Katy Perry and Others Must Pay $2.8 Million in Dispute Over 'Dark Horse'

A federal jury in Los Angeles on Thursday decided that Katy Perry and others must pay $2.8 million in damages in a copyright dispute over her 2013 song “Dark Horse.”

The verdict came three days after the jury found that Ms. Perry, her record company and other collaborators were liable for copyright infringement because parts of “Dark Horse” resembled “Joyful Noise,” a Christian rap song from 2008 by the artist Flame, whose real name is Marcus Gray.
