According to Entertainment Weekly,

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have filed a motion to appeal the “Blurred Lines” verdict. Both artists have maintained that they would not intentionally steal another musician’s work. The two were sued by Marvin Gaye’s family, who accused the duo of sampling Gaye’s 1977 hit “Got to Give It Up.” The judge ordered the two to pay $7.3 million to the family.

Good for them!  I feel like they got a raw deal in having to pay the Gaye estate all that money.
