It has been belatedly known that JYJ is involved in a lawsuit for damages. JYJ sued a publishing company for using their photos without permission, violating their portrait rights.
According to the courts, JYJ’s Park Yoochun, Kim Junsu and Kim Jaejoong filed a lawsuit against a certain publishing company for using their photo without permission and asked for about $40,000 in damages.
The publishing company used JYJ’s photo for the cover of an entertainment magazine, which was what led to the lawsuit. At first, C-JeS Entertainment filed a request for the magazine sales to be stopped but action was not taken. Therefore, C-JeS filed a damages lawsuit for portrait rights violations, which got the case going.
