The “Blurred Lines” trial may have reached its verdict—wherein Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke were ordered to pay Marvin Gaye’s children $7.3 million—but the fight isn’t over.
As Thicke and Williams’ lawyer warned, the artists have filed paperwork declaring the jury’s verdict “inconsistent,” in the hopes of getting another trial.
And on the other side of the fence, the Gaye family attorneys have filed a new motion seeking for rapper T.I. (who also appeared on “Blurred Lines”) and the record label to be held liable for copyright infringement alongside Thicke, Williams and Williams’ publishing company. The motion reads:
Last week, we reported that the Gaye family also wants to halt all sales of “Blurred Lines” until the parties can reach an agreement about how to split future profits.
