News:: X Factor’s ‘Rhythmix’ name battle

28 10 2011

A music charity that works with vulnerable children has warned that it will be forced to cut projects, unless the makers of The X Factor settle a legal battle over one of the show’s groups.

Rhythmix is suing Simon Cowell after his Simco company lodged a trademark application to use the same name for a girl band competing in this year’s series.

The Brighton-based charity, which works with youth offending teams to create music programmes for vulnerable children and those with learning difficulties, said The X Factor namesake was causing confusion and disrupting sessions. Mark Davyd, the charity’s director, said Simco was “fully aware” that the charity, which has been established for 12 years, was already using the name, yet had pursued the trademark “without considering any moral implication or negative impact on the charity”.
