He says Tony Iommi wrongfully claimed band name
In the suit, which was filed at Manhattan federal court, Osbourne says that guitarist Tony Iommi illegally clamed sole ownership of the band’s name at the US Patent and Trademark Office.
The suit also says that Osbourne’s distinct vocal style is one of the main reasons the band became successful, saying they became less popular when he left the band in 1980.
