Ozzy going for 50% of Sabbath...

Post by Guest on Sat May 30, 2009 11:50 am

From RollingStone.com:

Ozzy Osbourne has filed a lawsuit against Black Sabbath
bandmate Tony Iommi, claiming Iommi illegally assumed 100% ownership of
the band's name.
Ozzy is seeking a 50% stake in the "Black Sabbath" trademark as well
as royalties Iommi has already earned. The suit suggests it was
Osbourne's "signature lead vocals" that brought Sabbath its
"extraordinary success." The suit uses Sabbath's decline in popularity
post-Ozzy as proof.
This suit follows an $80 million suit Iommi filed against Live
Nation last year, claiming the company sold Black Sabbath merchandise
despite a deal that expired in 2006.
