A citizen of the Russian Federation Ivan Khokhlov filed a lawsuit against the American group Metallica (pictured) in the Oryol region court. The amount of the claim is $ 1 billion.

This claim appeared in the file of arbitration cases, but its grounds are not indicated there. As the legal telegram channel "Arbitr" clarifies, Ivan Khokhlov assures that he is the author of all the texts of the metal band's music, as well as its logo and covers. The Russian demands that he be assigned "lifetime content from the proceeds of sales of music, merchandise and other Metallica".

Recall that the Metallica group appeared in 1981. It was founded and also named by vocalist James Hetfield and drummer Lars Ulrich. Over the years of activity, ten studio albums have been released, which have received platinum status more than once.
