Pharrell has something to say about the ruling for “Burred Lines.” A Los Angeles jury found Pharrell and Robin Thicke guilty of copyright infringement for their 2013 hit “Blurred Lines.” The family of Marvin Gaye who ownsthe rights to his music said the song “Blurred Lines” was too similar to Marvin Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got To Give It Up.” Pharrell and Thicke were ordered to pay $7.3 million to the Marvin Gaye estate.

Pharrell said..”The verdict hampers any creator out there who who is making something that might be inspired by something else,” and not just in music: “This applies to fashion, music, design… anything. If we lose our freedom to be inspired, we’re going to look up one day and the entertainment industry as we know it will be frozen in litigation.”

“Everything that’s around you in a room was inspired by something or someone. If you kill that, there’s no creativity.”

Artists have to be extra careful now when creating!

Marvin Gaye’s children were awarded nearly $7.4 million dollars on Tuesday after determining that Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams copied music to create Blurred Lines. Blurred Lines was the biggest hit song of 2013. The song Got To Give It Up by Marvin Gaye sounded a little too similar to Blurred Lines. Pharrell Williams told jurors that Gaye’s music was part of the soundtrack of his youth. However Williams said that he did not use any of it to create Blurred Lines. Marvin Gaye died in April 1984 leaving his children copyrights to his music.

Drake-2014
Drake makes news for dissing Tyga, Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne’s platinum single “Loyal”. It seems Drake just was not feeling the track so while on stage in Illinois for the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour Wayne rapped his verse on the Loyal track and Drake started talking to the crowd. “That sh!t sounds like a f%king car commercial or some sh!t,” “That’s what y’all cheering for? This nigga Tyga at the movie theater with Chris and sh!tt.” Now Chris Brown is currently on probation so could it be Drake is just trying Chris to see where this would go?? Drake and Chris reportedly had issues in the past dealing with Rihanna but then again the name of the tour is Drake vs Lil Wayne so maybe the two rappers are battling for fan support. Seems smart.
 
luda
Ludacris has a new album dropping soon. The title he chose is “Ludaversal”. On a show called “Rising Star” that Luda just so happens to be a judge on he reveals backstage that his new single “Chance To Win” will be ready in about two weeks. Pharrell produced the track and right now it is being mixed and mastered. With a few features here and there from Luda, we haven’t really gotten to much music from him as a whole but maybe that is about to change. Luda is an actor but also has great lyrics to support his talent.
