Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke lose Blurred Lines copyright case

Pharrell Williams' and Robin Thicke's 2013 hit Blurred Lines did breach copyright, a court in Los Angeles has ruled.

Jurors decided that the track was too similar to Marvin Gaye's 1977 hit Got To Give It Up and ordered Williams and Thicke to pay $7.3m (£4.8m) in damages.

Speaking outside the court, the lawyer for Marvin Gaye's family revealed outside court that the case had originally been brought against them.

Alastair Leithead reports from Los Angeles.
