On February 21, singer Doojoon responded to a question about the "B2ST" trademark issue at a press conference for tvN's 'Mr. Baek The Homemade Food Master Season 3' in Seoul.


The entire cast of the variety show attended the event showing support for the new season.


After departing from Cube Entertainment, Doojoon, Yoseob, Kikwang, Dongwoon, and Junhyung are not allowed to use the name B2ST / BEAST as the trademark is owned by Cube.


When asked about the trademark issue, Doojoon politely responded, "There isn't really much I can say about it.  I don't know much about the issue. Since this is a press conference, I am being more cautious with my words."


Meanwhile, along with Doojoon, Yang Se Young, Nam Sang Mi, Lee Kyu Han are the new members in the third season of 'Mr. Baek The Homemade Food Master' with chef Baek Jong Won.  The first episode of the third season aired on February 14.

Cube need to move on, beast already open the new chapter in their career by making their own company. Treat and promote your artist better instead of wasting time and money on lawsuit. I'm sure beast will be more thankful to cube if they can continue promoting with the name beast.

Maybe they can stylize their name as B^st instead XD Like how you would write "1st" with the 'st' as a superscript XD

they could do that but it is sort of a big risk as well cause if cube sees that they are trying to go around trademark issue there is going to be major problems.

He's smart to not say anything since his words could be used against him in the future (which will probably include a lawsuit with this messy situation). I sincerely hope that they will get their name back since, honestly, CUBE really has no use for it: They can't use it somewhere else (without getting hate) and they won't go back to them (with that awful management). Good Luck on the show though! I hope you will enjoy the food!

cube can literally make another group using that name if they really wanted to. since cube owns right to the group name he would have to literally win in a lawsuit and hopes he wins or straight out buy it from his ex employer. it is better to just think of a new name.

Obviously, legally yes... would it be a good idea? No. Imagine how people would react when they would reuse the name with different people? It would look like members don't mean anything and that the name is just important since it makes money; therefore, everyone would be enraged by the idea. This was already shown when Cube announced that they would reform BEAST. Also, the members probably carry pride in their name. Who wants to give up a title that they worked hard to make known? Yes, law suits are messy and it's easier to just get a new name but what if it's more than a name to them?

clifford_ahn x22610x Thursday, February 23, 2017

if it really important to them then they would fight to keep the name no matter the consequences. but these days they rather make a new name rather than going through the hassle and waste a lot of money. while they all the members work hard to build the brand but in the end all the name represent is a brand. i know that is harsh but in the business the members are in that what it represent. in this case the most logical situation is that they are most likely going to build a new brand for themselves instead of fighting it to reduce cost and not have a bad image. it all depends how much their current brand means to them.
