A jury here confirmed that singer Katy Perry has imitated her popular hit song ‘Dark Horse’ released in 2013, from a rap song called ‘Joyful Noise’ or ‘Flame’ by Marcus Gray.

A jury of nine members who met Monday, made the decision, after finding similarities between the two songs, thereby infringing copyright.

The week-long trial also saw Perry appearing as a witness and informing the jury that the song was an original composition, and that she had never heard the rap song.

Katy Perry said her collaborative work produced several examples of short instrumental passages, which inspired the composition of ‘Dark Horse’.

Perry’s team said the rhythm underlying the two songs was unusual, so it couldn’t be copyrighted.

Meanwhile, Gray’s counsel said the defendant imitated an important part of his song, referring to the instrumental phrase for 16 seconds.
