Great, Now “Blurred Lines” Has Ruined the Entire Music Industry

Great, Now “Blurred Lines” Has Ruined the Entire Music Industry | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
No matter how much you may hate "Blurred Lines" and Robin Thicke, you don't want to come down on the side of the jury's verdict in the Marvin Gaye lawsuit.
Pierre Priot's insight:

Blame it on lawyers. Such law suits wouldn't occur if music hadn't turned into a business. If it wasn't for royalties who would care about anyone crossing the "influence" line and getting into plagiarism?

Marvin Gaye's Children Use A Mash-Up To Convince Judge Robin Thicke Ripped Off Their Dad | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The heated legal fight between Marvin Gaye’s estate and Robin Thicke has been going on for over a year now due to the alleged similarities between “Got To Give It Up” and last year’s song of the summer “Blurred Lines.” Most recently, the Gaye children have filed summary judgement papers that base their case around media interviews and depositions that Thicke and co-writer and producer Pharrell Williams gave that mention the influence Gaye’s song had on writing “Blurred Lines.” They also submitted an audio mash-up that is meant to demonstrate “concrete musical illustrations of the substantial similarities” between the two songs.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Cause when it comes to copyright infringement, obvious plagiarism always needs a rock solid demonstration.
