Katy Perry Loses ‘Dark Horse’ Copyright Lawsuit

After a week-long trial, a California jury has decided that Katy Perry‘s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” unlawfully borrowed elements from another song.
Christian rapper Flame, a.k.a. Marcus Gray, claimed that the hit song copied the beat of his 2008 track “Joyful Noise.” Perry and Dr. Luke, who co-produced “Dark Horse,” both insisted that they had no prior knowledge of Flame’s song.
The jury has yet to decide on how much Perry and her collaborators, who also include featured artist Juicy J and co-producer Max Martin, owe Flame in damages.
