Ozzy Osbourne Sues For Black Sabbath Trademark

May 30, 2009

New York (ChattahBox) – Ozzy Osbourne is suing former Black Sabbath guitar player, Tony Iommi, for half of the rights to the band’s name, which he claims Iommi has been using illegally.

According to court documents filed in Manhattan, the trademark is not legally owned by Iommi, who has been making a profit off of it for several years. The documents also point out that the drop in popularity of Black Sabbath after Ozzy’s departure in the eighties is proof that he was a large part of the success, and so deserves half of the trademark royalties.

No word on whether a hearing will be set, or a settlement will be made.
