Robin Thicke & Pharrell Williams to face Marvin Gaye’s Family In Court

Robin Thicke & Pharrell Williams to face Marvin Gaye’s Family In Court | Style Copyright. | Scoop.it
Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have lost the first round of the legal battle they started against Marvin Gaye's family over allegations of copyright infringement.
James Giovanni's insight:

This is exactly what I was looking for because of the length of the article. The source seems somewhat reliable granted its posted on a music related website. Although the website seems more "tmz" than info for engineers and professionals on the field, it provides me with enough information both factual and opinionated to know where I stand with the allegations of copyright infringement.

James Giovanni's insight:

Although the information on this website does not seem biased, the website provides us with very little information on the article. The article itself is short and only has an image. If it wasn't for the fact that another scoop of mine supports the findings of this article I probably wouldn't have used it at all..

Marvin Gaye's Family Wins First Round In 'Blurred Lines' Case Against Pharrell ... - Essence.com

Marvin Gaye's Family Wins First Round In 'Blurred Lines' Case Against Pharrell ... - Essence.com | Style Copyright. | Scoop.it
A judge has ruled that a jury must decide whether Robin Thicke and Pharrell plagiarized the late Motown legend’s hit song.
James Giovanni's insight:

The article is short and the site is not as credible as others I've seen, however the article details factual information regarding the development of the lawsuit. In my opinion saying someone copied Marvin's "style" is absurd in this case. A lot of artists and samplers are inspired by artists like Marvin Gaye and the nature of this "plagiarism" is FUNDAMENTALLY the principle of a bass+drums track. ABSURD. I wonder what will be considered infringement of copyright in 20 years.

James Giovanni's insight:

The perfect article. Detailing information about the matter as well as presenting the viewer with both songs so they can see what the article is all about. VERY credible source, very good material. It explains they were suing Robin for another song (one i didn't know about) and it uses dates and timeframes very effectively. The source is factual and unbiased.

Marvin Gaye’s Family Countersues Robin Thicke Over Motown Star ‘Fixation’

Marvin Gaye’s Family Countersues Robin Thicke Over Motown Star ‘Fixation’ | Style Copyright. | Scoop.it
The family of Marvin Gaye is fighting back against Robin Thicke in court, claiming that the singer has routinely ripped off the influential soul star in the
James Giovanni's insight:

This one seems a little more informational than the last article i scooped. On this article there is a video (brownie points for multimedia usage) as well as a quoted statement made by Robin Thicke, which basically explains how Robin Thicke wanted to make a song inspired off of Marvin Gaye's track (which seems perfectly fine to me). However, he does deny he made such statement, which makes me question his character and intentions.
