    One Direction have settled a dispute with an American band of the same name. The U.S. edition of One Direction have agreed to change their name to something else, and let the famous One Direction carry on. The battle between the Directions - so it's Two Directions- was sparked in 2010 when the British 1D blew the fuck up.

    The American One Direction filed a trademark lawsuit against the band and their representatives at Simon Cowell's Syco Entertainment and Sony Music. 1D countersued, of course.

    However, all has been settled and the West Coast based version of the band has agreed to change their name to Uncharted Shores. Both sides are said to be happy with how the dispute shook out.

    One Direction will release Take Me Home in November.

    Who is your favorite member of One Direction? Harry? Liam? Zayn? Niall? Louis?
