Apparently Gaye's family is also claiming Robin Thicke has another song similar to Marvin Gaye's:

"Gaye's children accused the performers in October of copying elements of his music for "Blurred Lines." Their lawsuit sought to block Thicke from using elements of their father's music in other songs and claimed Thicke improperly used Gaye's "After the Dance" for his No. 1 R&B hit "Love After War.""

Preemptive lawsuit = I know Ima finna get sued for this blatant thievery so Ima sue them 1st.

Thicke, Pharrell, and T.I need to have a seat at the chopping block so they can give up a hand.

I was surprised a settlement was reached.  Blurred lines is simular but to say that it rips off Gaye's song or that it's unoriginal  is a stretch IMO.  Sony's rich--they can afford to pay off bad PR.

It's a similar style but there was no sampling.

Exactly. I Couldn't imagine being ok with my white husband suing a black family because their deceased family member's uniquely original song inspired my husband's song. It inspired him so much so, that he doesn't want to pay for blatantly ripping off the sound and adopting it as his own.

It's not all about race. it's just the fact that whites have been stealing and appropriating black music for ages and never giving credit where it's due.
