After a week of trial, an eight member jury has ruled that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams, must pay $7.3Million to the Marvin Gaye family for copyright infringement. The lawsuit filed by the Gaye family claims the 2013 hit single ‘Blurred Lines’ co-written by the artists directly infringed on the 1977 hit song by Marvin Gaye titled ‘Got to Give it Up.’
Ms. Uduak takes on the legal analysis in this 38th episode of the ‘The Africa Music Law Show.’
