Over 140 million hits on Youtube makes it pretty clear Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" is a bonafide hit, but not without some controversy. He's been under fire recently for critics calling the song misogynistic... and now Robin Thicke has sued the family of one of the biggest music legends of all time.
Robin Thicke and his producers are going to court preemptively filing a lawsuit against Marvin Gaye's family and the copyright owner of his work, CNN's Nischelle Turner reports.
The issue are complaints about similarities in the compositions between Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and at least two other songs, including Gaye's hit "Got to Give it Up" among them.
The suit claims that Gaye's family alleges the songs "feel or sound the same." Thicke argues that "Blurred Lines" was meant to "evoke an era" and is "reminiscent of a sound," but that's not copyright infringement, or is it?
What do you think? Did Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" cross the line?
