Well, you reap what you sow.

Unfortunately for Pharell Williams and Robin Thicke, a jury was unable to blur the lines between inspiration and plagiarism.

Robin Thicke - 'Blurred Lines'

After a gruelling court battle, which saw the pair in and out of court for seven months, a jury has finally concluded that Robin 'The Thickman' Thicke and Pharrell Williams are liable for copyright infringement.

Marvin Gaye’s family has emerged victorious in a case which alleged that Robin Thicke’s 2013 hit “Blurred Lines” sounds remarkably similar to Marvin Gaye’s "Got to Give It Up".

You decide.

Same or just a coincidence?
