The Gaye family is continuing to put out lawsuits to everyone involved in the making of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” track. Recently, they won the case against Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams for $7.4 million, but it looks like they aren’t finished.
The family is now coming after Universal Music, Interscope Records and Star Trak Entertainment, and wants them to pay up also for copyright infringes, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They are also looking into holding T.I. accountable for his part in the single. If the record label is proven liable, it could interfere with future distribution of the record.
Both Williams and Thicke are working on appealing the initial, $7.4 million, judgement.
Pharrell appeared to have dodged an additional bullet over the weekend, following reports that Gaye’s family would also be coming after the multi-platinum artist for infringement on Marvin Gaye’s classic 1966 hit, “Ain’t That Peculiar.” Though the word over the weekend was that Pharrell was headed for another set of litigation, the family is in fact NOT suing Williams for his contribution to Despicable Me 2.
