Disney Korea sued for monopoly on movie screens

Disney Korea is being sued by a citizen's group.

'SARAMIN', a citizen's group, is suing Disney Korea for anti-monopoly laws on taking over movie screens. SARAMIN reported that as of November 23rd, 'FROZEN II' was being shown on 88% of Korea's movie theater screens. According to anti-monopoly laws, a business cannot hold over 50% of the market. They also pointed out that in France, no movie is allowed to be shown in more than 3 screens in one theater, and that in USA, the limit is 30%. As of now, moviegoers basically have no choice but to see 'FROZEN II' because nothing else is being shown in theaters.

What do you think?

That's terrible that people aren't being allowed to have more movie options. It's good Disney Korea is being sued.

Is Frozen Korea serious?? Personally I dont like Frozen that much ( only seen the 1st ) and I cant imagine the horror of going to the cinema and having Frozen as basically my ONLY option.
