Reports say that Robin Thicke and Pharrell probably won’t pay any legal fees in the “Blurred Lines” lawsuit against Marvin Gaye’s estate.
As previously reported, a jury found that the hit song infringed on the copyright claim of Gaye’s 1977 song “Got to Give It Up” and had to pay $7.3 million in damages.
According to The Hollywood Reporter,
Robin and Pharrell’s lawyers argued last month that the price tag in damages is so large that the two shouldn’t be required to cover the legal fees for the Gaye estate and a judge ruled in their favor on Monday (March 14th).
Whew! I know they’re happy.
