The children of MARVIN GAYE have settled a lawsuit (NET NEWS 10/31/2013) with EMI over ROBIN THICKE's GRAMMY-nominated "Blurred Lines."
CBS NEWS reports, "The GAYES had accused EMI of not pursuing a copyright infringement case against THICKE because 'Blurred Lines' has similarities to GAYE's 'Got to Give It Up'. A LOS ANGELES judge on TUESDAY granted NONA MARVISA GAYE and FRANKIE CHRISTIAN GAYE's dismissal of their lawsuit against EMI, which is owned by SONY/ATV MUSIC PUBLISHING. Documents say the GAYES and SONY have an agreement and claims against SONY can't be brought again."
Terms of the settlement weren't disclosed.
