GUILTY: Jury finds Katy Perry lifted parts of 'Dark Horse' from a Christian rapper's song https://t.co/e5kG4tzlL1— CBS Los Angeles (@CBSLA) July 30, 2019
A jury has found that Katy Perry’s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” copied a 2009 Christian rap song.
The nine-member federal jury in Los Angeles returned the unanimous verdict Monday.
The decision came five years after Marcus Gray and two co-authors first sued alleging that “Dark Horse” stole from “Joyful Noise,” a song he released under the stage name Flame.
The case now goes to a penalty phase, where the jury will decide how much the plaintiffs are owed for the copyright infringement.
