One Direction being sued for using US band’s name


There’s also a boyband in America called One Direction.

The One Direction “British Invasion” in America has left one U.S. band fuming.

Gossip Cop report an American group also called One Direction has filed a lawsuit against Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment and Sony Music over the UK boy band’s name.

According to the U.S. One Direction’s lawyer Peter Ross, Simon’s company knowingly brought its One Direction into the American marketplace even though there was already another group in the US going by that name.

He revealed: “Rather than change their name or do anything to create confusion or avoid damage to our good will, they chose to press ahead and come on their tour.

The upside is that U.S. One Direction, which currently isn’t signed to a record label, has reportedly seen increased YouTube views and iTunes sales for its song “2012.”

But Ross added: “We’ve been in negotiations for a month to find a resolution. In our view, the negotiations weren’t turning out to be very productive.”
