Though M.Net Media has responded to Lee Hyori’s plagiarism case, it seems as though this issue has not been resolved yet.
Several artists and/or their representatives have spoken out and claimed that they own the original songs. They have not sold the rights to their song and probably have never heard about Bahnus before this case.

Big thanks to honeyhiyo for posting this on my behalf. I (savile_row) would've posted this myself but membership to Omona is currently closed and I wanted to make sure that the other side of the issue is heard and that the artists are identified and their experiences shared because, so far, everything has been about Hyori and Mnet.
To get the latest updates regarding this issue, including first-hand information gathered from the artists' themselves, and to also see how everything developed from the beginning and how it contrasts with what Mnet is saying how things happened, please visit the dedicated thread at the AllKPop forums.
