FNC Files an Injunction Against Crying Nut to Stop Spreading Information

According to legal affiliates on July 1, FNC Entertainment has filed an injunction on June 27 at the Seoul Central District Court for Crying Nut to delete information on its official site about the issue and to keep mum until the lawsuit is over.

“The lawsuit is still going on and the results have yet to come, but [Crying Nut] is posting through its official site that CN Blue has robbed it of intellectual property rights,” said FNC Entertainment on the request for a gag order.

“We’re asking that they stop talking about their side of the story so openly and as if it was the truth.”

In February, Crying Nut’s agency, Drug Records, filed a lawsuit for copyright infringement against FNC Entertainment for a CN Blue performance from 2010 in which the band used Crying Nut’s song.

FNC Entertainment blamed Mnet, who later admitted fault, but Drug Records stayed firmin its lawsuit as Mnet has already compensated the group.

FNC Entertainment apologized for the issue, which was followed by another official statement from Crying Nut.
