A few months ago, an American (much lesser) version of One Direction challenged the cute, British boys to a fight. Well, not a proper fight, but a legal fight in a courtroom.
The punk band claimed that they had the name "One Direction" first, but now a settlement has been reached and Simon Cowell's scampish fivesome will be able to keep the name.
Following a successful counter-claim filed by Simon (his way of saying "Um, get out…we had the name of One Direction first!"), the news was revealed in a joint statement today, which read: "All of the parties involved are pleased with the resolution and wish each other success."
The US group's Facebook page earlier today announced their new name.
They posted: "The California band formerly known as One Direction, whose albums are titled The Light and Uncharted Shores, will now be known as Uncharted Shores."
What a snappy name! Almost the opposite of the true One Direction, who've charted on both UK and US shores!
A fan tweeted the boys saying that they deserved to keep their original name, and they delightedly replied: "Well it was time to move on and break new ground!"
We wonder at what cost this came to Simon, though, as Uncharted Shores had asked for $1million (£630,000) in damages plus royalties.
We're sure the first amount is a drop in the ocean to him, but the royalties bit leaves us wondering...
