LOS ANGELES (AP) — A jury considering whether the 2013 hit song "Blurred Lines" copied Marvin Gaye's music has resumed deliberations.

The eight-person jury on Tuesday posed a question to U.S. District Judge John Kronstadt about its instructions.

Kronstadt and attorneys for singers Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke and the Gaye family crafted a response.

Deliberations began Thursday after jurors heard nearly a week of testimony in the copyright infringement case.

The Gaye family contends "Blurred Lines" by Thicke and Williams copies Gaye's 1977 song "Got to Give It Up."

Williams and Thicke have denied they copied Gaye's music to create "Blurred Lines," which was the biggest hit song of 2013.
