    Who Owns “Black Sabbath”?

    by  • June 2, 2009 • trademark

    The Las Vegas Trademark Attorney gives us the jot and tittle of a dispute between Ozzy Osbourne and Anthony Iommi over the ownership of the BLACK SABBATH name. An interesting twist beyond the usual band name story, because Ozzy assigned the name to Iommi in 1980. What does it take to recapture ownership of...
