    And that’s the problem with juries of lay people trying to decide copyright issues. Total BS. I don’t hear it. Do you?

    I don’t hear it either. The snap sound in the percussion and the tempo are similar but that’s pretty much it. In my view this verdict is crazy.

    Hopefully she’ll appeal it. This is a ridiculous precedent to set. The very resonant 808 sounds the same and the melody has a similar sort of arc, but so do the millions of other trap instrumentals in existence.

    At least we’ll all have a stable source of income going forward if we can just randomly sue artists to make ends meet.

    Nope. Apart from a slightly similar rhythmic synth pattern (very common to trap music) and a percussion (snap),i’m hearing 2 different tracks.

    I don’t hear it at all not even close…..but what I do hear sounds like a rip off of a sample from Spirit In The Sky by Norman Greenbaum in the Joyful Noise track at the beginning ………lol

    There simply has to be another motive behind this. To even say that Finger-snaps (A non melody/non musical Item) is similar, means that we would have to “Really Stretch” to find anything of similarity..

    They do sound pretty close, lined up next to each other.
    Also the ‘you know what it is’ vocal that they both have in the intro, is hardly a coincidence.

    I listened to the 2 tracks…
    Seriously?
    She must have had a bad lawyer… It should pretty easy to demonstrate that this type of beat is present in thousands of songs… She will probably appeal.

    A quick read of the decision: basically, the jury found that “Dark Horse” had similar elements that they heard in “Joyful Noise.” They listed a few examples like the sound of the 808 kick, the tempo and the similarity of the shape/arc of the melody. So the good news is, unless something changes this looks like a new revenue stream for litigious songwriters.

    Rick Beato does the best breakdown of this. The previous vids I have heard have altered the pitch and tempo of the KP track so it sounds like a mashup, hardly proof of anything. Another BS lawsuit IMHO

    Wow if this is considered a rip-off then Country Music should be rolling in lawsuits…
