After writing the hit song, “Blurred Lines,” songwriters Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams were sued by the family of the late Marvin Gaye, saying the song was too similar to Gaye’s song, “Got to Give it Up (Part I).” The judge in the case awarded the estate of Marvin Gaye $7.3 million. Copyright lawyer Dr. E. Michael Harrington, who was interviewed for the case and is currently involved in the appeal of the decision, says it was the worst example of a copyright infringement accusation that he’s ever seen. The only commonalities between the songs, Harrington argues, was the “feel” of both songs. Harrington further argues that there was no duplication of chord change, melodies, or rhythm, and there weren’t even any samples of “Got to Give it Up (Part I)” featured in “Blurred Lines.”
