One Direction isnâ€™t an original band name after all. Before British boy band One Direction members even met on the UKâ€™s X Factor, another group of five guys named themselves One Direction. The American boy band is suing their British counterparts, Simon Cowellâ€™s record label Syco and Sony Music.
US One Direction filed a trademark infringement lawsuit, claiming they formed in 2009, a whole year before UK One Direction was born, and have also filed a trademark application for the band name before them.
US One Direction demand $1 million in damages. But thereâ€™s more. TheyÂ also want UK One Direction to change their name. Ouch. Simon is losing his touch. I thought he would have his team do some research before baptizing one of his boy bands.
I have a solution for Simonâ€™s problems. Iâ€™d like to suggest the fusion of US One Direction and UK One Direction because one awfully annoying tween boy band in the world is more than enough.
