    Katy Perry’s 'Dark Horse' Copied Christian Rap Song

    凱莉·佩蒂的《Dark Horse》抄襲了一首基督教說唱歌曲

    A jury in Los Angeles found that Katy Perry's 2013 popular song "Dark Horse" had copied a 2009 Christian rap song by a little-known artist.

    洛杉磯的一個陪審團發現凱莉·佩蒂2013年的一首很流行的歌曲《Dark Horse》抄襲了一首2009年發行的基督教說唱歌曲。這首基督教歌曲由一位不太出名的藝術家編寫。

    The decision came five years after Marcus Gray and two songwriters first brought legal action against Perry and her team. They said that "Dark Horse" stole from "Joyful Noise," a song Gray released under the stage name Flame.

    該陪審團在馬庫斯·格雷和兩名歌曲的詞曲作者首次向佩蒂和她的團隊提起法律訴訟的五年之后做出了這個裁決。他們說《Dark Horse》抄襲了格雷以藝名Flame發行的單曲《Joyful Noise》。

    "Dark Horse" spent four weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 and earned a Grammy nomination for Perry. She also performed the song during her 2015 Super Bowl halftime show.

    《Dark Horse》曾位居公告牌百強單曲榜榜首四周的時間并為佩蒂贏得了格萊美獎提名。她也在她的2015年超級碗中場秀中演唱了此歌曲。

    The jurors found that all of the defendants - six songwriters and four companies that released the song "Dark Horse" – were responsible for breaking copyright rules. A defendant is the person or company that is being accused of wrongdoing in court.

    這些陪審團成員發現包括六名歌曲詞曲作者和發行《Dark Horse》的四家公司在內的所有被告都對違背版權法負有責任。被告是指在法庭上被指控犯有不法行為的人或公司。

    Gray's lawyers argued that the beat and instrumental line, or musical patterns, in "Dark Horse" were similar to that of "Joyful Noise." Gray wrote the song with Emanuel Lambert and Chike Ojukwu.

    格雷的律師辯論道《Dark Horse》中的節拍和用樂器演奏的類型或者曲風與《Joyful Noise》的很相似。格雷和伊曼紐爾·朗伯以及奇克·奧朱克武共同創作了這只單曲。

    Perry's musical expert told the jury that the musical patterns in the dispute were as simple as the 19th-century song "Mary Had a Little Lamb." The song is commonly sung to get children to sleep.

    佩蒂的音樂專家告訴陪審團曲風上的糾紛與19世界歌曲《Mary Had a Little Lamb》一樣簡單。這首歌被廣泛傳送用來哄孩子們入睡。

    Her lawyers compared the patterns to "the alphabet of music that should be available to everyone." They argued if they were to be copyrighted, it would hurt music and all songwriters.

    她的律師將類型比作每個人都可使用的字母表音樂。他們辯論道如果他們有抄襲行為,那么它將損害了所有音樂和所有歌詞作曲家的利益。

    The jury of six women and three men disagreed. They thought that the beat and instrument line at the center of "Joyful Noise" were original enough to be copyrighted.

    陪審團的六位婦女和三位男士對此表示異議。他們認為《Joyful Noise》中間的節拍和用樂器演奏的類型是具有原創特色的并且會被抄襲。

    Perry and her team of songwriters also said that none of them had heard Gray's song or even heard of him before the lawsuit. They also said they did not listen to Christian music.

    佩蒂和她的歌曲作曲家團隊也表示他們中沒有人曾經聽過格雷的歌曲或者甚至在他起訴之前都沒有聽說過這個人,他們也表示他們沒有聽過基督教音樂。

    However, Gray's lawyers showed that Perry and her songwriters could have heard the song. "Joyful Noise" has millions of plays on YouTube and Spotify and was included on an album that was nominated for a Grammy award. Gray's team also pointed out that Perry started her career singing Christian music.

    然而,格雷的律師表示佩蒂和她的歌曲作曲家可能聽過那首歌。《Joyful Noise》在YouTube和Spotify已經被播放了數百萬次并且被收入到了被格萊美獎提名的一張音樂專輯中。格雷的團隊也指出佩蒂靠演唱基督教音樂開始她的音樂生涯。

    The jury will now have to decide how much money Katy Perry and other defendants owe Marcus Gray and his team for violating copyright rules.

    現在陪審團將必須決定出凱莉·佩蒂和其他被告因違反了版權規則需要賠償馬庫斯·格雷和他的團隊多少錢。
