  • Streaming music may make cases like Katy Perry's more common

In addition to Perry, the statement was issued on behalf of her "Dark Horse" collaborators Dr. Luke (Lukasz Gottwald), Cirkut (Henry Walter), Max Martin (Karl Sandberg), Juicy J (Jordan Houston) and Sarah Hudson.

Lawyers for Flame - whose real name is Marcus Gray - had sought almost $20 million for him and his two co-writers, but were "quite pleased" with the outcome. Perry's camp will have to pay $2.78 million in damages, although her record label Capitol Record will foot the majority of the bill. They also claimed that Perry's song, which was a single on her Prism album and garnered her a Grammy nomination, netted her millions of dollars in profits.

"They're trying to own basic building blocks of music, the alphabet of music that should be available to everyone", Lepera said Thursday.

Katy Perry and her collaborators have been ordered by a Los Angeles judge to pay $2.78 million in damages for copying a Christian rap song, according to the Associated Press.

Variety received a statement from Perry and her team saying "The writers of Dark Horse view the verdicts as a travesty of justice". Perry took in over $3 million herself.

Lepera, Perry's attorney, said outside court that the plaintiffs presented no evidence of copyright infringement, no evidence that the songwriters had access to "Joyful Noise" and no evidence the songs that were substantially similar. "We've been receiving outcry from people all over the world, including other musicologists".

Gray's attorneys argued that the beat and instrumentals in his song are significantly like what is heard through nearly half of "Dark Horse".

"The only matter in common is an unprotectable C and a B note, repeated", Lepera said.

Kelber said the Perry decision may show that "the floodgates are starting to open on these cases".

Jurors were told that Dark Horse earned about $41 million in total.

After the jury made its verdict earlier this week, defence lawyers argued for an award of $360,000.

The decision comes after nearly five years of deliberation.

The "Teenage Dream" singer and the team behind the song - which had six co-writers - testified that they had never heard of "Joyful Noise" before.
