Robin Thicke is looking to make one thing clear about “Blurred Lines.”  That it is original!He has filed a preemptive lawsuit against two of Marvin Gaye’s relatives and Bridgeport Music. He’s looking to quash claims that he borrowed parts of his smash-hit song from Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” and “Sexy Ways” by Funkadelic (Bridgeport owns some of the Funkadelic’s work). Pharrell Williams and T.I. are also part of Robin’s suit. According to the complaint, there had been grumblings from Gaye’s estate and Bridgeport about the supposed similarities and talk of them possibly going after Thicke for copyright infringement. Robin is not seeking money (other than attorney fees) and instead wants a declaration stating that “Blurred Lines” does not infringe on either “Got to Give It Up” or “Sexy Ways” and that the Gaye family does not have ground to file suit against him.
