CJ E&M Corporation (Hangul: 씨제이이앤엠 주식회사; RR: CJ E&M Jusikhoesa), formerly O Media Holdings Limited (Hangul: (주)오미디어홀딩스; RR: Jusikhoesa O Midieo Holdingseu) is a South Korean entertainment and media contents company. It is a subsidiary of the CJ Group.
In 2010, O Media Holdings was founded as a merger of the following companies: CJ Media, On-Media, Mnet Media, CJ Entertainment, CJ Games, CJ Internet, and the media division of CJ O Shopping. In 2011 it changed its name to CJ E&M, short for CJ Entertainment and Media.
CJ E&M currently has four main divisions:
- CJ E&M Broadcasting Division - owner of cable television channels
- CJ E&M Film Division - producer and distributor of movies and some TV dramas
- CJ E&M Music Performance Division - producer and distributor of music releases, also an agency for musicians and some actors
- CJ E&M Smart Media Division - operator of various entertainment and media websites
- CJ E&M Game Division - publisher and developer of games - spun off in 2014 as an independent company named CJ Netmarble (Hangul: 씨제이넷마블; RR: CJ Netmabul).
In April 2015, CJ E&M was accused of mobilizing young employees to fill the seats of its annual general meeting (AGM) of shareholders in an attempt to silence shareholders.
In October 2015, CJ E&M and its US-based subsidiary CJ E&M America were sued by Seoul-based music agency DFSB Kollective for copyright infringement and violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act in the Central District Court of California, with the latter seeking to get $50 million. Responding to the suit, CJ E&M accused DFSB of being unhappy on the final decision on a similar lawsuit filed in Seoul in 2011. The first trial was set for March 1, 2016 after the court rejected CJ E&M's motion to dismiss the case.
