The trio filed a lawsuit against Marvin Gaye‘s family and Bridgeport Music, which owns some of Funkadelic’s compositions.
At issue are complaints about similarities between “Blurred Lines” and at least two songs.
The suit claims the Gaye family is alleging that “Blurred Lines” and Gaye’s “Got to Give It Up” “feel” or “sound” the same, and that the “Gaye defendants are claiming ownership of an entire genre, as opposed to a specific work.”
As for Funkadelic, there’s said to be claimed similarity between Thicke’s hit and Funkadelic’s “Sexy Ways.”
