Pharrell Williams & Robin Thicke Insist A “Groove” Or “Feeling” Cannot Be Copyrighted (April 24th, 2017)

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have argued a “groove” cannot be copyrighted as they continue to fight allegations their “Blurred Lines” was lifted from a Marvin Gaye song. The stars have been challenging a 2015 ruling they illegally sampled Gaye’sGot To Give It Up” tune from 1977, which landed the late soul icon’s heirs Nona and Frankie Gaye millions in damages.

During the Los Angeles trial, the musicians denied the infringement allegations but openly admitted to being inspired by Gaye’s work, and in their latest filing, their attorneys insist the two tracks are only similar in the “feeling” listeners get when they hear the tunes – and that cannot be protected under copyright law. “A ‘groove’ or ‘feeling’ cannot be copyrighted, and inspiration is not copying,” reads a brief filed on Monday (April 24).


They are also asking appeals court officials to determine whether the original case judge, John Kronstadt, was correct in sending the dispute to trial instead of issuing a summary judgment. Thicke and Williams are seeking a reversal of the 2015 judgment or a retrial in a lower court, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Gayes’ attorneys insist the songwriters do not deserve the opportunity to appeal or try the case again. The late soul legend’s kids were initially awarded a slice of a $7.4 million verdict, but the figure was later trimmed down to $5.3 million, before the defendants launched their appeal.

Robin Thicke is heading to South Africa for his first-ever live performance and will be this year’s international star on the stage at ANN7’s South African of the Year Awards 2016 on 25 November. Last year the SATYs courted controversy when, after Christina Aguilera pulled out, American artist Jason Derulo performed and asked the audience who didn’t appear responsive enough to him “Y’all speak English, right?”

ANN7 says it plans to make this year’s SATYs, that will be broadcast on 25 November from 18:00, “bigger and better.” The awards ceremony will again hand out trophies to South Africans in categories ranging from best artists and conservationists, to sport, youth and business leaders, culminating in the award for South African of the Year.

Pharrell Williams & Robin Thicke Cite ‘Cascade Of Legal Errors’ In ‘Blurred Lines’ Trial

Musicians seek to overturn controversial copyright infringement verdict from last year. Get ready for another verse in the battle over “Blurred Lines.” “Blurred” writers Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and Clifford Harris Jr. (a.k.a. T.I.) filed their opening brief in the appeal on Tuesday, claiming that a “cascade of legal errors” marred the initial trial. In a controversial verdict last year, a jury ordered Williams and Thicke to pay $7.4 million, after determining that their 2013 song infringed on the 1977 Marvin Gaye tune “Got To Give It Up.”

The new brief, filed in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, states, “‘Blurred Lines’ is not substantially similar to ‘Got To Give It Up’ as a matter of law.” The “Blurred Lines” team contends that the two songs should have been compared in accordance with the Copyright Act of 1909, which deems that copyright extends only to sheet music, not sound recordings. The 1909 Act was later supplanted by the 1976 Copyright Act, which allows for comparisons of sound recordings, though lawyers for Williams and Thicke maintain that “Got To Give It Up” was created before the later act went into effect.
