ControversiesEdit

In April 2015, CJ E&M was accused of mobilising young employees to fill the seats of its annual general meeting (AGM) of shareholders in an attempt to silence shareholders.[23]

In October 2015, CJ E&M and its US-based subsidiary CJ E&M America were sued by Seoul-based music agency DFSB Kollective for copyright infringement and violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the Central District Court of California, with the latter seeking to get $50 million. Responding to the suit, CJ E&M accused DFSB of being unhappy on the final decision on a similar lawsuit filed in Seoul in 2011. The first trial was set for 1 March 2016 after the court rejected CJ E&M's motion to dismiss the case.[24][25][26] In 2019, the final decision index of MNET's PRODUCE101 was manipulated to get involved in a series of scandals because the internal foundation of PRODUCE101 had already been identified.Some organs would have manipulated the two-hour period just because adults were brain-shocked with bribes. MNET and CJ E&M initially rejected everything and police are confirming that they are manipulated and will continue with initial research. All these scans cause a brief pause in activity at these small chains X1 and IZONE. On Dec. 30, CJ E&M and MNET CEOs publicly apologized, vowing that X1 and IZE would return to activity. But as he announced the official breakdown of X1 since Jan. 6, the scandal has caused IZONE and Chain not to want its presence. In March 2020, police confirmed that CJ E&M and MNET have yet to pay for the equivalent of X1 during their activities. Currently, MNET and CJ E&M are under fire for various miscellaneous things.
