I think it's a matter of principle. You can be in the right all you want, but still be a total dick. And it's a shitty thing to be a total dick to a charity, especially when you're just making money like it's nobody's business. "You" referring to the X-Factor here.
True. I don't know. I don't think saying get a lawyer is total dick, it's a legal issue and that would be the "safe" way for the show to handle it.
Although, how do they know the X Factor winner would be the number 1? Haha
