As reported earlier, JYJ has won a legal battle with Japanese management, Avex, and can now promote in Japan without problems. However, Avex announced its intentions to appeal.
C-JeS Entertainment revealed that Japanese court ruled that Avex cannot insist on JYJ’s sole management in Japan, and ordered the management company to pay JYJ’s agency 660 million Yen (~ 7.3 million USD). The Japanese management will also have to pay the agency’s CEO 1 million Yen (~ 11,000 USD) for the fact that they defamed him with their actions.
Back in 2010, Avex released a false statement, saying that C-JeS’s CEO was affiliated with gangsters and brought about the halt of promotions in Japan for the group.
However, right after receiving the ruling in the court on January 18th, Avex released an announcement on their homepage that they cannot accept the decision and that they will be filing an appeal.
