Robin Thicke and Pharrell were recently accused for plagiarizing Marvin Gaye's "Got To Give It Up" with their #1 hit "Blurred Lines".
They have just been convicted of intellectual property infringement and the jury has awarded a massive $7.3 million dollars to Marvin Gaye's family.
Listen to both the songs below and you can hear the obvious similarities in the production and overall composition of the songs. It's pretty insane for such massive and respected artists, Pharrell specifically, to blatantly copy such a popular song.
