Federal Jury Says Katy Perry Copied Christian Song 'Joyful Noise'

Federal Jury Says Katy Perry Copied Christian Song 'Joyful Noise'

A jury in the United States has said that Katy Perry copied the beat of another song to make her hit single Dark Horse.

Gray's attorneys only had to prove that "Joyful Noise" had a far enough reach and could have been heard by Perry and her co-writers.

Gray and his co-plaintiffs filed the case in 2014 alleging that the notes and beats of "Dark Horse" had been swiped from "Joyful Noise", a Christian rap song. Showing her characteristic sass, Perry offered to perform the song live, to laughter from the people assembled in the courtroom.

The trial will now move onto the next phase, to determine how much Gray and his collaborators are owed in compensation.

Katy Perry is on vacation in Spain, but news from America is not good for the singer, as a jury found her liable of plagiarizing her hit "Dark Horse".

Perry was not in the Los Angeles courtroom when the verdict was read.

Katy was accused by Flame for copying his song called Joyful Noise. The AP reported that "all six songwriters and all four corporations that released and distributed the songs were liable", including famed producer Dr. Luke and Capitol Records.

"They're trying to own basic building blocks of music, the alphabet of music that should be available to everyone", Lepera said.

"They're trying to shove Mr".

Technical difficulties plagued the trial, Variety reported, saying attorneys attempting to play the song were unable to make the track work. The song Dark Horse had won Katy Perry many awards and it was a chartbuster. Kahn also pointed out that Perry could be particularly attuned to Flame's music, as she began her career as a Christian artist.

"Joyful Noise" has more than 2 million views each on two separate YouTube videos.
