I WILL NOT BE BULLIED!

STOP BULLYING

 

I WILL NOT BE BULLIED!

http://7westpublishing.com/

PICK ON SOMEONE YOUR OWN SIZE!

I AM STILL FIGHTING FOR THE

RIGHTS THAT YOU DENY!

TRUTH WITH PROOF

NEVER GIVING UP!

This is what I think about your

threat of me having to wait until I

am 65 years old for freedom.

I didn’t imagine bullet holes,

Music Business Mayhem Reaches Courts

I didn’t imagine bullet holes, family members assaulted, friend and house shot up, etc…

 

With all that was mentioned, courts ignored actual events of violence, denied that stress can attribute to and cause physical ailments.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A GAME TO YOU?

THE FIX WAS IN…

 


This was the first Lawsuit filings submitted to courts 

on June 24, 1996; The Fix Was Definitely In…The Courts completely ignored everything that was provided 

 in this initial case filed combined with Amended Complaint filed on May 20, 1996 below!

 

 

 



Again I ask, Does this sound like a Game?

Shuffle Masters and Musical Chairs

This Post is dedicated To Rph. Sandra for judging me for privately venting even though I have every right to be angry.

The only game being played is 

 

MUSIC: Shuffle Masters and Musical Chairs

Let’s explain how the music industry plays Musical Chairs. I had to see who was running the label back

when I was under contract. I had to know who profited from this mess.

Of course, these individuals listed below were definitely involved and/or aware of publishing contracts,  song submissions, ‘gutted’ musical works and actions which led to multiple Copyright Infringements:

 

Richard Blackstone     Dave Renzer             Paul Katz

 

 

These were some of the same people who shortly after profiting, began transferring me back and forth over the phone (keeping me on speakerphone) rejoicing, mocking and 

laughing about Zomba being Number 1.

 

Moving On Up The Line

 

The owner’s of the company were  –

 

Clive Ian Calder

 

 

 

After an unspecified “ethical disagreement,” Calder

bought

 

Simon’s stake in Zomba and became the sole owner in 1990.

 

 

 

I was signed to Zomba in 1993 and I think I have an idea of 

 

 

what was meant by ‘ethical disagreement.

 

 

 

In the late

nineties, Jive expanded its success to include teen pop

 

phenomenons such as Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync and Britney 

 

Spears, all of which topped the

charts. In 2002 he sold Zomba for

 

US$2.74 billion to the

German-based media group Bertelsmann.

 

Though

he was offered a position with BMG, he instead chose to

 

stay on temporarily as

an advisor during the integration period,

 

but left the business in 2003. The Jive Records brand

was

 

discontinued in October 2011, with their artists being moved 

 

to RCA Records.

 

AND

 

Ralph Simon

 

Simon co-founded the independent Zomba Group of music 

 

companies (now a

subsidiary of Sony Music

Entertainment)

 

with Clive Calder in the 1970s. In the mid-90s, he was 

 

Executive Vice President of Capitol

Records and Blue Note

 

Records in Hollywood and started EMI Music’s global New 

 

Media division.

 

On

May 20, 1996, I filed a lawsuit against BMI,

 

Zomba and Jive because of their

lack of

 

response to my request as to how BMG, MCA, 

 

EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive

have released

 

songs which blatantly infringe upon my 

 

copyrights. I submitted these

lyrics and

 

melodies to Zomba.

 

Although people are moved like musical chairs, 

 

it is easy to see how moving employees back 

 

and forth from BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram 

 

and Jive may have gained access to  songs 

 

which blatantly infringe upon my copyrights. I 

 

sent these lyrics to Zomba; which they deny receiving. 

 

Conveniently their denials were received in 

 

envelopes marked ‘Comics’.

 

 

 

Letter stamp-dated 10-23-1995, envelope postmarked 10-24-1995

Letter stamp-dated 11-27-1995, envelope postmarked 11-28-1995

 

 

This Letter Of Explanation was also Provided to the Courts

Note: Clearly explained

Each document listed as Exhibits

Both; The Revised

Complaint and the Letter of explanation

 

‘set forth in numbered, short, plain

statements that clearly

 

state my argument, basis for  claim, legal theories,

supporting

 

documents listed as exhibits, provided jurisdiction and 

 

demand for

judgment as required by Fed. Rules on Civil rules

 

of law. I presented all of these documents along with 

 

copyrights to  the

courts with copyrights.

Complaint and the Letter of explanation ‘set forth in numbered, short, plain

The Fix Was In…

Courts denied

request to assign counsel, 1st Request -June 24,  1996.

 

Note: U.S.

District court seal, dated Jun 24, 1996 at 10:45 am…AND

 

Note: On June

24, 1996, I provided court with 2nd/Revised Complaint (LISTED ABOVE) that was ‘set forth in

short, plain statements’ as required by law WITHIN THE ALLOTTED TIME -per courts order listed below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Courts had already signed an order of dismissal ready and dated July 22, 1996 – (a month prior to Defendants Answer to Complaint dated August 7, 1996).

 

Court ignored my request in accordance

Federal Rules of Civil procedure, Rule 16 (a)(b)(c); Also under U.S.C., Title

15 28,19,49; Under 28 U.S.C, 1915(d) – Plaintiff request counsel be

assigned…preventing protraction due to lack of management.

 

Note: Case dismissed

prior to Zomba Response dated August 7, 1996

 

On July 22, 1996,

Courts dismissed my case I never had an opportunity to go before the judge and

be heard. I never had my day in court.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My revised complaint

complied completely with Fed. Rules of civil procedure but the courts ignored..

 

 

 

My amended complaint was clear and concise. 

 

This is what I refer

to as the jedi-mind-trick…just wave your hands and say the words and it never

happened. I didn’t imagine bullet holes, family assaulted, friend shot up, etc..

 

With all that was mentioned, courts

ignored actual events of violence, denied that stress can attribute to and cause physical

ailments.

Note: Case was dismissed  July 22, 1996 but this was prior to Zomba Response dated August 7, 1996 – see Defendants response below. FIXED!

 

 

 

 

 

Does this sound like a Game to you?

 

I assure you that this is no game. 

 

Here I am twenty plus years later…still fighting for scraps and being stripped of everything from housing to basic necessities for decades.

 

This was my Objection to Order of Dismissal

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note: This was 2nd copy of Request for counsel to be

assigned–submitted July 29, 1996   Judge Bernard A. Friedman-Courts dismissed my

case before Zomba could respond…

 

 

 

 

When you sign a publishing contract, it should be ‘a given’ and fully

understood that they would want to pursue royalties. Conveniently, they can use

this contract to basically take your work or even allow your works to be used

without pursuing your interest.

The kicker is, in the beginning they exaggerate their interest in

offering you an opportunity for recording artist deal while working you for

materials along with little up-front compensation but stated in their defense

that ‘I refused to pursue claims’. Pursue claims…with what?

I never had the chance to go before the Judge. He completely

disregarded my copyrights and ignored my request for counsel.

Ultimately, in spite of having copyrights being

secured by myself, copies of materials, copies of receipts for overnight

mailings, and other correspondences submitted to Zomba representatives; Zomba

stated in response regarding songs that were in question that it was unclear.

However; prior to filing suit against them I received a letter stating that

they were investigating my claims. In fact, Zomba denied receiving or having

any works in spite of my return receipts.

Got to Love It -Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Speech!

These people never asked permission and were never coerced but willingly assisted in the activity to defraud!

 I submitted list of songs, copyright copies, and contracts request for assistance; however, I received my materials back from all the attorneys, groups, and agency, along with letters expressing no interest in representing me. 

On May 20, 1996, I filed a lawsuit against BMI, Zomba and Jive because of their lack of response to my request as

to how BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive have released songs which blatantly infringe upon my copyrights. I sent these lyrics to Zomba.

Meet some of the people who directly took part in defrauding, manipulating and who are responsible for contributing & helping to violate my rights!

Richard Blackstone

(I can tell you from direct personal experience what his skill set was in the late 90’s – hiding & snaking).

(I can tell you from direct personal experience what his skill set was in the late 90’s – hiding & snaking).

“Richard brings many years of experience in music publishing to BMG,” Masuch said.  “Knowing him and his impressive skill set for more than 15 years already…(I can tell you from direct personal experience what his skill set was in the late 90’s – hiding & snaking).

 

Prior to joining WMG, Blackstone was President of Zomba Music Publishing. Originally a transactional attorney, Blackstone joined Zomba in 1989 as Director of Business Affairs.  Recognizing his talents in both business and the arts, he was later promoted to the dual role of Head of Creative and Head of Business Affairs, a position that included oversight of Zomba’s Country Music division located in Nashville. Having spent most of his career at Zomba, Blackstone helped grow the business from a handful of staff to what would become the largest independent music group of it’s time. He ran one of the two primary businesses that comprised those assets, which eventually sold to BMG in 2002. Once BMG acquired Zomba Publishing, Blackstone was made President and was given the additional responsibility of overseeing Brentwood Benson Music Publishing, the leading contemporary Christian music publisher.

(During the 20+ years of torture from the music industry & personnel)

Blackstone has been a highly respected executive in the entertainment industry for nearly 20 years.

In 2005 Blackstone was appointed to the position of Chairman and CEO of Warner/Chappell Music becoming responsible for all aspects of Warner Music Group’s worldwide music-publishing division operating in over 35 countries.

On November 11, 1994, due to the inability to contact Richard Blackstone – Zomba, rep over the phone regarding remaining balance for contract; my husband (at that time) and I had decided that we would go to New York to speak with Blackstone – Zomba, rep in person. Upon our arrival, we did not receive the welcome we were expecting and although we received check, Blackstone – Zomba, rep was unavailable for both days to speak with us.

Once we returned to Michigan, we still received phone calls and correspondents that suggested that they were still interested in working with me and arranged for me to interact and work with their producers and other writers.

 blackstone introduction large

fully executed Zomba contracts

Blackstone sent this list of songs that was included as a part of my contract but they deny any knowledge of later:

 songs listed

Their defense was that ‘they can choose which songs/works or even if they pursue claims of copyrights infringements’ (Especially, when it’s them – the company that was sent each song lyrics and melodies who are/were directly connected to all labels accused of copyright infringements).

 

They wanted to settle for over 40+ songs for $1,000.00)!

 zomba tried to offer 1000 for over 40 works after proof of allegations

NO I DID NOT SIGN THAT MESS!

This was a joke and I was completely insulted and NO, I didn’t sign that mess…I have been fighting EVERYONE SINCE!

 

        Note: Paul Katz was sent a copy of letter regarding advance. I never knew he was affiliated with Zomba, prior to Paul Katz’s name was listed on check as signer.

Blackstone and Dave Renzer were right there playing the games directly so in spite of what you read. I personally experience their deceipt and involvement with the copyright infringements throughout those years. Everyone I spoke with was having a good time playing with my lyrics. Oh they loved them all while I was sending them and then when I started to get back to the money it was attack, deny and the games.

 dave renzer red hair

The private investment firm brings in the former CEO of Universal Music Publishing Group to lead its new music publishing project… 

 Universal Music Publishing Group Chairman and CEO David Renzer announced today (4/26) his plans to exit the company. He has been with the publisher 15 years, starting in 1996 with MCA Music Publishing. Renzer was promoted to his current post in 2004.

Haim Saban, the eponymous firm’s CEO and founder, said in a statement. “And we have great confidence that David, with his vast experience, will help us create an exciting new music publishing company together.” (He can definitely help with the exploitation part of the industry).

 

Renzer spent 15 years as chairman and CEO of Universal Music Publishing Group, where he controlled the operations in 50 of the company’s offices around the world. He oversaw  more than 100 music publishing acquisitions, including Polygram, Rondor, Zomba and one of the industry’s major moves, BMG Music Publishing.

He also supervised Universal’s signing of major artists such as Paul Simon, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber and the catalogs of Jimi Hendrix.

Renzer began his career at Zomba Music Publishing, where he remained for a decade.

By 1990, Zomba was worth $225 million with over fifty companies. Contrary to most other record businesses at the time, Zomba spared no time with frills. “The Jive offices were crummy, cardboard desks. They just really did everything on the cheap”, says attorney Gary Stiffelman. The company began to attract more major label attention when EMI attempted to buy the company, but was ultimately turned down.[7][8] This period also saw Ralph Simon leaving Zomba at the start of the decade. Through an unspecified “ethical disagreement”, Calder and Simon ended their relationship of over two decades.[7] Calder bought out Simon’s half of the company and subsequently gained full control of the company.[1] In late 1991, BMG furthered its relationship with Zomba buy purchasing a 25% stake in their music publishing business, allowing them to sub-publish Zomba compositions in foreign markets.[1] BMG continued with a 20% purchase of Zomba’s records division in 1996.[16]

This was a rough time for me. I could feel the treachery. I found out later what happened to the songs. They were all over the radio.

        Note: Paul Katz was sent a copy of letter regarding advance. I never knew he was affiliated with Zomba, prior to Paul Katz’s name was listed on check as signer.

Blackstone and Dave Renzer were right there playing the games directly so in spite of what you read. 

I personally experience their deceit and involvement with the copyright infringements throughout those years. Everyone I spoke with was having a good time playing with my lyrics. Oh they loved them all while I was sending them and then when I started to get back to the money it was quickly turned to attack, deny and the games.

c. Letter sent to Zomba/Jive regarding Betrayal

February 23, 1995 Letter I sent to Zomba regarding blatant betrayal:

First, I addressed her. After she expressed satisfaction with works; suddenly, all the positive words of encouragement and compliments turned to insults. It was smash and grab…

This is prior to all my so-called unmarketable song lyrics and melodies were all over the radio…

Music Business: It’s a dirty Game – Page 152

Almost every song that I had written was passed along for some type of payback or vendetta. For a songwriter to hear their melodies is like recognizing your child cries or your name being called repeated. It reminded me of the story that I had heard about a famous writing team. It was told that one of their girlfriends was actually writing the lyrics but was never given credit or monies. I was told that it wasn’t unheard of to emotionally abuse, reject and cause severe duress to influence suicidal actions. I was told that she killed herself. One can never imagine that pain of being used and discarded; then to top it off tortured and mocked.

If it weren’t for the viciousness of the people, it would be easy for me to believe that the stories told were all lies to distract or influence response that would cause a deadly reaction. I was thrown to the wolves and it was ‘okay’. It was nothing; I was nothing – a Ghost.

In addition, the music wasn’t the only thing used. I couldn’t watch a television program without the ridiculous similarities to my current household topics and concerns. I know I am super sensitive right now so maybe I am tripping (at least that’s what I told myself. There is no chance of this many similarities and topics over this period of time.

It shook me, I cannot lie. I was broken inside.

I trained my mind to keep moving, changing my thinking pattern, never focusing on anything for too long. I stopped listening to the radio for a long time. I changed my whole life in order to cope because I have no intention of giving them the satisfaction of my complete self-destruction.

I submitted list of songs, copyright copies, and contracts request for assistance; however, I received my materials back from all the attorneys, groups, and agency, along with letters expressing no interest in representing me. On May 20, 1996, I filed a lawsuit against BMI, Zomba and Jive because of their lack of response to my request as to how BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive have released songs which blatantly infringe upon my copyrights.

This was a joke and I was completely insulted and NO, I didn’t sign that mess…I have been fighting EVERYONE SINCE!

 

 

Courts advised complaint must comply with F.R. Civil procedures; short and plain statements, numbered with demand for judgement. Court gave (10) ten days to respond; So I did…

On June 24, 1996, I responded with request for counsel to be assigned to prevent protraction due to lack of management (within legally alloted 10 days time). Note: U.S. District court seal, dated Jun 24, 1996 at 10:45am…AND

Note: On June 24, 1996, I provided court with 2nd/Revised Complaint that was ‘set forth in short, plain statements’ as required by law.

UPDATED. – TO BE CONTINUED…

I am certainly not going to do nothing!

Obviously, noone cared about the fact that I am still being subjected to the horrors of their actions. I guess that I am supposed to just sit here and continue to be every ones punching bag and scapegoat for decades. Nope. I begged for this nightmare to be stopped. I guess that since I am not a prominent attorney or have rich rich friends my public harassment and unwarranted abuse is acceptable. 

I tried to be civil but they told me to just die, 
I tried to appeal to their human side 
but they have none, 

I tried the court’s but they got to them, 
They used their position of power 
and minions to terrorize, 

They used friends and family to break your heart wearing down your resistance, 

They tried to pressure you to take your own life 
but I refused, 

I wrote a book about it which includes proof of deliberate violations but they threatened.

There is no other way but to put it out there EVERYWHERE. 



They made the choice to engage in stealing lives 

but they don’t like the spotlight on them and their 

inhumane activities but they can publicly exploit 

ANYONE and then cause unimaginable 

hardships on individuals while portraying 

victims as the perpetrator of heinous acts.

Note: I filed a lawsuit which provided these companies names to the courts and other entertainment attorney‟s for using my works; which, included lyrics and melodies. 

All the while they were one in the same, working together. These songs were played on the radio by major artist signed to BMG, EMI; throughout the years starting after Zomba music publishing contract.


Their defense was that ‘they can choose which songs/works or even if they pursue claims of copyrights infringements’ (Especially, when it’s them – the company that was sent each song lyrics and melodies who are/were directly connected to all labels accused of copyright infringements).

This was a rough time for me. I could feel the treachery. I found out later what happened to the songs. They were all over the radio.
Building on the successes of the Jive label, Zomba began expanding its reach by purchasing and creating new labels, and by creating new divisions that helped expose more people to Zomba artists and services.

This is prior to all my so-called unmarketable song lyrics and melodies were all over the radio…
On June 24, 1996, I responded with request for counsel to be assigned to prevent protraction due to lack of management (within legally alloted 10 days time).


Music Business: It’s a dirty Game – Page 152
Almost every song that I had written was passed along for some type of payback or vendetta. For a songwriter to hear their melodies is like recognizing your child cries or your name being called repeated. It reminded me of the story that I had heard about a famous writing team. It was told that one of their girlfriends was actually writing the lyrics but was never given credit or monies. I was told that it wasn’t unheard of to emotionally abuse, reject and cause severe duress to influence suicidal actions. I was told that she killed herself. One can never imagine that pain of being used and discarded; then to top it off tortured and mocked.
If it weren’t for the viciousness of the people, it would be easy for me to believe that the stories told were all lies to distract or influence response that would cause a deadly reaction. I was thrown to the wolves and it was ‘okay’. It was nothing; I was nothing – a Ghost.
In addition, the music wasn’t the only thing used. I couldn’t watch a television program without the ridiculous similarities to my current household topics and concerns. I know I am super sensitive right now so maybe I am tripping (at least that’s what I told myself. There is no chance of this many similarities and topics over this period of time.
It shook me, I cannot lie. I was broken inside.
I trained my mind to keep moving, changing 
my thinking pattern, never focusing on 
anything for too long. I stopped listening 
to the radio for a long time. I changed my 
whole life in order to cope because I have 
no intention of giving them the satisfaction 
of my complete self-destruction.

I submitted list of songs, copyright copies, 
and contracts request for assistance; 
however, I received my materials back from 
all the attorneys, groups, and agency, along 
with letters expressing no interest in 
representing me. 

On May 20, 1996, I filed a 
lawsuit against BMI, Zomba and Jive because 
of their lack of response to my request as 
to how BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive 
have released songs which blatantly infringe 
upon my copyrights. I sent these lyrics to 
Zomba.
