Following the ruling, Thicke, Pharrell and T.I.'s reps issued a joint statement expressing their clients' disappointment in the verdict.
"While we respect the judicial process, we are extremely disappointed in
the ruling made today, which sets a horrible precedent for music and
creativity going forward," it read. " 'Blurred Lines' was created from the heart and
minds of Pharrell, Robin and T.I. and not taken from anyone or anywhere
else. We are reviewing the decision, considering our options and you will
hear more from us soon about this matter."
