Marvin Gaye’s family to hold TI and record labels responsible for copyright infringement

Gaye’s children have filed a motion to add rapper TI, Universal Music and Interscope to list of those culpable in Blurred Lines copyright case

A jury’s decision on 10 March 2015 to hand Marvin Gaye’s family approximately $7.4m in copyright damages and profits has in no way signalled the end of their battle against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke’s 2013 hit Blurred Lines.

Now, in the wake of the trial jury’s verdict in their favour, Gaye’s children have filed an injunction to list three record labels and Blurred Lines featuring artist TI as responsible parties – and thus also hold them accountable for the ruled copyright infringement. Gaye’s family have also written and published an open letter, clarifying their motivations behind taking the copyright case to court on their father’s behalf.

In the original trial, the jury exonerated TI and the record distributors of Blurred Lines, focusing instead on the testimony of musicologists to decide whether or not the structure of Williams and Thicke’s soul-inspired pop song too closely mirrored Gaye’s 1977 single Got to Give It Up.

Now, Gaye’s family is looking to correct the original jury verdict and has listed record labels Universal Music, Interscope Records and Williams’s Star Trak Entertainment as culpable for their manufacture and distribution of the song.

They have filed two separate motions: one to add TI and the labels to the list of copyright rule-breakers, and another to halt the sale and reproduction of Blurred Lines until both parties reach an agreement on how the Gayes “may share in the copyright and all future proceeds of Blurred Lines, as is their right”.

According to their open letter, Gaye’s children hope “to set the record straight on a few misconceptions echoing through some news and social media platforms about our intentions, our plans, and the so-called ‘larger’ ramifications of this case within the music industry”.

The letter confirms previous reports that though Marvin’s daughter Nona hears similarities between Williams’s single Happy and Gaye’s 1965 song Ain’t That Peculiar, the Gayes are not planning to file a copyright case about the two tracks. In addition, they detail their thoughts on the fine line between inspiration and imitation in music.

It remains to be seen whether Williams, Thicke and TI’s lawyer, Howard King, will file an appeal to counter the Gaye’s family’s injunctions. Given the contents of King’s open letter about the case, published online by the Hollywood Reporter on 12 March 2015, the post-trial complications may only just be starting.

“We now head into the later innings of the contest,” he wrote, after the trial had ended. “While the Gayes are to be congratulated on obtaining a jury verdict, this matter is not finished by any stretch of the imagination.”

Info for Marvin Gaye Live! (Remastered)

Marvin Gaye Live! is the second live album issued by soul musician Marvin Gaye. In 1973, Gaye released his greatest-selling album, Let’s Get It On, which made him the biggest-selling Motown artist during his lifetime. Motown Records, Gaye’s label for over a decade, had long wanted Gaye to promote his recordings with a national tour but the rebellious singer, who had begun suffering from stage fright after the collapse of his beloved singing duet partner Tammi Terrell in October 1967 and whom later died of a brain tumor two and a half years later in March 1970, had refused to return to live performing only agreeing to do it only at sporadic times including when he was honored in his hometown in Washington, D.C. in May 1972 and performed at the Kennedy Center and briefly on the 1973 film, Save the Children. But with the success of Let’s Get It On and Gaye’s now-increasing spending habit, he reluctantly agreed to start touring again in the beginning of 1974. After rescheduling the concert for January 4, 1974, at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, Gaye took the stage in front of 14,000-plus screaming fans. He performed a new song which he dedicated to his girlfriend Janis Hunter titled „Jan“ and performed most of his 1970s repertoire, only including his 1960s classics in a sped-up „Fossil Medley“. Throughout his tours, Gaye began developing performance anxiety and had feared the public reception. To test the public, he reportedly forced his younger brother Frankie to come out before being confident enough to come out afterwards. The biggest fan response on the album came when Gaye retooled his song, „Distant Lover“, into a slower-paced version starting the song out as he segued from „Theme from Trouble Man“ (seventh track from his Trouble Man album) to the song itself producing female shrieks, which kept up as Gaye continued his show-stopping performance of the song. The performance soon became a Gaye trademark onstage and the singer continued to perform the song in that similar style until his final performances in the 1980s. (Wiki) Commercially, the album was a big success and proved that, despite his fears, Gaye was still as convincing as a live performer as he was as a recording artist during the early-1970s. On August 31, 1974, the album peaked at #1 on the R&B album chart for two weeks while resting at #8 on the pop album chart. The live version of „Distant Lover“ created such a frenetic response that Motown issued the live song as a single where it reached #28 on the pop chart and #15 on the R&B charts in the late summer of 1974. The album would go on to sell over a million copies. The live album earned Gaye his fifth Grammy Award nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 17th Annual Grammy Awards, losing to „Boogie on Reggae Woman“ by fellow Motown artist and close friend Stevie GayeDigitally remastered

Marvin GayeBrilliant, enigmatic, and headstrong, Marvin Gaye was an innovator. In 2009, he would have been 70 years old, and it has been 25 years since his tragic death. But today Marvin remains as influential and exciting as ever: Rolling Stone recently named him one of the greatest singers of all time. He was born Marvin Pentz Gay Jr. on April 2, 1939, in Washington, D.C., where he dreamed of singing before large crowds; he joined a co-founded a local doo-wop group, the Marquees, who were spotted by Harvey Fuqua, who made them his new Moonglows. Marvin arrived in Detroit on tour with the Moonglows and stayed, as did Harvey, and Marvin was signed to Motown just based on raw singing talent. He was also a songwriter, an OK drummer-and handsome as hell. He wanted to sing jazz, to croon Tin Pan Alley standards, but that didn’t pan out. Motown founder Berry Gordy encouraged Marvin to sing R&B, and once Gaye sang the soulful (and autobiographical) “Stubborn Kind Of Fellow” in 1962, stardom enveloped him. The incendiary “Hitch Hike,” “Pride And Joy,” and “Can I Get A Witness” sold like crazy in 1963, and Marvin oozed silky sexiness on the 1965 classics “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You),” “I’ll Be Doggone” and “Ain’t That Peculiar.” By 1968′s immortal “I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” and on a series of electrifying duets with Mary Wells, Kim Weston (“It Takes Two”), and his ultimate singing partner, the ravishing but ill-fated Tammi Terrell (“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” et al), Gaye was a commercial force. He soon became recognized as an artistic one as well. At decade’s turn, Marvin seized full control of his output with the deeply personal, socially aware 1971 masterpiece What’s Going On, which produced three hit singles: the title track, “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)” and “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology).” He defied expectations again with “Trouble Man,” a 1972 hit single featured in his haunting, jazzy score of the movie of the same name. He zoomed to the top of the charts with his passionate Let’s Get It On, while delivering a pop confection in Diana and Marvin, his duet album with Motown’s queen, Diana Ross. I Want You, released in 1976, was another sensual masterwork, a meditation on obsessive love that was also No. 1. Marvin made his personal life public through his songs, and it was never more evident in 1978′s Here, My Dear, a sprawling double-album chronicling his divorce from Anna Gordy, Berry’s sister. Even his No. 1 dance classic from 1977, “Got To Give It Up,” a studio cut added to flesh out the double-LP Live At The London Palladium, was about the singer’s reluctance to get loose on the dance floor. Marvin left Motown in 1981, with the politically tinged album In Our Lifetime. He fled to London, then Belgium, where he created for Columbia Records “Sexual Healing,” his first Grammy® winner. But another hit was not salvation from his demons. On April 1, 1984, one day before his 45th birthday, Marvin was shot to death by his father. Marvin’s influence reaches across the generations. He was rightfully among only the second group of artists honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in 1987. More recently, Marvin was No. 6 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Singers Of All Time. “Motown Week” on American Idol 2009 (Season 8) featured remaining contestants singing not one but two of Marvin’s songs. His records-and his ringtones and his DVDs-are still going gold.

I’ll Be Doggone

Once he hit his full stride at Motown, Marvin Gaye was proving unstoppable. His personal hit streak commenced in 1962 with the aptly titled Stubborn Kind Of Fellow (Gaye had resisted singing commercial R&B initially at Motown, preferring to croon old standards), then went into overdrive the following year with Hitch Hike, Pride And Joy, and Can I Get A Witness, and in ’64 with You’re A Wonderful One, Try It Baby, and Baby Don’t You Do It. He was also proving a fine duet foil, scoring hits alongside both Mary Wells and Kim Weston.

Holland-Dozier-Holland started 1965 off memorably for Marvin with their glorious How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You), a #4 R&B/#6 pop blockbuster. „The key, he thought, was too high,“ says the song’s co-writer and co-producer Lamont Dozier. „If you put Marvin in a situation where his back was against the wall, meaning that the key was a little high, he would come up with stuff that you couldn’t write on paper, as far as his performance was concerned.“

Marvin’s endlessly prolific pal Smokey Robinson produced his next smash, the sleek I’ll Be Doggone. Written by Smokey, Miracles bass singer Pete Moore, and their guitarist Marv Tarplin, it vaulted all the way to the top of the R&B charts and made it to #8 pop. Constructed around a tough rhythm guitar figure and spiced with crackling bongos, a mixed vocal chorus, and swirling strings, I’ll Be Doggone was chock-full of sly Robinson lyrical twists and turns that rendered the tune a pure delight.

„The music was primarily done by Marv Tarplin,“ reports Moore. „He was the one that came up with the original riff. Once we heard it, then Smokey and I put the lyrics to it.“ Before the year was through, the same creative triumvirate, abetted by fellow Miracle Bobby Rogers, would come through again for Marvin, handing him another number one R&B smash, Ain’t That Peculiar.
