US One Direction will not be pushed around

The US band One Direction, who are seeking legal action against the UK One Direction, have claimed that they will not be pushed around. The band are claiming for $1m in damages, as well as three times the profits that the UK One Direction have earned so far.
 
 
Dan O'Leary, the US One Directions manager, explained to The Sun, “We won't be pushed around. I don't care how powerful Simon Cowell is. He's mad if he thinks we're going to lie down, sit down or back down over this - whatever power and money he has behind him. We're not going to be pushed around by some music mogul. The British One Direction have Mr Cowell's enormous resources behind them. We on the other hand do not.”
 
He added, “In our view, we were here first. We have rights, we have talent, and we have heart. It's black and white what's been done. We asked Simon Cowell to change their name before they came here. But they ignored us, and now we're reluctantly at this point of legal action.”
 
 
Dan continued, “The facts are that we were first to use the name 'One Direction'. We've been using it since November 2009 when, with big dreams and no money, we started to distribute demo CDs. The British band did not come together as a group until almost a year later. We were the first to record an album.”
 
He then went on to wish the UK One Direction well. “To Zayn, Harry, Niall, Liam, Louis, we wish you all well, and many years of success. There should be plenty of room for both bands to grow and thrive. We hope that this dispute will be resolved soon, and then all of us can focus on what we do best - making music,” he said.
