Marvin Gaye's children have taken legal action against Robin Thicke citing that the Blurred Lines singer has completely ripped of some of the soul iconic's songs as his own.

This has been going on a while as back in August Robin Thicke and Pharrell filed a preemptive lawsuit against Marvin Gaye's family telling them to back down about all this copyright infringement claims.

That was just a bit like poking tigers at the zoo as the family have now filed a counterclaim.

It is all going down now.

Have a listen and see what you think...

Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines




Marvin Gaye's Got to Give It Up




Similar huh?

Then there's...

Robin Thicke's Love After War




Marvin Gaye's After the Dance




Hmmmm.....

The suit also cites several interviews in which Thicke credits Marvin Gaye as a great inspiration.

The family is also suing EMI, which works for both sides, for 'failing to protect Gaye's songs' and for bullying them for taking legal action.

So - what do you reckon?
