Katy Perry to appeal in the case of Dark Horse plagiarism

2 min read

Katy Perry does not accept her loss in the Dark Horse lawsuit. The singer appeals against her conviction. This summer, a jury found that a beat from her hit Dark Horse was stolen from the Christian rap song Joyful Noise. Katy, her co-writers and record label had to pay a fee of 2.5 million dollars.

Katy, as expected, filed a protest in a California court. The American music magazine Billboard saw the court documents. In it, Katy’s lawyers repeat the arguments they also put forward during the hearing of the case. Again they state that the agreement is very small, that the beat is not protected by copyright and that it has not been established that the composers of Dark Horse heard Marcus Grays Joyful Noise before making Katy’s hit from 2013.

In addition, Katy’s team indicates that it is impossible to calculate what part of the proceeds from Dark Horse will go to the makers of Joyful Noise. They also question a witness; musicologist Todd Tecker is said to have given an “inappropriate and very adverse testimony”.

Katy and her colleagues ask that the previous judgment be set aside, the case resumed and / or that the amount of the compensation imposed is substantially reduced. A Gray lawyer informed Billboard that he was opposed to the appeal. “We continue to fight for the rights of our customers.”
