[Feb-03-2009] Rain's agency, to take strong measures on portrait rights



Rain's agency, to take "strong measures on portrait rights" regarding calendar sales


Rain's agent J-Tune Entertainment (a.k.a J-Tune) expressed its measures towards the right of portrait issues of its celebrities.

Last 2nd, J-Tune revealed their 'Guide towards portrait of agent celebrities' in Rain's official home page. J-Tune wrote that "due to usage of celebrity's portrait without permission caused by the development of photography and recording, we are announcing the 'guide towards portrait'" and warned that "usage of celebrity's picture, image, name, voice, motion without permission from J-Tune can lead to legal issues regarding right of portrait, right of publicity, copyright, privacy right and invasion of right of honor."

In particular, J-Tune said that "the celebrity's portrait might have direct relation towards his/her image, so if any 'portraits' are abused, we will take firm measures." Also, J-Tune added that "even if non-profit is the purpose, when selling products related to the celebrities, please attain our permission beforehand" and emphasized that "usage of the celebrity's portrait without permission will call for strict measures."

The reason for J-Tune's such stance is that they found out about certain Rain's fans using Rain's pictures to sell calendars without permission.

Rain's official fan club Cloud revealed such happening by posting 'apologies to fans about the calendar issue'. Cloud said that "although Rain calendar was at its last stages and the sample was out, the project has been postponed due to unforseen issues" and added that "we found out about cooperative purchase of (DIY) calendars and asked for them to stop and believed their word that they have done so, but found out only a few days back that the cooperative purchase has been done and the goods have been sent already".

Cloud continued that "not only us but J-Tune also got involved in this issue and was left with no other choice but to postpone our calendars also due to portrait right issues." and expressed their apologies for "postponing indefinitely a bazaar that was being planned where Rain could join in with the fans."

[Feb-04-2009]Rain appealed to his fans for restraining their excessive concerns.

Rain's agency J.Tune entertainment asked Rain's fans to restrain themselves to visit his dance practice room through its official home page.

His side appealed to them, "Please put up your visit for Rain who is under stress due to his concert, even though you guys miss him much."

This is not different from the invasion of the star's privacy. When Rain released his 5th album last October, he received a visit from some fans with carrying a tour flag, so he was confounded at the sight of it.

Rain said, "I thank the fans for their support and love, but I'm worrying that it may do harm to the neighborhood. The unknown tour seemed to be under way, perhaps it was an excessive salesmanship."

4 months later, his agency had to issue the advisory regarding asking the fans, who are visiting even the practice room as well as his own home, to stop visiting.
