Robin Thicke asks federal judge to rule 'Blurred Lines' doesn't copy from 2 other songs
Robin Thicke is asking a federal judge to determine that his song ``Blurred Lines'' doesn't copy from elements of two other songs.
Attorneys for Thicke and the song's producer and co-writer, Pharrell Williams, filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles on Thursday asking a judge to determine their song does not copy songs composed by Marvin Gaye and George Clinton.
The suit states that representatives of the owners of copyrights to Gaye's song ``Got to Give It Up'' and Clinton's song ``Sexy Ways'' have warned Thicke and Williams that they have used elements of the songs in ``Blurred Lines.''
``Blurred Lines'' has been No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart for 10 weeks.
It has sold 4.6 million tracks.
