  Blue keep their name - and so do Blue!
Updated 30 June 2003, 16.57

Blue have been allowed to keep their name after a court battle with another band with the same name - and so have the other band!

The boy band had been arguing in court with the 1970s Blue.

The old Blue wanted to stop the new Blue from using the name because they had it first.

Age difference

'Old' Blue: can you tell the difference?
They reckoned the success of the new boys has damaged their reputation.

So they tried to sue them and their record label for up to 5m.

But a judge has decided the bands could both stay Blue.

He said fans were hardly likely to confuse one band with the other because their ages would be so different.
