[Trans/Summary] Avex sues the venue that held JYJ’s Japan Charity Concert

Posted on July 25, 2011 by jyj3

Summary of the article in “Shukan Gendai” –Weekly times- Newspaper

On the 10th of May, a warning was sent to the Sumo Organization, clearly requesting the suspension of the event.

Then, a representative from the side of the Sumo Organization called on the 12th of May, saying “figure out your trouble between the involved parties (T/N: JYJ and Avex) because we’ve already allowed the use of the venue, and received the rental fees” the representative informed them rudely. (T/N: the quotes from the representative were written in informal speech that can be considered rude when spoken in such a formal situation.)

“Right before the concert on the 2nd of June, we sent them another warning, but it was useless” a person from Avex said. Avex took all the temporary methods to stop the concert but, it is now forced to take legal actions against the Sumo Organization, the management company and others seeking compensation of 143,400,000 Yen (T/N: approximately $1,834,200) and is taking the case to Tokyo district court.

The compensation was estimated based on the calculation of the profit that Avex would have gained if they held the event as the management company. “All the other concert venues in Japan knew about the trouble between us and the Right-wing gangster organization, and refused to host the concert.

Why was the Kokugikan (T/N: sumo hall) the only one to accept them? You start to suspect that they have connections to the other side (T/N: Right-wingers)” says a member of Avex management.

(Part not related to the lawsuit omitted)

Concerning this lawsuit, the Sumo organization stated, “The petition for the lawsuit has not been confirmed yet, therefore we cannot answer any questions”

For a sumo organization who is covered in scandals and barley managing to finally hold a tournament, the opportunity of hosting a concert for such a popular idol group was an irresistible temptation, but the final result was that they made an enemy of such a huge recording company.

Ok, i have taken some personal notes regarding this act by AVEX:

– personally, i thought AVEX really have lost their mind by suing the venue. for my understanding, as i dont familiar with Japan Law, the so called. ‘contract problem’ is between AVEX and THSK/JYJ. so it doesnt concern the venue at all. if JYJ and Cjes decided to hold the charity concert in a public parking lot or public garden or in a forest, they will sue those places too?

– this event was for charity, as in non-profit event. i believe people already knew, that CJes n JYJ themselves even asked fans to didnt bring any gift for them, bcoz the even was meant for charity, to help Japan. but AVEX, as a company in Japan, who supposed to support any activity helping their fellow citizen who, even until now still need help, suing the venue with a compensation “estimated based on the calculation of the profit that Avex would have gained if they held the event as the management company” so for them, its not ‘contract problem’ like they said as a reason why they keep blocking this charity event, but because they wont gain any profit from the event. i mean, really AVEX? its for charity to help your people and all you can think is the profit?  i believe this shown true face of AVEX.

– “Why was the Kokugikan (T/N: sumo hall) the only one to accept them? You start to suspect that they have connections to the other side (T/N: Right-wingers)” says a member of Avex management.”

its so funny, how AVEX keep saying about the ‘right wingers’ (as in yakuza) in everything that related to JYJ. first they accused CJes CEO have a connection with yakuza. but we all know that it was AVEX who introduced JYJ to him and how Matsuura even praised him alot. then as we all know, now he keep saying bad thing about CEO Baek.and accused him have realtionship with ‘yakuza’. and now, the accused Sumo Organization also have a relationship with ‘right wingers’ (yakuza) also. i mean, come on AVEX, must you accused everybody who dare to refused u as they have a relationship with yakuza ? beside, even if they do, what is the relation between them having relationship with ‘right wingers’ with them let JYJ having a charity concert? at least they have a heart to let the charity to help their own people happened.

“You start to suspect..” well, avex, i believe it just you who suspect like that, since all people care is how the event could help people in Japan who in need and still need help.

and i believe people also heard the news that in fact it was Matsuura himself that the one who have connection with ‘the gang’ (1) (2)

really, Avex, how low can you be???
