    Fedor Loses Compensation Lawsuit in Korea

    Fedor Loses Compensation Lawsuit

    Emelianenko Fedor, a Russian mixed martial arts fighter, has lost a compensation suit against a Korean apiculture agency over publicity rights.

    The Seoul Central District Court Wednesday ruled against Fedor and his manager Vadim Finklestein who filed the suit against the agency and the Korea Sambo Federation, claiming that a commercial organized by the former damaged his image.

    In 2007, Fedor participated in a mixed martial arts competition in Seoul and appeared in a cable television commercial. The ad, starting with a victorious scene involving Fedor in a wrestling ring, is followed by footage of a bee landing on a yellow rape flower. Then Fedor returns, drinks a bottle of the honey and says, ``I like Seonyu Honey,'' in Korean.



    Fedor claimed the agency damaged his image as a powerful fighter, demanding 1.5 billion won in compensation.

    The court said, ``He cooperated in the commercial shooting, saying the promotional copy in Korean himself, and it is unreasonable for him to belatedly make an issue of the commercial and demand compensation.''

    It said that Fedor and his 26 staff members received financial sponsorship from the agency and the federation at the time of the competition, including flights and accommodation. ``His appearance in the commercial was his due responsibility for the sponsors' financial support,'' the court added.

    I just kinda added the picture of the flower in for effect.

    Also for more effect, here is the video in question

    that's just hilarious! Image problems? I almost did a Sambo seminar at a corporate fitness center, dialed down for office-stall-type workers. Their Fire and Saftey division saw some You Tube clips of Fedor and said "Sambo is too dangerous for our facility" LOL
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    Show them the honey ad, and maybe they will reconsider.

    I will! Fedor doesn't realize how a softer image is a win for us all.

    I am trying to wrap my head aroudn how he (probably his manager) films an ad, and the later changes his mind. What is puzzling more is how his manager decided a lawsuit is prudent. I wonder which law firm he went with..

    Much like dwkfym (and the judges) I can't understand how he could have filmed this ad at the time, and seemingly not realised it would be bad for him.

    yet filing an action for something probably hopeless? I mean, korean courts have bench trials but still, I'd guess judges will favor the korean honey company. Maybe he wanted a publicity act? but how do?
