Katy Perry & Team Ordered to Pay $2.78 Million in “Dark Horse” Copyright Suit

Three days after a federal jury ruled that Katy Perry’s 2013 hit “Dark Horse” had improperly copied another artist’s song, the pop star has been ordered to pay $2.78 million in damages. The fees will be split between Perry and Capitol Records, which released the song as part of Perry’s 2013 <i>Prism</i> album, with the pop singer on the hook for $550,000. The jury awarded the sizable sum to Christian rapper Marcus Gray–who performs under the stage name “Flame”–and his two co-writers on the 2009 single “Joyful Noise.”
