The battle between Marvin Gaye’s kids and the music executives behind Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” hit appears to be over, as Sony/ATV bosses have settled with the family members.

It means the publisher will not be dragged into the ongoing case that will push forward between Gaye’s family and Thicke.

Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell Williams asked a judge in August to rule they didn’t copy “Got to Give It Up.” Gaye’s children accused the performers in October of copying elements of Gaye’s music for “Blurred Lines.”

Late last year, Thicke revealed he was eager to reach a settlement to avoid a court battle with his idol’s relatives, but they reportedly rejected a six-figure sum.

Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ was named the best-selling single of 2013 in both the US and UK.
