GOT7 make history as 7 members reportedly receive all trademark rights

AKP STAFF

GOT7 are making history as the 7 members have reportedly received all the trademark rights for the group.

According to fans, leader Jay B previously moved trademark rights for the group to his own label 528Hz, including rights for album production, light sticks, live performances, and more. It was then revealed he obtained the rights to GOT7's unit names, which he shares ownership with his fellow members. 

As of May 12, reports say the 7 GOT7 members are the owners for the full trademark rights for the group. If reports are true, GOT7 are the first ever K-pop group to transfer all trademark rights to the members themselves. 

Stay tuned for updates on GOT7.

I really hope that this is not false information. It would be a huge step towards recognizing groups as the sum of their members and not just property of their agencies. Members change and dreams change, but being a part of a group or band will always be a part of every idols journey. Not being allowed to identify with such a big part of their lifes is stupid. At least JYP doesn't seem to be petty here. Like other companies are. Yes SM, I'm looking at you.

JYP is a good company. Most companies would fight tooth and nail to stop them. SM I'm looking at u and yg... all though there are laws for this most companies hv found ways to go around the law by trademarking the members names eg YG. Most of their musicians can't leave because their names are trademarked to yg eg lisa and gdragron..... not every group can start again with a new name like beast did aka highlight. So good job jyp and good job got7
