    Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi, known as the vocalist and guitarist of Black Sabbath, only one of the keyset bands in heavy metal history, have patched up their legal differences and have settled their dispute over who rightfully owns the name Black Sabbath. In May 2009, Osbourne filed suit against Iommi accusing the guitarist of taking sole ownership of the name. Iommi said that he had the rights to the name since he has been the only constant member of Sabbath for the past 41 years. But that's all water under the bridge, as Ozzy' s spokesperson issued a statement saying that the legendary metal twosome had "amicably resolved their problems over the ownership of the Black Sabbath name and court proceedings in New York have been discontinued. Both parties are glad to put this behind them and… would like it to be known that the issue was never personal, it was always business."
