TVB is unsatisfied with HKRIA's royalty fee. TVB's general manager, Steven Chan, said they won't play any song from those four record companies (Universe, Warner, EMI, and Sony). TVB enacted right away: Eason Chan and Hacken Lee (both belong to Universe) are out from "Jade Solid Gold" and "The 21st CASH Song Writers Quest."
According to a reliable source, singers from Universe (Eason, Hacken, Kay Tse, Hins Cheung, & Mr.), Warner's Khalil Fong and Fiona Sit, and Sony's Jason Chan will win nothing. Singers under HKRIA will win nothing as well in "TVB8 Chart Awards Ceremony." In contrast, Leo Ku and Joey Yung will have higher chances in winning "Most Popular Male Singer" and "Most Popular Female Singer."
Universe's vice president admitted Eason and Hacken will be missing out TVB's performance, "Nothing is negotiated. How can you attend when you cannot perform at all? We won't attend to 'JSG's Seasonal Round' press conference." Sony expressed to be uncertain whether their singers will attend to the press conference. HKRIA will explain through a press conference next week.
