Jury Hears Closing Arguments in "Blurred Lines" Trial

Hosted by ,

The trial over the song "Blurred Lines" is moving towards closing arguments. The issue at hand is whether the biggest hit song of 2013, created by Robin Thicke, Pharell Williams and T.I., is a copyright infringement on the Marvin Gaye song "Got to Give It Up." One thing the trial has revealed is just how much of a financial success "Blurred Lines" was. The song made more than $16 million in profits, which was given to the song's creators and record companies. The overhead costs of creating the song were said to be $6.9 million. Gaye's family is also after money made from performing "Blurred Lines" on tour. The family's lawyer says the alleged total damages add up to about $40 million.
