This past spring, a judge ruled that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke had to pay $7.5 Million to the estate of legendary singer Marvin Gaye for infringing on his song “Got To Give It Up” based on their 2013 chart topping collaboration “Blurred Lines.” The now landmark case was one of the most talked about copyright infringement lawsuits in recent memory and will undoubtedly have a lasting effect on the music industry and the policies that dictate creativity.
Hollywood Reporter recently uncovered footage from Pharrell’s deposition in which an opposing lawyer questions him on his creative process and everything in between. The superstar artist/producer is visibly tense and even goes as far as to tell the attorney “i’m not here to teach you music.” Check out the clips below.
