Robin Thicke Is Suing Marvin Gaye Over 'Blurred Lines' Because Why Not?

As you may know, Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" is the song of the summer, and it's about as catchy as a blatantly misogynistic ode to objectification and degradation can be (but you don't have to take our word for it.) But now it is also the point of contention for a suit that Thicke (and his "Blurred" buddies, Pharrell and T.I.) are bringing against Marvin Gaye because, uh, they're worried the Gaye family is going to sue them because the song sounds too much like Gaye's "Got to Give It Up" or something?

Basically, they've heard that the family of the late, great Marvin Gaye thinks "Blurred Lines" sounds suspiciously like some of Gaye's work, so Thicke and Co. have filed a pre-emptive countersuit (that you can file a countersuit when no suit has actually been filed is news to us, but it's a crazy world) to keep the Gaye family from filing an actual suit. And all of this is really blurring the lines over who's suing who (if you thought you were going to get out of here without a "blurred lines" jokes, you don't know us) ...

This is ridiculous and hilarious at the same time, what's wrong with these guys? If they really wanted to be in a court room, they should have waited for the Gaye family to sue them for the song's resemblance. For a real share of news that count, most people check out on a daily basis. When you have so many online resources that keep you posted, staying informed these days has become a lot easier.

Can you really file a countersuit when no suit has actually been filed? This is nothing but an unusual way of drawing people's attention. For those who want to make things right, there are some useful information on regarding the legal steps of filing a lawsuit, that should be followed by everyone.
