Rain Settles in a Name Dispute

2009/02/11 Source

Korean superstar Rain agreed to a deal with an American album maker, Rain Corporation, over a trademark dispute. Rain's agency, J. Tune Entertainment, reported that Rain will use "The Rain" for all his music activities in the United States. However, he will retain his name, " Rain ", for film credits. Also "The Rain", will be used only in America, thus it's not likely to confuse his fans in other regions. In accordance with the decision, Rain will release his debut album in America under the name, "The Rain". The album release is scheduled for late this year.

Rain Corporation, a Las Vegas firm, had filed for damage compensation against Rain for using the name "Rain" for his Las Vegas concert in December 2006. The company also asked for an injunction to ban Rain from using his name in future concerts. The name dispute had forced Rain to cancel his concert in Hawaii in May 2006. Rain was sued by Click Entertainment, the local Hawaiian concert organizer, for 40 million dollars in damage compensation for canceling the concert.
