Stellar ordered to pay double contract fee to cosmetics company for breaking contract clause

Cosmetics company 'A' has won their suit against the old and current members of Stellarand their label The Entertainment Pascal.

'A' had signed a contract with the Stellar members in July 2016. However, the members posted about other cosmetics products on their SNS, and the label sued them for breaking the clause of not promoting other cosmetics company's products during the length of the contract. Stellar's label had argued, "The two company's products have different customer bases and cannot be called rivaling companies. Also, you cannot say personal actions are advertising another company's product."

However, the court thought otherwise sentenced The Entertainment Pascal and the members to pay double the amount that they had been paid for being the models.

The Entertainment Pascal will be appealing the decision. They said, "We only had a contract with the company only for print media, but 'A' created a separate video and distributed. We have won the suit against them on that point. The members and family were hurt by the video distributed by 'A'. We cannot abide by this decision and will be appealing the decision."

They added, "It was also revealed during the suit that the advertisement agency signed a contract for advertisement using the members' faces without our consent, but that advertisement agency cannot be reached. We will also reveal the facts to this and fight it during the appeal."
