CJ E&M is changing the contracts of the 'Produce 101' participants after demands by the Fair Trade Commission.

On April 25, the FTC revealed that CJ E&M needed to alter 12 terms and conditions in the trainee contracts. The original contracts barred the trainees of the Mnet show from filing lawsuits against the company for unfair editing or otherwise. Furthermore, the choreography, song arrangements, and other work by the trainees were CJ E&M's property, and the company was not required to compensate them according to the original contracts.

A rep from the FTC commented, "We started the corrections earlier this month. The condition barring the trainees from fighting harmful editing was removed, and in the case of the trainees' song arrangements and choreography, the company must correct the content to state that the trainees' have legal rights over them."

    I think you are confusing C-JeS Entertainment, which JYJ is in, with CJ E&M.

    The only person I can see possibly suing is Chanmi, but even then she still got a lot more popularity by being on the show. Also I wonder how much they had to pay JYPE to send Somi? I know each company got something even if the trainee themselves didn't, but it's hard to believe JYPE would do it for the same price as everyone else. haha

    Whoa  what? not required to compensate? I'm so glad that these things were changed. We always alude to idols, especially new groups as slave laborers or in slave contracts but I really didn't know it was to that extent. They really would have been working for free.

    I was arguing (before on AKP) that *each* PD101 Contestant should get say at least $2000 USD for THEMSELVES. That they do NOT have to 'split it' with their AGENCY or anyone else.

    I am GUESSING that each AGENCY did get PAID some MONEY; for *providing* their TRAINEES to the PD101 TV Show (so CJ E&M / Mnet).

    does that mean the trainees get some money for their performance video views and song sales?
