NEW YORK (AP) — Marvin Gaye's children have settled claims against a music company owned by Sony over Robin Thicke's Grammy-nominated hit song "Blurred Lines."

The Gayes had accused EMI of not pursuing copyright infringement against Thicke because "Blurred Lines" has similarities to Gaye's "Got to Give It Up."

A Los Angeles judge on Tuesday granted Nona Marvisa Gaye and Frankie Christian Gaye's dismissal of their lawsuit against EMI, which is owned by Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Documents say the Gayes and Sony have an agreement and claims against Sony can't be brought again. Terms weren't disclosed.

Lawsuits between the Gaye family and Thicke remain active.

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."
