Marvin Gaye Family Lawyer: How I Won the 'Blurred Lines' Trial (Guest Column)

I was surprised. When Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams decided to launch a lawsuit seeking declaratory relief that "Blurred Lines" wasn't a copyright infringement of Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up," I didn't know they'd do this.
