A jury has completed its first full day of deliberations in a copyright infringement case in which Marvin Gaye's family claims the 2013 hit "Blurred Lines" copied their father's music.

The eight-person panel left Friday afternoon after being told by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt to resume their deliberations on Tuesday.

'Blurred Lines' Trial: Pharrell Says Marvin Gaye Never Came Into His Head in the Studio

Gaye's children are suing Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and the rapper T.I., alleging their song copies Gaye's 1977 hit "Got to Give It Up."

Jurors heard from Thicke and Pharrell, who denied they copied Gaye's song. Much of the trial focused on detailed comparisons of the two songs.

An attorney for the Gaye family told jurors they could award millions of dollars in damages if they determine "Blurred Lines" copied the earlier hit.
