, a U.S. District Judge rejected a summary judgement in the case yesterday. A full trial is scheduled to begin February 10, 2015 as Gaye’s family continues to try to prove that parts of Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s “Blurred Lines,” which also features T.I., were stolen from Gaye’s “Got To Give It Up.”
Gaye’s family won an initial part of this disagreement as Judge Kronstadt said they “made a sufficient showing that elements of ‘Blurred Lines’ may be substantially similar to protected, original elements of ‘Got to Give It Up.'”
The legal battle began more than a year ago. In August 2013, the Gaye family reportedly rejected a six figure settlement offer from Robin Thicke. In January, however, the family reportedly settled with EMI for an undisclosed amount. Still, the dispute between Gaye’s family, Thicke and Pharrell appears to be far from settled.
