JYJ wins lawsuit against Japanese management Avex

20130118_jyj

Following their settlement with SM Entertainment last year, JYJ seems to have rid themselves of another lawsuit by claiming victory against their former Japanese management, Avex.

C-JeS Entertainment confirmed the news by commenting, “During the trial in Japan on the 18th, it was ruled that Avex cannot interfere with the Japanese promotional activities of JYJ.”

They added, “Once the exact decision documents arrive, we will send out a press release.”

The group has been battling Avex since 2011 on the basis of interfering with the group’s attempt to put on a charity concert for the Tohoku earthquake.

With this ruling, it seems that JYJ may be able to start promoting in Japan again.

Ew, Avex has already appealed. But hopefully, the judge will dismiss their crap. Enough is enough.
Jaejoong x Japan = OTP

OMG yes, I want JYJ to come back and promote in Japan again. \o/
That being said, what company should they sign with? I want them to go with Sony. ^_^

Edit: On second thought, Universal.

I hope Avex ends up in a big fat fight with SM about who's gonna pay those damages.

C-JeS releases details regarding JYJ’s lawsuit victory over Avex + Avex announces its intentions to appeal

After the initial announcement regarding JYJ‘s win against Avex, C-JeS Entertainment has revealed details regarding the ruling received.

According to C-JeS, the Japanese court ruled that Avex cannot insist on JYJ’s sole management in Japan, and ordered the management company to pay JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment 660 million Yen (~ 7.3 million USD). The court also acknowledged the fact that Avex has defamed C-JeS’s CEO, and as such, ruled that they also pay the CEO 1 million Yen (~ 11,000 USD).

To recap, JYJ and Avex suspended their exclusive contract back in 2010 and as the conflict of promoting in Japan escalated between them, Avex had released a public notice that falsely claimed that C-JeS’s CEO was affiliated with gangsters and brought about the halt of promotions in Japan for the group. They also insisted that they had sole management over JYJ’s Japanese activities and interfered with the group’s attempt to put on a charity concert back in 2011, which led to the lawsuit.

In response to the ruling received in court today (18th), Avex has already made it clear through an announcement on their homepage that they cannot accept the decision and that they will be filing an appeal.

At this rate, I have a feeling that it won't be over until JYJ are done with their military service. Dirty delaying tactics.

omg end it already ppl
fallingfortruth 18th-Jan-2013 05:29 pm (UTC)
I really, really want to know who CJeS's lawyer is related to. Otherwise it makes no sense that they're spending this much time trying to go for damages. (Which is why the SM lawsuit dragged on so goddamn long, as soon as they dropped the damages claims the entire thing was resolved really quickly.)
ceecile 18th-Jan-2013 05:36 pm (UTC)
The damages the court ordered them to pay are 7.3 million USD + 11,000 USD for CJeS CEO. That's a lot of money.. I wouldn't let that go either tbh.

Praying so hard for at least JAPANESE shows inviting them now, especially since JJ is so popular with the japanese fans and just released his solo-album...come on, show some guts, japanese TV!! Onegaishimasu! m(_ _)m
chloe1910 19th-Jan-2013 05:56 pm (UTC)
*praying hard together with you* I hope to see JYJ, especially Jaejoong on Japanese shows cause he's really loved in Japan.
ceecile 18th-Jan-2013 05:33 pm (UTC)
Can they sign with someone else and promote in Japan since Avex appealed or now we have to wait for that verdict? Stalling stalling..
Because say the court changes its verdict then they would be signed to 2 companies.

(Judge reads Main Text)

Avex – defendant
C-JeS – plaintiff

1. Avex should not circulate any documents or verbal notice to any 3rd party in case JYJ Kim Jaejoong, Kim Junsu, and Park Yoochun hold activities in Japan since they do not hold exclusive rights to manage JYJ in Japan.

why is there a random Sumo Association? o,o
jlie_ly 18th-Jan-2013 06:15 pm (UTC)
Avex appealed, another 3 years...
at this rate, by the time all JYJ's lawsuits have ended, I'd have my first born already OTL.
meterstandkaart 18th-Jan-2013 06:25 pm (UTC)
I have no idea about foreign law, but in Dutch law you can request immediate enforceability from the judge. Which would make them able to start promoting right now. Anyone know if they did?
sadistic_dance 18th-Jan-2013 06:55 pm (UTC)
lol Avex is not paying that.
Is Max still on twitter. I bet he's maaad.
jaejoong 19th-Jan-2013 01:39 am (UTC)
I wish Max was still on twitter because the drunken rants we'd get from this would be priceless. I always used to love watching him go off the deep end and then Ayu coming in and being like "okay, time to get off twitter now, Max"

AVEX better make sure their appealing case is strong, otherwise, they'll end up paying more than 11,000 USD + 7.4 M USD once the daily interests are added. lol

JYJ le ha metido tapabocas a todos y cada uno con los que se enfrenta en corte.

Anyone know, what's the likelihood of Avex getting anywhere with this appeal?
ceecile 18th-Jan-2013 09:45 pm (UTC)
JYJ's case is strong and if everything is fair & impartial the appeal should go nowhere. But that is not a given with Avex & Japanese courts..
Looking at the case itself it's clear JYJ should win but we couldn't get our hopes up because it's Avex & Japanese courts are not known for their.. Fairness.

The moment I read the title to this post: "MUDDAHFUCKYEAHBOIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!111!!!!1"

Finally some good things for JYJ. I heavily support the dramas they appear in. Yoochun as an actor is definitely becoming a stan of mine.
akillarian 19th-Jan-2013 12:00 am (UTC)
I NEEEEED channel A to torture the 3 again.
katzsong 19th-Jan-2013 05:01 am (UTC)
YAY! Appeal or no appeal, this is a big news that needs celebration! atm, anyway.
I hope they can promote in Japan again. JJ need to be the social butterfly and hangout with all the other Japanese celebs or have his own cooking show on TV XD
Junsu need to do sexy dances on MSta again and Yoochun can go bar-hoping with the comedians from Shabekuri 007 haha ^^
unofficialdear 19th-Jan-2013 05:19 am (UTC)
