Pay Up! Katy Perry Ordered To Dish Over $2.7 M In Copyright Infringement Case

Katy Perry and her record label have been ordered to cough up a whopping $2.7 million after a jury found the singer’s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” copied a Christian rap song.

Marcus Gray and his two co-writers on the 2009 song “Joyful Noise” were awarded the money on Thursday after a week-long trial and two days of deliberation

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, on Monday a jury found Perry guilty of copying her song “Dark Horse” from the Christian rapper.

Gray, known professionally as Flame, accused the brunette beauty and reviled music producer Dr. Luke of lifting the underlying beat from his song for Perry’s 2013 hit.

During court on Monday, Perry stated: “My goal has always been to be a messenger of authenticity and to share that in three-minute songs,” said Perry, 34, whose father is an evangelical preacher, and who created Christian pop music as a teen.

Gray presented his case, testifying that his 2008 song ‘Joyful Noise’ could easily have been heard by Perry and Dr. Luke as it was played at the Grammy Awards and was on YouTube and MySpace. Both denied ever hearing the song.
