All these grave situation pieces post-verdict are deceiving. Thicke and Williams' deceived the Gaye estate when they said they weren't considerably influenced by "Got To Give It Up" and they made out as if they conceived "Blurred Lines" independent of Marvin Gaye's influence.  The songs align in a plagiaristic way (IMHO).  They should've cut a deal with the songwriter and the publisher long before the song/album's release.  This practice is long-established.

 

Most titles introduced to audiences are not this obviously drawn from another artist's work.  The music industry will NOT be impacted by this verdict any more than they were by previous cases that highlighted songs' similarities and were proven to be agregious lifts and not just coincidental.

 

Worse, another track from Robin Thicke's recent work is an even more obvious lift from Marvin Gaye.  You never want to see a trend...

From this case, i honestly don't think the two songs sounded the same. They were inspired by Marvin Gaye's song.

In years coming more producers and singer will be sue off of inspiration..
