On the 17th, the Courts made it known that they have dismissed all claims filed by SM Entertainment, which is the agency's formal objection against JYJ's injunction as well as its exclusive contract suspension injunction.
This means that the Courts have emphasized their decision that the contract signed between the members of JYJ and SM is invalid and that the members' independent activities are guaranteed. They have also publicized that SM Entertainment cannot interfere with JYJ's activities in the entertainment activities on the claim that their contract with the agency is still valid.
The Courts laid down the verdict that SM Entertainment's formal objection is invalid on the premise that ▲the exclusive contract in question can be categorized as a submissive contract as it does not give the celebrity the freedom of choice and instead forces him to follow the orders of the entertainment agency, ▲the members of JYJ could do nothing but follow SM's orders as they were placed in an inadequate position compared to SM in terms of bargaining power, ▲the exclusive contract's extreme long-term subordinate nature cannot be justified by pretexts including the decrease of investment risks and ensuring a stable entrance into foreign markets, ▲other than the long-term nature of this exclusive contract, clauses including that which gives SM Entertainment direct superintendency over JYJ's every move as well as that which calls for excessive compensation for a breach of contract strengthen the submissive nature of this contract and place the members of JYJ in an unilaterally disadvantageous position.
Regarding the injunction filed by SM to suspend the exclusive contract signed between the members of JYJ and C-JeS Entertainment, the Courts dismissed the injunction on the grounds that, ▲as long as the verdict made on October, 2009, which includes the decision that SM must not interfere with JYJ's independent activities in the entertainment industry, is valid, SM's request to suspend the validity of the business commission contract signed between the members of JYJ and C-JeS Entertainment is not allowed as it goes completely against the previously stated verdict, ▲and stressed that SM cannot exert the direct superintendency, given to them by their exclusive contract, over JYJ's activities in the entertainment industry as of now.
