Pay money, and nothing else matters… The Russian demands a billion dollars from Metallica

Someone else's success rarely leaves others indifferent. That is why famous personalities, famous groups and large companies are constantly suing someone. The other day, the American rock band Metallica was sued by a Russian. The man has serious claims to the legendary rockers and wants to get $ 1 billion (70 billion rubles) from them.

Pay money, and nothing else matters… The Russian demands a billion dollars from Metallica

Ivan Khokhlov, a resident of Orel, decided to sue Metallica. The man stated that all the words and music of the band's songs, their album covers and even the name of the team itself belong to his authorship. The claim was filed on November 2 in the Arbitration Court of the Orel region and it will have to be considered in accordance with the requirements of the law.

Metallica was founded in 1981 by vocalist James Hatfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. It was Ulrich who came up with the name of the team. Perhaps, over time, the drummer of the team moved to Orel and changed his name, becoming Khokhlov, but we would have known about it.

Such lawsuits appear more and more every year. For example, in 2015, Muscovite Mikhail Razkhodnikov sued 20th Century Fox. He was sure that Hollywood filmmakers had stolen the idea of the script for the movie "The Martian" from him. The studio and personally directed by Ridley Scott, according to Mikhail, had to pay him 50 million rubles.

Ruslan Zakriev, a resident of Chechnya, also tried to sue the long-suffering 20th Century Fox film studio for $ 1 billion. A well-known science fiction writer in very narrow circles convinced the court that James Cameron stole the plot of the fantasy novel "Secret Weapon" from him. According to the stolen script, he shot "Avatar" and now enjoys fame and money that rightfully does not belong to him.

The first claim for $ 1 billion was filed in 2015, and the second, for only 10 million rubles - in 2019. Needless to say, Zakriev did not receive a single ruble, but finally became a famous science fiction writer, although not thanks to his novels. Khokhlov's prospects of getting at least something from Metallica are even more illusory. The saddest thing in this story is that the court is forced to deal with such inadequacies with a serious look, wasting time on it.
