Fine line for music as jury aways Marvin Gaye's family millions over BLURRED LINES

The AFP reports this interesting note from the world of music:


A ruling that pop stars Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams stole from Marvin Gaye threatens to create -- in the words of their smash hit -- even more blurred lines for songwriters who could increasingly be hauled to court over their artistic inspirations.


Gaye's family was awarded millions--the jury decided that Thicke stole BLURRED LINES. The defense--and lots of musicians--say that 'inspirations' should not result in lawsuits like this..

The lines are blurred indeed..

But what bet goes away: The smell of lawsuits and money.
