Katy Perry & Capitol Records Ordered To Pay $2.78 M For Copying Christian Song

Katy Perry and her collaborators at Capitol Records have been ordered to pay $2.78 million after a federal jury ruled that the pop star copied one of her hit songs. The jury previously found that Perry’s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” copied a 2009 Christian rap song titled “Joyful Noise.”

It’s a victory for rapper Marcus Gray, whose 5-year-old lawsuit survived constant court challenges and a trial against top-flight attorneys for Perry and the five other musicians who wrote her song. If the judge upholds the verdict, the case will almost certainly head to an appeals court, where jury awards in similar cases have often been changed or thrown out in recent years.
