The Blurred Lines copyright infringement ruling, which Robin Thicke and Pharell Williams have vowed to appeal, provides a window into how valuation experts work with legal counsel to put a number on it for their mutual clients and the perils of having such questions go to a jury for verdict. This expert panel comprised of a litigator, CPA, an IP professional and a transactional attorney will speak with firsthand experience of damage calculations in the Blurred Lines case and comment on other legal actions that followed, including those against Ed Sheeran ("Photograph"), Led Zeppelin ("Stairway to Heaven") and Beyoncé ('Lemonade") to bring clarity to what otherwise might merely seem to be blurred lines.
