Another win for the LOONA girls and Orbits.
On September 20, 2023, South Korean civil court ruled in favor of CTD ENM following the lawsuit filed by BlockBerry Creative, where the latter petitioned for injunctions, which included a ban on performances and activities where terms similar or equal to “LOONA,” “LOONA ASSEMBLE,” or “LOOSSEMBLE” are used.
Thankfully, the court had sided with CTD ENM and LOOSSEMBLE, promptly allowing the newly debuted girl group to conduct domestic activities following their U.S. debut schedules. The court was said to have recognized the credibility and customer appeal from the name “LOONA” following the dissolution of their contract with BlockBerry Creative, and granted the members—including ARTMS, Chuu, and Yves, the rights to their name, “LOONA”.
LOOSSEMBLE debuted on September 15, 2023, with their self-titled debut EP, and the lead single “Sensitive.” Currently, they are on their “LOOSSEMBLE the U.S. Debut Ceremony” tour.
After hearing the news of their victory against BlockBerry Creative once again, the LOOSSEMBLE girlies reacted to it by posting a TikTok by the Statue of Liberty—a.k.a. one of the epitomes of freedom.
Of course, Orbits also reacted positively to this win. At this point, BlockBerry Creative shouldn’t even be trying to pull them down anymore.
Loossemble has won their lawsuit against BBC, who had filed a civil lawsuit in an attempt to halt and ban the group's activities due to their name's resemblance to LOONA.
The court cited that the credit, reputation, and customer attraction associated with the name ‘LOONA’… pic.twitter.com/Ueu3X8oF7U

Loossemble seemingly reacts to BlockBerry Creative losing their civil lawsuit to block the group's activities in new TikTok:

This explain why Loossemble went to the US for their debut : they weren't allowed until the result of the lawsuit to perform in South Korea or at least it could have been dangerous
CTD is clever

the orbit experience is so unique like idk any other group that has 'disbanded' and split and YET still retain their identity as their old group… like both artms and loossemble (even chuu and yves) still identify as LOONA… like they're never not going to be loona
