In the aftermath of the completion of the various Gayo Daejuns in Korea, there was news last Friday that some singers had used some music for their performances without the required permission from copyright holders.According to reports, DBSK leader U-Know Yunho and Rain had used Justin Timberlake Magic as the background music for their performances in the SBS Gayo Daejun and KBS Gayo Daechuk respectively. But the tune was apparently used without any permission being sought from the copyright holders. In addition, Shinee’s Taemin has also met with the same problem, using Usher Dat Girl Right There for his dance performance at the SBS Gayo Daejun.A SonyBMG who holds the rights for both songs expressed that Magic and Dat Girl Right There had not been released officially through any channels. They thus do not understand how they had gotten their hands on the songs. Although Magic was illegally uploaded in October last year but it wasn’t included in any of Justin Timberlake’s album thus they are left perplexed at this.DBSK and Shinee’s manager responded by saying that they didn’t know that the song was obtained through illegal means and expressed their regrets. Rain’s management, J. Tunes expressed that they did not use the music illegally on purpose but only knew that it was an American song. Some Korean netizens felt that it was a national insult, “Even though the singers have called on fans not to download music illegally, why are they infringing on copyrights themselves?” Some Korean netizens felt that it was a national insult, “Even though the singers have called on fans not to download music illegally, why are they infringing on copyrights themselves?”

This is so embarrassing but hopfully SonyBMG dont sue or go to court cause they'll win for sure. Using leaked music in public and caught on camera is something you can go to jail for or pay up big time.And I hope this doesnt effect Rain's or Boa (since she is in SM) debut in America.SonyBMG is HUGE.

well i dont know, some variety show in asia use american music as background but its not like they are claming to be their own music, isnt the same situation they just use the music for a show but they didnt say was their own, i hope they dont sue because is more like asia artist is promoting american music, thanks to that american singers can sell some more album in asia.

Its not that it was an American song,Korean people always dance or sing to American songs but its just that the music they used wasn't officially released yet.

What people dont understand is that JT's magic and Ushers song were leaked and weren't on their albums. Anyone can dance or sing American songs or any song but its illegial if that song hasn't come out yet and you were caught which means you downloaded illegially uploaded songs.

But even if it was officially released, wouldn't you still need the permission of the company who holds it?
Or is that not the case?

the case is that they couldnt have gotten a hold of the song unless it was illegally downloaded
to add on to that, they used an illegally downloaded song in a public performance that has aired nation wide
sony will win if they sue
