Remember earlier this year when a judge ruled that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke owed Marvin Gaye's estate a whopping $7.3 million for ripping "Got to Give It Up" in their 2013 hit, "Blurred Lines"? Well, the judge must have had a change of heart because he reduced the amount owed by more than $2 million, citing that he had overestimated the money grossed from the song. Yay? [A.V. Club]

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams aren't done with "Blurred Lines" just yet.

The music makers announced plans to appeal the March trial verdict that ordered them to cough up $5 million for copyright infringement.

Marvin Gaye's Ex-Wife on 'Blurred Lines' Lawsuit: 'I'm Here to Protect What Marvin Left'

Entertainment Weekly reports that on Monday, Thicke and Williams filed a motion with the Central District of California courts to have the decision reevaluated. 

Both artists have maintained that they would not intentionally steal another musician's work and in a July interview with the New York Times, Thicke stated that the song was crafted without any melicious intent.

"I know the difference between inspiration and theft. I’m constantly inspired, but I would never steal," he said. "And neither would Pharrell."

Thicke and Williams were sued by Marvin Gaye's family in March after a judge deduced that "Blurred Lines" included uncredited samples of Gaye's 1977 hit, "Got to Give it Up." The initial court decision included that the Gaye estate be rewarded half the royalties from the 2013 song.
