The 118- page lawsuit, filed last week, accuses dozens of producers, rappers and record labels of stealing The Batiste Family’s music and illegally incorporating it into their own, without permission or compensation.

The lawsuit claims popular songs like ”Blame It,” T-Pain’s “Booty Wurk”, “All I Do Is Win,” by DJ Khaled and several others, were taken from various songs created by The Batiste Family.

Finally, last week Robin Thicke, Pharrell Williams, and T.I. filed a lawsuit against the family of the late Marvin Gaye. The suit is actually an attempt by the trio to prevent the Gaye family from suing them first over the mega hit “Blurred Lines” which the Gaye family says blatantly samples Marvin’s music.  Another words, Robin isn’t suing for any money.  He just wants a judge to step-in and say he didn’t do anything wrong.

What do you think?  Are the two songs similar?  Should the Gaye family sue Robin Thicke for sampling Marvin Gaye’s song or not?
