Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams are celebrating an unblurred victory in their ongoing legal battle with Marvin Gaye’s heirs.
A federal judge has ruled that the famous recording of Gaye’s legendary song “Got To Give It Up” will not be played for jurors when the parties go to trial next month in their multimillion dollar copyright infringement dispute, lawyers for both sides told the Daily News.
Gaye’s children, including son Marvin Gaye III, claim Thicke and Williams illegally copied Gaye’s 1977 smash hit when they wrote their wildly popular 2013 Grammy-nominated single “Blurred Lines.”
U.S. District Judge John Kronstadt said Gaye’s heirs can only pursue their copyright claim using a live musician hired to play Gaye’s written composition on a keyboard in court.
