(Rock News Desk) Producers of TV gameshow The X Factor have backed out of a legal battle over their use of a charity name for one of their pop acts.

Tens of thousands of people showed their support for the Rhythmix children's music organisation after a girl group on the show, owned by Simon Cowell, also decided to call themselves Rhythmix. When the charity tried to discuss the issue, pointing out their name was trademarked, Cowell's spokesman told them: "Get a lawyer."

The Brighton-based charity also took the producers' advice and spoke to legal counsel and now The X Factor has bowed out of a battle they were almost certain to lose. more on this story
