SM requests copyright on groups’ English and Chinese names

SMentertainment (SM) has requested copyright possession for artist brand names including Dong Bang Shin Ki, So Nyeo Shi Dae, and Super Junior.

In the last 5 days, SM has requested at the Korea Copyright Information Research Institute to register the 4 group brand names including Dong Bang Shin Ki as representative. Actually, in June 2004, SM already had already requested copyright on toys with the name “Dong Bang Shin Ki,” but was rejected.

In addition, within 4 days, SM has requested copyright on more than 60 names, including “So Nyeo Shi Dae,” “Soshi,” “GIRL’S GENERATION,” “少女時代,” “superjunior,” “SJ,” “Super Junior.” SM has also made cosmetics, detergents, cookies, and other grocery items with these names as merchandise of the company.

It is obvious that SM’s contract conflict with Dong Bang Shin Ki’s three members Yoochun, Junsu, and Jaejoong has instigated the company’s careful and urgent concern for trademarks of the company’s groups.

If the request is approved, any company except SM will not be able to use the name “Dong Bang Shin Ki” to engage in business activity.

SM has also recently ended copyright requests for Dong Bang Shin Ki’s Chinese simplified name “东方神起,” as well as copyright requests for “SuperJunior,” “少女時代,” and “少女时代” ‘s music-related items and related services.
