Breakout UK boy band, One Direction, has been sued by US boy band One Direction! Syco Entertainment and Sony music have been served with a $1 million lawsuit from the U.S. music group. US One Direction say they’ve been using the name since 2011 and have been selling music on iTunes since last February. The US band’s attorney commented that UK One Direction was aware of name controversy when they tried to trademark it in the US, but pressed ahead. What’s the big deal about a name change, with all their success? With their popularity, they won’t be lost in translation.
