Blurred ap­peal

-

POP stars Phar­rell Wil­liams, Robin Thicke and rap­per T.I. will ap­peal a ver­dict and rul­ing that found they im­prop­erly copied Marvin Gaye’s mu­sic for their hit Blurred Lines.

Lawyer Howard King said he will ap­peal a judge’s rul­ing up­hold­ing a jury’s copy­right in­fringe­ment ver­dict.

US Dis­trict Judge John Kron­stadt trimmed the nearly $7.4 mil­lion ver­dict to $5.3 mil­lion but also ruled that Gaye’s fam­ily should re­ceive fu­ture roy­al­ties from Blurred Lines.

Mr King wrote that the trio did not use Gaye’s mu­sic to cre­ate the song.
