“Blurred Lines” was a huge hit that really set off Robin Thicke’s career and cemented Pharrell Williams as a star producer.

It turns out that the song could end up causing them more trouble than good in the end.

The family of legendary soul singer Marvin Gaye deemed “Blurred Lines” a complete rip off of Gaye’s track “Got to Give it Up,” and took their case to court.

After hearings were held, it was decided that the case will indeed make it to court and that a trial will have to be held to determine whether “Blurred Lines” was a result of plagiarism.

The song is one of the most downloaded tracks of all time, and it has seen its share of controversy, with many believing that it is a sleazy track that has connotations of date rape mixed into the lyrics. If the trial proves that it the basic melody and structure of the song was entirely lifted from the Gaye song, Thicke and Williams could be forced to fork up a huge amount of cash to the Gaye family.
