Mnet trademarked it so it's kinda too late already. I feel bad but all of its rights belong to CJ, mnet and bighit

Isn't it also CUBE's fault for not trademarking the name asap? This reminds me of 'La vie en rose' which was originally CLC's comeback song but because CUBE didn't buy the rights for the song and CLC comeback was delayed, the song belongs to the producer and he/she then sold it to OTR which they used for IZ*ONE's debut song. It really sucks that these things happen all because CUBE is so slow to act so now, the name and song have their own new owners now legally. Some people would say Mnet/ CJ can give the name back but they already trademarked it so to do anything else is just waste of time and money which Mnet/ CJ won't do.
