Just came across this article in The Hollywood Reporter:
Robin Thicke Sues to Protect ‘Blurred Lines’ from Marvin Gaye’s Family
Here’s a link to a PDF of the lawsuit
Plaintiffs, who have the utmost respect for and admiration of Marvin Gaye, Funkadelic and their musical legacies, reluctantly file this action in the face of multiple adverse claims from alleged successors in interest to those artists. Defendants continue to insist that plaintiffs’ massively successful composition, ‘Blurred Lines,’ copies ‘their’ compositions.”
The suit claims the Gaye family is alleging that “Blurred Lines” and Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” “feel” or “sound” the same, and that the “Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work.”
Have a listen:
Marvin Gaye – “Got to Give it Up” (1977)
Robin Thicke – “Blurred Lines” (2013)
I have another song for you! Check out the similarity in these two songs!
“Anytime” -Kelly Clarkson (2003) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfGxTK4EdQM
“Overcome” -Alexandra Burke (2009) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-1T6Irk9XA
I love both artists and songs, but I couldn’t help but notice the similarity between these two. Perhaps UK music artist Alexandra Burke is a Kelly Clarkson fan?

Listen to this song by the Swedish rock band Takida. It’s a total rip-off on Michael Jackson’s “Give in to me”! For example, compare the riff at 0:21 to Michael’s intro. And Takida’s intro sounds similar to Michael’s chorus.
