Marvin Gaye’s Family Plans to Block Sales, Distribution of ‘Blurred Lines’

As much as I love Marvin Gaye’s music, I personally think that his family’s taken this matter a bit too far because I hear no similarities between those two songs in question.


The family of Marvin Gaye isn’t fully satisfied just yet, despite scoring a win in their lawsuit against “Blurred Lines” writers Robin Thicke and Pharrell that saw them award over $7 million.

They want the song’s sales stalled completely, at least for now.

In a statement toRolling Stone, the family’s lawyer said that it is seeking to stop entirely the sales of “Blurred Lines” until a better agreement about how the song’s royalties should be divided can be reached.
