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.
