Lady Gu Is Too Weak To Fend For Herself - Chapter 831
Before Carter could figure it out, Lu Yan said helplessly, “During the presales, Lu Corporation was always in first place. We even surpassed Gu Corporation by 100,000 bottles.”
Carter nodded thoughtfully. “In that case, why do you look so regretful, Young Master Lu?”
As soon as he finished speaking, Lu Yan glanced at Gu Zheng, who was not far away. He suppressed the anger in his heart and said sorrowfully, “But when the presales channel was about to close, all our sales were canceled.”
Everyone subconsciously looked at Gu Zheng. Lu Yan looked worried. “Because someone is suing Lu Corporation for copyright infringement. This is our Lu family’s own matter and we shouldn’t trouble you. However, I heard that you’re Mr. Han Ye’s friend, so you should be clearer on this matter.”
Hearing this, Carter was instantly confused, but since Lu Yan had already said so, she could not say anything else. She could only nod. “Young Master Lu, please speak.”
When Lu Xiang heard this, she could not wait to mock Gu Zheng. “Gu Zheng, Madam Carter is already here. Are you still not going to withdraw the lawsuit?”
Gu Zheng did not even raise his eyes.
At this moment, Lu Yan walked in front of Carter and said respectfully, “Madam Carter, it’s my honor that you’re here for Lu Corporation’s annual meeting. Unfortunately, there were some problems with the presales this time. At the last moment before the presales channel closed, all of Lu Corporation’s sales were canceled. The person suing Lu Corporation for copyright infringement is Gu Zheng.
“Gu Zheng is suing Lu Corporation for copyright infringement in Han Ye’s name. In order to expand the negative impact of the matter, he even chose to forcefully refund all deposits made at the last moment before the presales ended. At the same time, Gu Corporation was pushed to first place.
“For his own benefits, he used such despicable methods to frame the Lu family. It has affected the Lu family’s reputation and broken the balance of the entire business world. If this is the way to become the richest man in the world, I’d rather not be it!”
These words caused a commotion in the calm banquet hall. Everyone revealed disdainful expressions.
Old Master Lu, who was at the side, nodded in satisfaction. Then, he sighed. “Ah Zheng, it’s understandable for you brothers to compete with each other, but why did you play tricks behind our backs? You relied on suing us to win the sales championship. You’re too despicable. Your reputation will also be affected. From now on, who will be at ease doing business with you?”
Lu Xiang was proud of herself. “Quickly withdraw the lawsuit or bear the consequences!”
Carter listened to everyone with a subtle expression.
What was the Lu family talking about? Why did she not understand?
“Mr. Gu is suing Lu Corporation for copyright infringement?”
After a long time, Carter asked in confusion, “Is it because Lu Corporation used Mr. Han Ye’s work without permission that they’re being sued now?”
Gu Zheng’s lips curled into a cold smile. He did not expect Carter to attend the annual meeting, but things became even simpler now that she was here.
Lu Yan had a helpless expression, and his gentle voice was filled with unwillingness. “First of all, we didn’t violate the law. Secondly, Gu Zheng isn’t Han Ye. If our Lu family had really violated the law, Mr. Han Ye should be the one suing us. Mr. Gu doesn’t seem to have the right.
“Isn’t it a little too much for Mr. Gu to pretend to be Han Ye and sue us?”
At this point, Lu Yan even sighed as if he was an honest person who was forced to do this. Meanwhile, he made Gu Zheng seem like a sinister, cunning, and selfish person.
“If Mr. Han Ye sues me, I have nothing to say, but he wouldn’t do that. Madam Carter, what do you think?”
When Carter heard Lu Yan’s words, her eyes instantly widened. She looked at Lu Yan, then at Gu Zheng. She asked with a subtle expression, “Young Master Lu, did you really obtain Han Ye’s authorization?”
Lu Yan said confidently, “Of course. I’ve long received Mr. Han Ye’s authorization. I don’t know where President Gu heard the rumors that I don’t have the authorization. It’s really shameful of him to rashly sue Lu Corporation for his own benefits.
“If only Mr. Han Ye could appear and clear my name. Unfortunately, that’s impossible.”
Lu Yan looked regretful. “I’ve investigated. Mr. Han Ye has already…”
Han Ye had already passed away and there were no relatives around him. Who was qualified to sue Lu Corporation for copyright infringement?
Even if he did not have Han Ye’s written authorization, he could still say that he had previously obtained Mr. Han Ye’s verbal authorization. After all, there was no evidence, and no one could verify it. Even if Gu Zheng wanted to sue him, he did not have any evidence.
At the thought of this, Lu Yan smiled proudly. He had completely won this time.
