The "Blurred Lines" trial has gone to the jury. The verdict will end two weeks of proceedings over whether Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams and T.I. copied their hit from the Marvin Gaye song "Got To Give It Up." The late soul legend's children Frankie and Nona Gaye claim "Blurred Lines" is too similar to the copyright they hold for sheet music to their father's composition. If the jury agrees, the musicians and their record companies could face $25 million in damages.
