One Direction Settles Same Name Lawsuit With Stateside Band!

One Direction Lawsuit Settled Name

Directioners can now breathe easy!

It seems as though the Brit boyband One Direction won’t be changing their name anytime soon!

We previously reported on how the chart-topping Brit group had been caught up in a $1 million lawsuit from another group with the same name!

After 1D’s record label decided to countersue back in June, it looks as though a resolution has finally been reached!

One Direction will continue to use their name, while the US-based group will be changing its name to Uncharted Shores.

Phew!

Now that that’s over with, the What Makes You Beautiful crooners can get back to prepping for their very first VMA performance on Thursday!

    This just shows that money can buy you anything. Talentless Brats. That other group probably had no other choice even though they were more than likely in the right.

    I saw an interview with the US 1D and they did have the name first, now it shows that fame and money can bully the underdog.
