They should know that the Western continents are more strict on copyright infringement.


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.


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?


No I dont think so, cause that would mean every person that danced or sang a song would need to get permission from the company which is ridiculous. Taemin and Yunho were in the SBS Gayo dance battle with other idols and they also used american music,Suju,Big Bang,and 2pm.They didnt use leaked music though.

i'm not sure if it apply for all music, but certain have this rule clearly stated, that any live performances using their music without seeking permission is an infringement on the copyright. and so, yes, they can be sued.

we live in such a litigable world, that is why people (esp. celebrities) should be smart about what they say or use or do. people are always going to find some way to sue for money. that's the business and for such a big company to find that opportunity, they will do it. there is no grace when it comes to this. pretty sad. and it really sucks cuz i love them!!!!

umm,how can they promote songs that haven't been out yet? i dont think you know that Korea is famous for illegal downloading?this just gets people to download the already leaked song and when the songs do come out officially then the original artists lose money cause people already downloaded it.

ooh that sucks. It probably wont affect the performer nearly as much as the company.
