Subject: Request for Legal Representation 

I was in New York this week on October 2, 2013 and I am contacting your offices to request legal
assistance or representation in obtaining resolution and closure regarding my current legal situation.
Although
I am a Citizen of the U.S. of America, 
I have been advised that I am in the wrong country.
                                                                                                                          
I am contacting ANY AND ALL to request legal assistance and/or representation, resolution and
closure regarding my current legal situation; which involves, copyright infringements, breach of contract, civil rights violations, mail tampering, court tampering, violent acts, etc…
I have compiled proof by using documentation, public records, contracts and copyrights in my book
entitled, Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!, Music, Murder and Mayhem -Nonfiction and INVISIBLE: Living in America without Rights 2013.
Although, I would prefer to reach a fair legal and resolution, I have not been given much
of a choice in the matter.This is an autobiography that shows step by step, the tactics used to steal lyrics, intimidation methods to coerce, and how major music companies attempt to outright steal the lives of struggling artist.
This book contains supporting documentation; contracts with Zomba (major music publishing
for Jive Records – BMG-Zomba (EMI) now placed within Universal Music Publishing Group making them the world’s largest music publishing business, Copyrights, public records, court documents and personal dated journal entries that cannot be disputed nor denied.

SUMMARY:

Although I have compounded legal issues, I have tried to provide brief numbered details of some of what has occurred below.

I am contacting your offices because there are compounded situations but to provide a summary:

1. My father is incarcerated for allegedly killing a Detroit Police Officer, Stanley Rapaski and Cass Czerwinski. I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski.  

First, anyone who kills a police officer – their family is definitely persecuted and is unable to obtain assistance from the system; especially, if that person is a prominent member of society.  

Everyone knows that police stick together and as a matter of fact, the other accomplice conveniently died while being apprehended in that case. Human nature…2. I wrote the lyrics and melody that were used for a television sitcom many years ago. These lyrics were given to now prominent music producers, Lee Marcus and Jake Salazar. Of course, I didn’t find out about the use of the song until years later.

3. Since the individuals who placed the first songs didn’t offer contract or monetary compensation, I kept writing with other local producers until I was offered a 50/50 co-publishing agreement with Zomba after a disagreement with Larry Hatcher and Art & Rhythm’s Larry Campbell.

4. Zomba’s pub agreement made reference to taking co-ownership of all songs written by me; including material prior to signing. (Remember I was not aware that the previous songs were used yet).

I spoke with two entertainment attorneys; the fact that previous attorney’s would encourage signing a contract for little dollars when they know that all entertainment lawyers would most likely require a large retainer in the end demonstrates that there is a problem.

5. Zomba representatives then attempted to pressure me to sign management contracts with producers that were on their roster whom I had never met. 

While contracted with Zomba, I submitted over 40 song lyrics and melodies that were discussed in detail with their representatives and some listed directly in the contract.

6. After submitting these songs, someone associated with the business brought it to my attention that an artist by the name of Desire (real name Monique), with the help of Michael Powell, Art & Rhythm’s – Larry Roc Campbell, Paul D. Allen, and Larry Hatcher has received a 6 album deal with Warner Chapel label releasing single.

I heard personally and have others confirm blatant similarities to my work and have been derived in full and/or in part from my copies submitted to Paul D. Allen of M. Powell’s – Vanguard Studio, Larry Hatcher of Hatcher Hits, Larry Roc Campbell of Art & Rhythm and David R – Zomba, rep. I worked consistent with all parties listed for a period of time. I have split sheet for “Baby Stay with me” and I heard this finished by her.

7. After notifying Zomba of this deal, I became subjected to a multitude of tragedies, threats and intimidation. 

Almost every song lyric and melodies were used in part and in full. These songs were being played on the radio for years. I will provide you with attachments to show copyrights.

8. Zomba used publishing contract to steal lyrics and melodies, then denied possession of works (even though material was mentioned in publishing contract, the use of intimidation methods to coerce, and now everyone is asking for an extreme amount of money for a retainer.  

I understand that litigation cost but this should not be allowed to be used as a scapegoat to avoid being held accountable. 

This is the ‘game’ that prevents resolution and allows these tyrants to continue their actions. 

9. I then attempted to file suit and although the amended complaint that complied with F.C.R. and was filed within courts guidelines. 

The judge dismissed before reviewing factual evidence and ignored actual acts of violence and request for counsel to be assigned. Basically, I have documentation that clearly shows misconduct.

10. During this ordeal, I maintained my copyrights and always required signed documentation with any co-writers.

11. Within two months of completion of my Registration of Copyrights for all of the songs provided, suddenly the Dekalb County Probation submits a violation of probation report to the Courts and they issue a warrant although I was under the supervision of Michigan Probation and reporting as directed.

12. The timing of the execution of this warrant was in sync with everything that was going on around my trials with seeking assistance from attorneys and all of the many groups. 

I had filed the copyrights listed below and they were processed just months prior to the illegally obtained warrant being issued.

1.             PAU001720136 / January 7, 1993 “Collection I – Tiwanda.”

                Lovelace, Tiwanda, 1967 – 18 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES,           1 RAP, 2 POEMS

2.             PAU001721382 / March 4, 1993 “Collection II – Tiwanda.”

                Lovelace, Ne Ne – 6 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES,

Although per Inter-State Case Reports, Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation AS DIRECTED by Courts, there were no efforts were made to contact and/or provide Notice of Hearing.  

Again, there was no notice of hearing, revocation hearing, or opportunity to be heard.

13. Dekalb County police then used this warrant to modify my 1st Offenders Act, changing status to conviction. Records reflect multiple arrests, repeated offenses and provide misleading transmittal when 4 of 5 items are in reference to the same (original) First Offenders Act offense. 

Dates and charges are inaccurate and/or inaccurately presented.

This warrant was signed May 19, 1993 – expired July 31, 1997.

In a letter used to take housing from the Lovelace family, a police agency stated that the warrant was valid in 2005 and that they were unable to execute due to budgetary constraints. 

However, when I lived in Georgia 2003/2004 there were no efforts to arrest? 

I believe the warrant was serving its purpose, which was to inflict damage, hinder and harm. Prior to filing this case, I submitted a notice and a request for correction to all parties involved since it was preventing employment and shelter.

13. I have proof of misconduct show the courts switched Judges after plaintiff filed for Summary Defendants ignored service of Summons.

I believe that this system intended to hold me accountable for others actions and all under ‘color of law.’

I am requesting legal assistance and/or representation, resolution and closure because these entities are still using their power and positions to continue to oppress. 

I have documented proof of civil rights violations, mail tampering, court tampering, violent acts, etc…

Since this has snowballed, police were using illegally obtained warrant to modify records, take public housing and take employment. Georgia unjustly threw my case out but shortly after a public defender was able to quash warrant. 

I am stuck in this free for all, caught up between multiple major entities and trying to obtain my freedom from this chaos.

Even now my record has not been updated or corrected properly because this case was once again used to have me detained in handcuffs and refused entry into Canada in 2013.


I have other legal issues that have occurred of which I have been compiling; such as, screen shot, documents, etc…that prove that I am being deliberately deprived of my rights to liberty and life. I refuse to let them murder me quietly behind the scenes. 

I have attached some of the documentation to support my claims and I hope that you will be able to assist or refer this to someone who can.

Thank you,

BIO – 

Tiwanda Gail ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace was like many other unknown artist who was used and then discarded by the music industry. She has survived countless attacks on her character, and has lived to tell the tale as a true survivor.

Many have found Lovelace’s book to be an interesting and thought-driven read. The owner loves helping new authors and artists and wants to ensure that none of them go through what she did. Having been in the music industry since 1991, our company has more than 21 years of experience. 
 
Facing many struggles as an outcast, a black woman, a wife, a mother, and as a writer and lyricist, Lovelace has written many songs to which she never received credit. 
 
She was the co-writer of the song, “What Can I Say to You (to Justify My Love)” for the artist Hi-Fives, for which credit was never given.
 
Lovelace was contracted with Zomba, a major music publishing company for Jive Records, which is now BMG-Zomba publishing company. It was then placed within Universal Music Publishing Group, becoming the world’s largest music publishing business.
 

Instead of administering her publishing by securing copyrights and ensuring that her works were protected, the publishing company neglected all their contractual obligations. However, what they didn’t count on was that she had secured copyrights and maintained all related documentation.Here, Lovelace exposes the corruption in the music industry in her book. She proves it using supporting documents, copyrights, public records, court documents, journal entries, and contracts with Zomba™/Jive Records™ (BMG™-Zomba™ which is now Universal Music Group®).

 
For many, getting into the music industry seems like a dream. However, for our owner, Tiwanda Gail ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace, it was a complete struggle. Never receiving credit for the songs she has written, Lovelace is now determined to help others before they sign a contract with a major company.
