Katy Perry and Juicy J Want Copyright Infringement Lawsuit Dismissed
Singer Katy Perry and rapper Juicy J have asked a judge to dismiss a copyright infringement lawsuit filed against them over their song “Dark Horse.” Christian rapper Flame sued the musical duo last year claiming they damaged the message of his song, “Joyful Noise.”
He went on to state “Dark Horse” created “a false association between the music of “Joyful Noise” and the anti-Christian witchcraft, paganism, black magic, and Illuminati imagery evoked” by the song, adding Perry and Juicy J had sampled his track without permission. Flame requested an injunction to prevent any further release of the song, but Perry and Juicy J are blasting the lawsuit, claiming the rapper doesn’t own the copyright to the song and any similarities are too common. They are asking for the lawsuit to be thrown out, according to TheJasmineBrand.com.
