A copyright infringement trial over Katy Perry's ‘Dark Horse’ is set to begin this week, and defendants want to ask potential jurors about their Myspace pages.
The early social media site's relevance in a dispute over a 2013 song stems from the allegation that Christian rapper Flame’s ‘Joyful Noise’ was, in part, disseminated on Myspace. ‘Joyful Noise’ was released in 2008.
Flame claims ‘Dark Horse’ infringes his trademark by copying its underlying beat… however, in an exclusive turn of events, this past Saturday (13 July 2019), Carl Wastie also showcased that Flame’s 2008 beat sounds eerily like MIMS’ 2006 beat for ‘This Is Why I’m Hot’. Could this mean that MIMS could be catapulted back into relevance?
