T.I. responded to the Gaye Family's desire to "correct" the "Blurred Lines" by listing him as copyright infringer.

Marvin Gaye's family won $7.4 million from the "Blurred Lines" decision handed down on March 10th, but they aren't done yet. They recently filed a motion to "correct" the jury's verdict by adding Universal Music, Interscope Records, and Star Entertainment, and T.I. to the list of infringers, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

TMZ caught up with T.I. at LAX, and T.I. had the following to say on the subject:

"I don't know what's going on, I never really got caught up in that. I have nothing but admiration and respect for the legacy and estate. And I have nothing but support and extreme admiration for my partner Pharrell. Whatever happened, the universe agreed with it. I know that I'm a writer, I'm a creator, I know that I don't steal from anybody creatively when I make my music. I know that and I think that anybody with common sense is going to be able to see that when they listen to it. 

"Whatever it is, that's out of my hands. Whatever happens, the right thing will always be [me] being exonerated, because I know I did the right thing and I ain't intend to steal from anybody on any of my material.
