Marvin Gaye's family hint at further Pharrell plagiarism legal action

Marvin Gaye's family have suggested that they could launch new legal action against Pharrell Williams.

As previously reported, a jury has ruled that Robin Thicke and Williams' 2013 song 'Blurred Lines' - one of the best-selling singles of all time - copied Gaye's 1977 track 'Got To Give It All'.

$7.3m (£4.8m) in damages is due to be given to Gaye's family.

It has now been suggested that Williams' smash hit 'Happy' is very similar to Gaye's 'Ain't That Peculiar'.

The late singer's daughter Nona told CBS: "I'm not going to lie. I do think they sound alike."

The family, however, are "not in the space" yet to launch further legal action.
