Marvin Gaye's Heirs Awarded $7.4 Million in Damages: Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams

 A jury awarded Marvin Gaye's children nearly $7.4 million Tuesday after determining singers Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams copied their father's music to create "Blurred Lines," one of the biggest hit songs of 2013.

Nona Gaye, Marvin Gaye's daughter cried as the verdict was being read and was hugged by her attorney, Richard Busch.  "Right now, I feel free," Nona Gaye said after the verdict. "Free from ... Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke's chains and what they tried to keep on us and the lies that were told."
An attorney for Williams and Thicke said a decision in favor of Gaye's heirs could have a chilling effect on musicians who try to emulate an era or another artist's sound.
The Gayes' lawyer branded Williams and Thicke liars who went beyond trying to emulate the sound of Gaye's music and copied the hit "Got to Give It Up.".
