Pharrell's $7.3m Bill For Copying Marvin Gaye

Written by

The Happy singer and his co-writer are told they've got to give it up after losing their copyright infringement battle.

A jury has ruled that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke copied Marvin Gaye with their song Blurred Lines - ordering the pair to pay $7.3m (£4.85m).

The eight-person panel reached the decision after hearing nearly a week of testimony about similarities between the biggest hit of 2013 and Gaye's 1977 song Got to Give It Up.
