The Korea Music Copyright Association (KMCA) had decided to withhold the payment for FIFTY FIFTY’s “Cupid” according to internal regulations.

Just like other popular songs registered, royalties for “Cupid” were originally set to be paid quarterly by KMCA. However, the decision came after considering internal regulations. The regulations state, “The payment of copyright fees is withheld in the case where any copyright issues occur.”

FIFTY FIFTY’s agency ATTRAKT previously sued The Givers, the outsourced production company behind the act, over the alleged copyright infringement on “Cupid.”

The Givers’ CEO Ahn Sung Ill claimed in February that the company signed a rights transfer agreement to acquire the copyright shares of “Cupid” from the three Swedish composers who originally composed the song.

However, it was later revealed that CEO Ahn submitted the document with illegally forged signatures of the three music writers. Therefore, the recent copyright issue about “Cupid” is likely to remain controversial for a while.
