A verdict in the “Blurred Lines” case might have been delivered, ordering Robin Thicke and Pharrell to pay $7.4 million to Marvin Gaye‘s estate for plagiarism, but the ordeal isn’t over—and not just because the family now plans to attempt to block sales and distribution of the song, though their newest action may do just that.

Not only has Gaye’s family recently pointed out similarities between Pharrell’s “Happy” and the late singer’s “Ain’t That Peculiar,” but they’re also going after T.I., Universal Music Group, Interscope and Pharrell’s Star Trak Entertainment, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The family has reportedly filed two new motions for the judge to consider, which ask the judge to add Universal Music Group, Interscope and Star Trak to the list of infringers and overrule the jury’s decision to exonerate T.I..

Believing that the distributors should be held as accountable as the songwriters, the Gayes are seeking more reparations.
