If it is just a book..Why So Much Opposition?

Created and Written By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace
These titles reflect the story of an individual who is being deprived of all opportunities to a life without being subject to bullying and persecution. 

The bullying and persecution is orchestrated, instigated and implemented through the use of multiple entities, races and groups through manipulation and mass deception?

These titles expose a ‘system’ of targeted abuse; wherein, blacks and whites are manipulated into assisting in the bullying and persecution of specific individuals considered to be outcasts. The goal of this deliberately executed bullying and persecution’s is to induce suicide and/or forced submission to further dehumanization as a form of revenge. 


This ‘system’ and abuse of power combined with the process of violating rights to privacy usually leads to rape, death and murder.


You have to ask yourself, why is it that every attempt to bring attention to actual events of deliberate deprivation of rights, the response is to minimized and ignored? Why is so important to belittle, discredit and ‘bad mouth’ every publication written by Lovelace. Why is there so much opposition against a few books written about the behind the scenes of big business and the judicial system?

These titles provide supporting documentation which implicate numerous prominent and well-connected individuals. These publications that were released and promoted by Seven West Productions, LLC /7 West Publishing are definitely exposing decades of corruption.

Please consider that the information on these blogs, websites and titles are also in direct conflict with multiple entities and groups. 

How much effort do you think those negatively affected would put into avoiding accepting responsibility? What do you think that those major entities and prominent individuals would do to prevent exposing decades of corruption and deliberate wrongdoing? Using influence, position and power, how hard would it be to take the attention from the message?

 
I do not know what you receive on your end but if you are receiving copies with poor grammar and poor punctuation…there is a good chance that you are not receiving genuine publisher approved final copies. 
When I
first released my titles MBIADG, the first thing that was done was the
different outlets were highlighting the unedited copies, displaying parts out
of context and emphasizing every typographical error while not focusing on the
actual events, atrocities and entities involved in the many civil and criminal
violations that were listed in each book. 
 
When I wrote Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!. I was under duress and I did not think that I would survive long enough to finish. After realizing that many of the direct culprits had twenty years head-start, I felt that I had to fight through the decades of lies and manipulations of those in position to misrepresent. 
 
I wasn’t trying to be ‘Author of the Year,’ I only wanted to defend myself against the ridiculous amount of bullies and monsters that was given direct access and permission to try ti induce my suicide. Even now, I write so that I can be heard by those in a position to stop this abomination. I am fighting those who are in a position to sway many, to use technology to block websites, tamper with mail and scheme. 
 
The purpose of the book was to generate income in so that I could free myself from being subjected. After certain individuals realized that some of the details in the book exposed the ugly truth, then came the threats and more pressure from everyone. One of those threats was, “You won’t see a dime from the books!”
Being in dire straights, I began to promote my book using a few outlets for sale and for POD; such as, Google Books/Play, eBay, CreateSpace/Amazon, LSI-Lightning Source/Ingram, etc…
 
Suddenly, there was a flood of other sellers who were offering my book at lower prices. As time passed, I eventually restricted the POD availability due to no sales were being reported but there were used books being offered for sale. How can bookstores and vendors offer used books, if there were absolutely no sales reported? 
 
The more that I investigated, the other sellers became more aggressive. One retailer actually had my book for sell for over a thousand dollars, as if it was a game. It is overwhelming to have to learn how to overcome and remain steadfast but I learned how some of the major entities are flooding the titles with sellers by using POD services. This allows other sellers to offer your title at a lower price without them having to actually purchase a single copy. 
When I released my recordings, they reflect my thoughts and the message is far more important to me than the grammar used. You do not have to be an accountant to recognize when an individual and their business is being deliberately impeded, undermined and hindered when the numbers reflect major interest but no sales across many outlets in over two years. 
Although there have been many marketing strategies, social media campaigns and hundreds of thousands of websites visit…through comparison of stats, it is clear that there is major effort in deterring interest and great opposition with regards to these publications. 
As a result of major opposing entities ‘warring,’ the violence that trickles down into the ‘streets’ and neighborhoods is then blamed on whomever is caught in the crossfire. Individuals who cannot address the true culprits, unite in their efforts to bully, harass, persecute and block resolution out of hate and/or misplaced anger.
The racism, sexism and violence stemming from all sides is responsible for fueling this nightmare. Neither side, at any point actually acknowledged or recognized human beings caught in the crossfire, left ‘bleeding in the streets.’ 
So no matter how my sites are compromised or how many times that my writing is belittled and attacked…I’m not buying into this deprivation as being justified or warranted.
Unfortunately, it has become commonplace for people to completely disregard heinous acts and disregard mistreatment under the guise that my writing allegedly reflects poor grammar. I am supposed to be this uneducated, ignorant and unworthy individual who cannot compile a sentence. 
In addition to the usual discriminatory practices of many, I am constantly bombarded and subjected to repeated unnatural events. I am only trying to exercise my rights to live so I’m
sure a few typos can be overlooked. 
 
At first, it was a matter of surviving the music business and my being forced to listen to my own lyrics and melodies on the radio as they were used to taunt me for decades as some sort of revenge. Secondly, although  I have secured contracts and copyrights, I am bullied and deprived of my rights to seek any legal assistance. Thirdly, while being deprived of my civil rights and rights to life, liberty and justice, I am being denied the opportunity to conduct business as a publisher to write and sell my publications with regards to my life experiences.
 
I am only one person forced to endure a conspiracy to deter any support and prevent the sale of publications simply because they expose the truth. Public display is implemented and specifically designed to allow and encourage deprivation of rights to housing, employment and basic needs.
 
I am the only person in the whole world that cares about my freedom and my struggles. I am using the only method that is available to me to fight for the right to exist and to be recognized as a human being. I copy and paste between article. I am constantly having to battle major opposition, racism, sexism and stupidity. 
As far as the threats, my loved ones were already being subjected and harmed long before I started fighting ferociously so not fighting is not an option. I have no other choice but to continue to press on… 
The only thing that these people can do is to focus on attacking my writing, while uniting in hate!
Everything on these website and publications are true and they provide supporting documentation for all allegations. There is no disputing the information found on any of the websites used to expose the atrocities that have continued for decades. 

I have not killed anyone. I was only exercising my rights to prevent everyone from murdering me. All of the sneaking and snaking that was and is being done against me can easily be considered attempted murder.

I only pursued a writing career to free myself but me commit murder? No, that’s those who chose to do this to me. I was not going to just do nothing while being slaughtered for others secrets and lies. When monsters come for you, you fight…wouldn’t you? 
 
From the bottom to the top, this should not be placed all on my shoulders. All I did was try to
stop everyone from trying to murder and blame me by doing the only thing that anyone
subjected to torture would do… 


When there is corruption and major bullies, shining the light on the situation causes the
guilty to back off.
 
I also provide videos that support an unnatural amount of coincidental incidents of abuse, see: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNy9HU9btouh0S8iqokGuxw.
 
Below is a recent example of common methods used to deter and take the focus away from exposing corruption! 
 
The company below hindered use of their affiliate marketing application without merit or just cause by preventing the sharing of my article –  “Little Girls Beware: A Guide to Surviving”  and by unfairly blocking access to their program. 
BoostSuite declined sharing of this article attributing the reason to ‘poor grammer, poor formating’ AND then blocked my ability to access their App within my
BigCommerce portal for 
http://shop.7westpublishing.com/.
BoostSuite’s email to Lovelace:
 BoostSuite Email insinuating poor grammer
First of all, I am not illiterate. This article – “Little Girls Beware: A Guide to Surviving” does not reflect poor grammar, poor formatting, etc… The only explanation is that they did not want me to use their Affiliate Marketing program to share my business products and
publications in an effort to create awareness of a growing problem.

Note from Author:

I have had people completely disregard the most heinous acts and mistreatment under the guise that my writing allegedly reflects poor grammar. I am supposed to be this uneducated, ignorant and unworthy individual who cannot compile a sentence. I am super stressed, constantly bombarded and subjected to repeated unnatural events who is trying to exercise her rights to live so I’m sure a few typos can be overlooked.
I am one person. I am the only person in the whole world that cares about my freedom and my struggles. I am using the only method that is available to me to fight for the right to exist and to be recognized as a human being. I copy and paste between article.
I am constantly having to battle major opposition, racism, sexism and stupidity. Everything that I release, write and share has to go through many programs, people and technology. I use spell-check and attempt to review every article. When I release my recordings, they reflect my thoughts and the message is far more important than the grammar used.
Please consider that the information on these blogs, websites and titles are in direct conflict with multiple entities and groups. I have provided a multitude of supporting documentation which clearly shows opposition. I do not know what you receive on your end but if you are receiving copies with poor grammar and poor punctuation…there is a good chance that you are not receiving genuine publisher approved final copies.

Bullies: The Problem with Justice…

Bullies: The Problem with Justice…

Most behave as if there is nothing that we can do to stop this Roller-Coaster filled with strife called, Life. There are those who believe that we allow whatever nightmares to continue as if some actually deserve to be bullied.
Some insinuate that the answer is to sue, fight, go to this person or this group….but the fact is because of obstruction, mail tampering, officials ignoring violations and the courts refusing to acknowledge actual supportive evidence, etc…most are stuck in a twisted, ‘free-for-all’. (See proof of how courts ignore its own rules and disregard actual evidence at Misconduct)

Like many others, I have filed lawsuits, complaints. Upon learning that in addition to having to address both civil and criminal abuse, I also had to deal with ‘obstruction of justice’ from the courts and its clerks. I was forced to file complaints of judicial misconduct that contained clear and blatant proof where the clerks edited, withheld filings, ignored courts own rules, demonstrated blatant bias and much more. For your review, please visit: https://requestforlegalhelp.com/complaint-of-judicial-misconduct-ga/

Sometimes I am truly in disbelief that some of the things are really happening but of course someone will always remind me just how cruel a place the world can be (as if it is a normal part of life).

INSERT FROM MUSIC BUSINESS: IT’S A DIRTY GAME! NONFICTION – This title calls attention to the events that lead to major entities being exposed, corruption, greed, lies, hypocrisy and even murder.
“According to Michigan Department of Corrections, my father – Robert Heard, was convicted of murdering a Detroit Police Officer, Stanley Rapaski and the bar owner, Cass Czerwinski. I was told that my father was with someone else who was attempting to rob a local bar while Rapaski was there off duty on January 10, 1969. There are many different versions available online.
The officer and the bar owner, Cass Czerwinski, was shot and killed in the process. I wonder if Cass Czerwinski, the bar owner’s family were influential, powerful people that could keep their names out of the press. 
I am still researching both parties; however, with the level
of disregard for civil and human rights, judicial misconduct, violence…I
can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative
Joseph C. Czerwinski because there are entities utilizing great and powerful
influence; going to extremes and great lengths to prevent resolution and to
deter any real assistance.”
In this book you will learn about actual individuals who are connected to the major music publishing companies that profit and who yields power; such as, Paul Katz. Katz alleges to have interest in civil and human rights; however, it was under his reign at Zomba, that all kinds of allegations of copyrights infringement were happening to their writers, IN HOUSE….
It was Zomba’s own contracted writer(s) who was being subjected to alleged copyrights infringement (after musical works were submitted and discussed with their reps.). These infringements were followed by intimidation tactics, violence, and much more…. what hypocrisy!
Everyone at Zomba was in on it, supposedly trying to show support for the other major players that were manipulating for their own benefit and for their own financial goals.
Learn about how every resource and outlet is used in an effort to initiate hardship on those who insist on exercising their rights while discouraging their desire to seek resolution as if to say, ‘Let it go!’ ‘We do this to everyone so there is no hope…’ ‘We buy your friends and family support…’
Learn the entire process which demonstrates egregious intent to influence a sense of hopelessness.

 

When the smell of violence was fresh and ‘street justice’ was being used inflict further damage, the initial response from professionals (both, legal and official) was, “(We) can’t help you…” or the return of packages requesting assistance with a brief response declining any interest.

After decades of deprivation, harassment, intimidation, obstruction and threats of violence… suddenly it becomes the time for the so-called ‘statutes of limitations’ justification to be used to deter proper resolution. Any legal professional is clearly aware that there are no ‘statutes of limitations’ on civil rights violations.
It has become customary for the Artist/Writers to be disregarded when it is time to share in the profits…Doesn’t that sounds like slavery!
Everyone has a story but the atrocities that have been allowed to continue blatantly will shock even the most weathered individual…
This book is not just for the aspiring artists and songwriters but is also beneficial for those who are interested in learning how the world that we live in actually operates.

I stumbled upon a website while researching Katz and I found an article who mentions a Katz:

“…In addition to building on its success, BMG will “continue to fight for our writers’ rights,” Katz says. “[Writers] are not fully acknowledged for [their] contribution in the streaming market.”

When I read comments like this one, I know from personal experience that this is bull-crap. Keep in mind that I clearly understand that all people are familiar and have publicly witnessed many artist suffer similar tragedies without intervening. 

It’s almost as if the individuals or entities who claim and/or which are positioned to support civil and human rights are not only least likely to assist but they are actually directly associated with or most likely guilty of being the violators themselves. 

It’s like when you search online for Civil Rights Lawyer’s…the first one that displays in the results are the least likely to assist. It’s almost like a ‘deliberate, defeatist’ attitude that is meant to dissuade.

Unfortunately due to my situation, I find that it is best to video or record most interactions because of previous encounters where I experienced ‘abuse of power or position.’ In most cases, I do not resort to using these recordings UNLESS the interaction is deemed extremely and unnecessarily offensive or demonstrates egregious intent to influence a sense of hopelessness.

See March 3, 2016 video of response from a Civil Rights Organizations representative’s ‘defeatist’ attitude and who clearly has no interest in actually providing assistance. Visit: https://youtu.be/CJ4LUmCg7tc?t=2m30s

I have been running around the entire U.S., requesting assistance with my civil and human rights violations that are associated with my major co-publishing agreement, copyright infringements, breach of contract, obstruction of justice and much more but NO ONE will even address these matters. Officials have disregarded multiple civil and criminal activity. 

See mail receipts of List of Governmental, Local Agencies and Groups contacted Requesting Assistance:

Page 3: https://requestforlegalhelp.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/governmental-local-and-groups-contacted-page-3.png

Everyone who is in a position of addressing the many atrocities that have been forced on individuals, seek to present themselves as upstanding, decent, law-abiding citizens who actually care about civil rights and human rights; yet, they turn a blind eye and continue to profit from the violence like it’s a sport. 

While the Artists/Songwriter’s name is sullied and drug through the figurative ‘mud,’ those who profit hide and pretend to separate themselves from the inhumane treatment and dehumanization of many writers and artist who fall a victim to a ‘system’ that vilifies ANY who would call attention to the truth. 

Although I have compiled numerous supporting documentation, I have found it difficult to obtain a lawyer that will acknowledge any aspect of these legal issues. I have had a few attorneys who have (in an effort to dissuade) quoted some outrageous amount that they know that I do not have. 

In preparation for an attorney, I have compiled a list of questions but I have not even had long enough contact to even ask…

Which aspect of the case would you be interested in?

Is it best to divide these legal issues under multiple legal representation?

Are you in a position to get entities to the table?

What strategy would be taken to address civil and/or criminal violations? 

How to address governmental inaction and obstruction?

With C.O.M/JUDICIAL COMPLAINT, which Jurisdiction or would you implement a change of venue?

Have you ever sued or been involved with similar cases (on either defense or prosecutor)? If so, what was the outcome?

How long does a case like this usually take before resolution is obtained?

Do you prefer litigation or settlement?

Which strategy would be best to decrease time frame? 

Would continuing to publish aid or cause harm to process?

Is Criminal and/or Civil litigation necessary with these blatant violations?

How would you began?

I guess that the first step would be to find someone without ties to the music industry or politicians, who actually believes in individuals having civil and human rights!

Who would you choose after 20-30 years of unnatural, deliberate abuse without no real
intervention from anyone? 
Not unlike most people who are in bad situations or stuck between multiple major opponents, I picked what any normal, logical person would – my side.
Seriously, the real problem really starts when some believe that they are all powerful and that they can pick and choose who it is that are allowed to have rights and those who can be victimized or not. 
 
I heard a comment today regarding Justice and how it is perceived by those in positions and I was surprised.
There was reference to Justice being awarded only or solely based on how many other
individuals deem that a matter is important enough to address. Immediately I’m thinking, ‘Here we are again, back on the ‘power in number’ scenario….
Let me say that there has been decades of those uniting for many plights but there
have been few real, lasting victories. 
 

I certainly hope that this is not an excuse for inaction because if this is the case then I would have to disagree. 

Of course, the logic behind the whole ‘power in numbers’ idea is commendable; however, as usual and in most case the idea is perverted, manipulated and misused by those in positions and for personal gains.

Again, it seems like an excuse and it does not justify ignoring (any) atrocities. 
 
To say that an individual or small group would have no recourse  unless supported by many, would be openly accepting a form of slavery or enslavement. 
 
This would mean that as long as ANY group, individual or party could initiate intimidation, violence, etc… in an effort to defer or dissuade interest in the support of resolution. That is all that would be needed to deny justice.
There is a huge problem with Justice, if it solely relies on the support of the many
instead of what is right and wrong. Are we that far gone to simply except words
and reasons that justify evil? It is the same when referring to ‘statute of limitations’…as long as individuals/entities/officials refuse to even acknowledge that civil rights violations have no statutes of limitations. 


The whole purpose of not having ‘statutes of limitations’ on civil rights violations is because of the ‘system’ which abuses its powers, positions, connection, etc…in order to run the standard ‘time frame’ for criminal activity and in an effort to evade being held accountable. So it’s business as usual while all assistance is blocked, hindered and rendered useless because of simple phrases; such as, ‘no good deed goes unpunished.’ 
Under this interpretation or this philosophy, this creates and substantiates the need
for gang memberships and other groups. It is human nature for some to misuse power and clearly there will always be some who seek power out for misuse. There are those decent, moral people but they steer clear of the responsibility of leadership usually because they know that ‘power corrupts’ and that ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely.’
 
Yet; those in position will be the first
to vilify but the individual does not matter unless they can be the first to
sway major interest form large numbers. 
 

What happens to those who do not belong (whether by choice or not)? Do they not merit Justice or do they not matter?

Again, this book is not just for the aspiring artists and songwriters but is also beneficial for those who are interested in learning how the world that you live in actually operates.
In addition to downloading your copy, you should have a
printed copy for your bookshelf!

 

 

 
 

 

 

 

This letter shows that they were 
considering my civil rights!

 

 

 

 
 As you can tell by the time frame, I didn’t just run and write these tell-all books.
 
I waited, hoped, tried and begged for help prior to making this decision. I still hope that this book will reach the right person that is in a position to assist in resolving this matter. I am still going to look these officials in the eyes and find out why it is that people can bully others out of their rights using civil rights violations, intimidation, mail tampering, violence and more?

Questions: I have a list of groups, agencies, and attorneys that I contacted via mail or emails but either, no one could find a way for me or my attempts were hindered. In the past I had a co-worker reference me saying, ‘she is waiting for someone to save her’ but what he didn’t know is that I have always been able to save myself. I didn’t want to do this alone but I have no choice.
Many are definitely cooperating with my civil rights violations, probably under the
guise of protection or due to the Patriot Act. 
 
I am not a terrorist nor do I wish anything bad on America. 
 
I live in America and I have no rights! 

I have to admit that there are a lot of lawsuits filed that are based on real civil rights violations that actually happened but without legal representation combined with hard, physical evidence…some of these lawsuits are only filled with accusations, pain and despair. See the blatant disregard by the courts and officials @ 

Complaint of Judicial Misconduct

 
It has been quite an experience and hopefully this will be the beginning of my
healing. There is no real justification for the things we experience sometimes
but to get past the pain we have to really examine our situations to ensure
that it doesn’t continue. I waited twenty years for some kind of decency but
decency was refused. I grew tired of the roller-coaster ride, the games and
lies so I bear it all openly in these titles.

These publications, websites and comic book are derived from the
following titles:
 
‘I think I see why they keep justifying why I am left to die, subjected to continued inhumane treatment, thrown to the wolves so to speak.’
‘Every time I focus on fighting for my freedom and due to my life being so public; there is always some sick twisted jerk that goes out and commits some heinous act or crime that would inflict pain on an unsuspected party.’
Then, instead of blame being placed on whomever great  idea this was, I have to face the backlash. I am deeply saddened by the use of violence and for the families of those affected. I do not intend to be bullied out of my civil rights, privacy and peace of mind.
I didn’t ask for this nor was I asked or told anything regarding the reason for public
display or deliberate mistreatment.
 
And YES, ALL LIVES MATTER!
Of the many legal battles to be fought, I launched this  campaign to shine the light on one of the major entities who are in a position to inform, assist and uphold justice but have ignored atrocities and request for intervention.  
 

What if you were posted up, displayed and misrepresented without your knowledge or consent? No one has ever said anything to me regarding why I have to be subjected to having no rights to Life, Liberty and Justice!

Orchestrated Revenge…

Created & Written By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace 
E.O.A.A. Weekly News Article: April 20, 2016
Blogarama - Arts & Entertainment Blogs
Hiding Their Dirt for Decades!
 
It is not important to me the ‘who’ but it is very important to explain that I have made every effort to try to correct this injustice. Understanding the complexity of this world and its court system, I reached out to many for assistance by providing supporting documentation and requested intervention from the beginning.Let’s look at the facts:

Consider my family background of being raised as a Jehovah’s Witness and my father, Robert Heard currently serving a life sentence in Michigan for allegedly murdering a police officer – Stanley Rapaski and bar owner – Cass Czerwinski (also referred to as Casimir A. Czerwinski, Cass Czerwinski and Casmere Czerwinski). I don’t know who these people were but the media was very careful when mentioning his name or referencing the latter. 

I wonder if Cass Czerwinski, the bar owners family were influential, powerful people that could keep their names out of the press. I am still researching both parties; however, I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski. 

That’s why everyone came for me and why I was wired up, kept in the dark and manipulated for years. A secret campaign was launched based on lies to destroy in an attempt revenge. The victims, their friends and family of all this carnage have been messing me over, my children and now my grandchild like it’s my fault. While everyone turns a blind eye and pretends like it is justified. 

Everyone knew about the plans to induce suicide, the rapes as a child, the messed up –mother- who was listening to Jehovah’s Witnesses (NY) when it was decided no college. The only thing that makes sense as to why this much bad could be inflicted on one individual is if it was all arranged.  

People say that people were trying to help but that was not help. You don’t help by hurting. They came to profit from this mess and fight over money. They took and pushed me away or either treated me bad or showed ill-intent so I left. There was no communication so if anyone truly cared, it was not shown. I cannot read minds.

I didn’t plot revenge because I didn’t get my way. I didn’t seek out people to do my ‘so-called’ bidding;however, I didn’t run around kissing ass, either.  

National news but I cannot get a lawyer to represent me after clearly proving that this ‘system’ and those in position did nothing to stop attempted murder. 

Murder, is that not what people run to punish and lock others up for committing but everyone can decide that allowing my attempted murder is acceptable? Every outlet from privacy violations, the public, television programming, radio, employers and people used their influence and power to inflict harm and induce suicide. I refuse!

Clearly, those behind the scenes had come to agreement and the decision was made. because people used their influence and power. Every outlet from privacy violations, the public, television programming, radio, employers to inflict harm and to attempt to induce suicide. Many were physically hurt to persuade mass cooperation and cooperate, they have (at least where I’ve been!

Every adult knows how corrupt and evil this world is but I have to walk around subjected, persecuted and harassed for decades… People killing cops. Cops killing black boys and getting away with it. Child killer get major money donated for legal defense but I can’t get a lawyer. 

Every lawyer that I ever had in screwed me. Black people alienating me and stabbing me in the back as if I am the cause. Forcing me to live impoverished, without support (I cannot sell a $10 frame without the supporter being persecuted, too). Family betrayal due to financial gain or due to intimidation and threats. 

People laughing and mocking (periodically) saying, “it isn’t my money…” Officials turning a blind eye at corruption while looking to put me in prison in an effort to quiet the truth.  It looks like Motive to me…

After years of seeking assistance in the U.S., I attempted to travel to Canada…But conveniently, I was detained…Handcuffed in Canada – This was no coincidence. I had a suitcase full of my books.On September 18, 2013, I attempted to check out Canada by booking a six night vacation to familiarize myself with their rules on providing my publishing services in Canada.

I was still subjected to comments and minor chatting that was in relation to prison or locking someone up. As soon as I arrived in Canada, as I exited the gate all I could see was HSBC everywhere. 

As I went through security; I had this tall manly looking woman security with the name tag – Wakowski who was anxiously walking towards me as if she had been waiting for me, needless to say that I was questioned, then was detained and denied entry into Canada. 

I was paraded in front of other officers and one had the nerve to wink at me. One of the other officers, told me that he had connects in the United States. I was detained/arrested and placed in a cell overnight; when I was awakened I had Officer Bathan place me in handcuffs that were so tight that they left a mark. 

It was clear that the U.S. FBI doesn’t want me going too far because that supposedly dismissed warrant/record has not been dismissed from their system. This was no coincidence.

 



A male Canadian Police stated, “I have connects in the U.S…”
_____________________________________________________

My employment was used as a means to harass me daily but I endured. It was a circus, daily harassment and a full campaign of ‘who let the dogs out!’ 

 

 

What are the odds of my experiencing harassment on the job from Management and Co-Workers AND the overwhelming presence of that same employer while being detained and prevented from entering Canada?



Just because I am not running around hysterical, broken spirited and falling apart does not invalidate my claims. 

This has been a life time of this bullshit. I went through the years of ‘tears’ to the ‘battle of the rage’ and I have survived the ‘love me, love me not’ games. I have personally dealt with the realization, the pain of loss and betrayal. I am and have always been built to last. Nothing about my life has been easy, ever! 

All of the mind games, manipulations and abuse has made me strong – mind, body and soul. Besides, there is no doubt anymore. I have been able to separate myself emotions in order to clearly be able to recognize this ‘situation’ that I have been bullied into. 


I can understand why it is so important for this information
to remain hidden. If this was to be released, it would reflect poorly on each
entity. It is probably because these are the same entities that are supposed to
uphold and protect the rights of the people.
 
What kind of message would this send to the people? It would
appear that the life of one individual in comparison to the prominent, upscale,
influential people is most important.
The Courts clearly did not follow procedures. They ignored violence as shown below:

The legal system, police and courts refuse to acknowledge any claims in any case spanning years and even recent criminal acts involving police or judicial misconduct…while the public is used to spread rumors to justify modern day enslavement.
The courts ignored actual violence and facts while attributing ‘violence’ to being a product of plaintiffs ovarian cystectomy (female surgery)…

 

The Courts/Clerks ignored Fed. Rules and Procedures when obstructing justice as shown here:

Rules for Judicial-Conduct:

8. Action by Clerk

a) Receipt of Complaint. Upon receiving a complaint against a judge filed under Rule 5 or 6, the circuit clerk must open a file, assign a docket number according to a uniform numbering scheme promulgated by the Judicial Conference Committee on Judicial Conduct and Disability, and acknowledge the complaint’s receipt.

Filing a Complaint of Judicial Misconduct or Judicial Disability Against a Federal Judge (pdf)

COA CLERK DID NOT FOLLOW PROCEDURE because there was no docket number assigned and the stamp used was not initialed. In fact, when I question him about the Docket #…he gave me the copy of the first page that was stamped with different stamp and it was initialed. 

When I met with Kennerly (Court of Appeals Clerk) to give him the requested unbound copy, he provided me with a copy of 1st page stamped C.O.M. with a Docket # (finally) but it was nothing like the copy that the courts initially returned.

Bonus copy of INVISIBLE: Judicial Misconduct Exposed provides actual documentation that further proves blatant unquestionable misconduct!

The music business was used as a tool to exact revenge…
The Courts was used to deprive rights; cementing this oppression…

WHO WOULD YOU TO TURN TO?

IN ADDITION TO OFFICIALS IGNORING BLATANT CRIMINAL ACTS,

I HAVE HAD TO FIGHT EVERYONE WHILE VIOLENCE CONTINUES 
I HAVE HAD TO LISTEN TO MY 40+ MUSICAL LYRICS AND MELODIES ON THE RADIO FOR DECADES WITHOUT RECEIVING ANY ROYALTIES! OFFICIALS ON ONE SIDE WHILE THESE ENTITIES ON THE OTHER…!
The only game being played in 
 

MUSIC BUSINESS: ‘Puppet 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    
 
Richard Blackstone
Dave Renzer

These were some of the same people who shortly after profiting, began transferring me back and forth over the phone (keeping me on speakerphone) while rejoicing, mocking and laughing about Zomba being Number 1.


Follow The Money!!!

 

        Paul Katz 
 
Paul Katz was C.C.’d on my Co-Publishing contract advance:





 

 


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’.

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 is not a matter of not having Copyrights!!!
This is not a matter of not seeking or having Legal Representation!!!
This is not an issue of signing away percentages because it was only
a Single 50/50 Co-Publishing Agreement with Zomba, a Major Music Publishing!
NO MANAGEMENT AGREEMENTS OR CONTRACTS!
Not only did this Major Music publisher Neglect to Protect their own 
Writer but Failed to Pursue Interest in Copyright Infringements
associated to hundreds of millions of dollars…
Why do you think that a company that has a (50) Fifty Percent Interest in Musical Works would actually refuse to pursue claims which were supported by factual documentation, split-sheets,
certified mail receipts and certified, sealed copyrights?
Why is it while you attempt to pursue your claims and allegations, you are met with Violence, Harassment, Accusations and Coincidental Hardships? 

I may not have the money to advertise, promote and market like I need to but this is unacceptable! I don’t want to hear no words. There is no excuse for this mess to continue. I never plotted to hurt anyone and this should have been resolved decades ago. I am an unaligned female without connections but nobody should be able to deprive anyone of the rights and ability to receive or pursue proper resolution.

THIS ENTIRE PROCESS IS SHADY, UNETHICAL, EXTREMELY QUESTIONABLE AND ILLEGAL…

Nobody asked or explained  anything to me Before or After I began to be victimized;

privately or publicly! I never plotted to hurt anyone and this should have been resolved decades ago.

I, Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace am an unaligned female without connections but nobody should be able to deprive anyone of the rights and ability to receive or pursue proper resolution REGARDLESS OF SEX, RACE OR FAMILY BACKGROUND.

WHO WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO TURN TO?

There are always tragic incidents that are seemingly close to times where I have felt pressure to ‘stop,’  ‘let go’ or received strong messages to just stop pursuing my plight for justice. It is if others are being hurt in an effort to persuade others to help harm me and my family. Of course bad things happen but there are an increasing amount of coincidences.
There is another instance where it was as if there may have been some interest in finally resolving this nightmare or people were doing the same things that have been done for decades; wherein, numbers are referenced but they are soon followed by violence or jokes and mocking.
In order for you to see it for what it actually is, you must consider the facts presented.
Considering all of the important and well connected individuals involved in assisting with these atrocities for financial gain, am I supposed to run to any one of these people listed for help. If they are in a position to assist, maybe they should have acted BEFORE the raping of women and children, pillaging, cover-ups, corruption, robbing and murders.

Background

My father, Robert Heard allegedly killed a Detroit Police Office, Stanley Rapaski and Cass Czerwinski. I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski.
Although my in-laws were directly related to the chief of police of Detroit, I never put it together that maybe this was questionable being that my estranged father was serving a life sentence.
I was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses (Kingdom Hall out of Brooklyn, NY) so I was already raised isolated and separate from others. I wrote to music track initially provide by Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus. Lee Marcus brother was a MI police officer. My in-laws relocated for a period in GA.
The police departments spanning from GA were acting under color of law when they willfully executed a false report to secure a warrant. This illegally obtained warrant has been used to take housing and was used as means to hinder employment and take jobs.
MI – Judge Bernard Friedman, ignored severity of obstruction of justice, murders, rapes, corruption. This judge literally blamed actual violent events as if it was just a side effect from a cystectomy and as if it was not even happening. The search warrant says different.
GA – Judge William Duffey, (judges switched after Request for summary judgement entered by plaintiff. Judge ignored clerk’s misconduct.
F.B.I. Local Offices contacted but ignored severity of obstruction of justice, murders, rapes, intimidation, civil rights violated, corruption that has been allowed to continue for decades.
D.O.J. contacted multiple times throughout the entire 2-3 decades of major violations but ignored.
Officials across state lines are supporting this modern day enslavement by willfully and deliberately ignoring multiple severe criminal acts and have committed acts themselves.
My mother raised us as Jehovah’s Witnesses (located out of Brooklyn, NY).
My father, Robert Heard was sentence to a Life sentence for allegedly killing a police officer.
My best friend’s father was a police officer by the name.
My then husband was related to then Chief of Police, Benny Napoleon.
I’m sure that these officials have presented all kinds of reasons to justify violations but never once has anyone even approached me or said anything and when I approached any of these agencies (including, the DOJ who represents the government) or any police agencies (FBI, etc.)…no one acknowledges valid claims.
Due to major officials (judges, police entities, etc…) and other parties involvement…civil rights violations, use of violence and repeated instances where obstruction of justice, the statute of limitations are not applicable are being ignored and implemented in an attempt to cover atrocities for decades.
I am not sure if you can help because my allegations are against major entities. I am going to the F.B.I. tomorrow but I thought that I would reach out once more for some kind of legal advice.
Due to major officials (judges, police entities, etc…) and other parties involvement…civil rights violations, use of violence and repeated instances where obstruction of justice, the statute of limitations are not applicable are being ignored and implemented in an attempt to cover atrocities for decades.
This case involves multiple major entities and some ‘acting under color of law.’
For decades and repeatedly, I have been placed in situations where it is implied that this heinous situation will be addressed but it never comes. Only continued mail tampering, email interruption, misrepresentation and blocks that are keeping me subjected, alienated and uninformed, these crimes and violations of my privacy continues.
I still have not heard from the human rights committee… not even a confirmation email.
I NEVER GAVE PERMISSION FOR THIS BECAUSE I WAS
NEVER ASKED! 
As
a teenager, I began a telephone relationship with Jay Sloane, a DJ at a local
radio station.
I
signed a recording deal with a Sanchez as a part of a female group (never
developed into anything).
As
a young adult (prior to marriage), I also had unpleasant, embarrassing sexual
contact with the guys who were with the female rapper, Roxanne/Roxanne or was
it The Real Roxanne out of NY.
Initially,
these were the only times where I had any contact with music industry personnel
prior to meeting with Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus.
I
wrote my first lyrics to tracks provided by them of which one was placed on
major television sitcom. Lee Marcus family was definitely associated with the
Detroit Police through his brother per him. Neither; Lee Marcus or Jake Salazar
offered any contract but just wanted lyrics written to music tracks.
Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus never offered contract and disappeared for some time.
This event was followed by the droves of local production teams coming under the
pretense of good will while working together to deceive – as mentioned in Music
Business: It’s a Dirty Game!
Out of the many groups that I worked with, the Larry Hatcher, Larry ‘Roc’ Campbell
issue developed being that I was not signed to either. Larry Hatcher was
introduced through my husband’s family. I would have to assume that he was
initially associated with them but why would he want me to leave Detroit and
move to California unless he was trying to switch teams for whatever reasons.
That was a desperate move to lift my legs up and do me that way but combined
with my family’s response… it worked because I was tore up and almost went.
Local entities began to speak negative about Larry Hatcher being no good and dangerous.
On January 31, 1995, I was home in my kitchen cooking dinner and there was a knock
at the door. The officer held up a search warrant in connection to a double
homicide.
There was a double homicide at 15721 Telegraph on January 21, 1995. Left at the Scene
was a white canvas bag containing one full metal jacketed 9mm round. This round
watched 4 shell casings found by the bodies of the deceased. Attached to the
canvas bag was a TWA baggage tag for flight 355 Nov.11, 1994 and a Computer
read out for passenger T. Lovelace.
Per search, warrant served on January 31, 1995 – Affiant contacted Trans World
Airlines and learned that a Tiwanda Lovelace and a Curtis Lovelace had departed
Kennedy Airport in New York on flight 355 and arrived At Metro Airport Detroit
on November 11, 1994. Apparently, some jackass took my luggage tag from my trip
to NY and left it at the crime scene.
While in New York in November 1994, my home was shot up with my children inside.
Notice of Betrayal Letter sent to Zomba/Jive regarding dated February 23, 1995 Letter I sent to Zomba regarding blatant betrayal from their staff after Kymberlee Thornton expressed sudden disapproval of works which was in
opposition to previous expressed satisfaction.
The Search Warrant advised that I had been under surveillance. I was released immediately.
I’ve had files removed and received threats since 03/95.
Shortly afterward, I kept hearing about a story of someone hurting people by burning their toes, so I don’t know if they are threatening me again or what. I was being blamed again for some actions of others. If I am kept in the dark, how am I supposed to know what is going on. Unfortunately, I have to wait till the public lashes out at me in secret and then try to determine if they are just painting a picture to intimidate. 
‘I heard the people on the radio talking about the toes and I lashed out in anger
at them threatening me or trying to instill me with fear. All I know is that I
hated listening to the radio – assholes.’ ‘They use their powers for bad.
August 1995 Journal entry:
‘Leap of faith, leap on these with that bullshit! So I guess this means that I am
still wounded pretty badly.’
While situations are presented to some of the public one way, while at every turn behind the scenes is the constant harassment, intimidations and threats. It is true that one must be able to overcome and handle duress in order to become successful but when your stress becomes supernatural and your hardships are deliberately unbearable.
Then they were still playing that game where they would pretend to be getting ready to
fix this mess and give me my rights to privacy along with the Dangling Carrot –
The Deal. Followed by releasing the public on me to mock and attack. In
addition to everything that was going on…
October 24,
1995 Envelope from Zomba:
The envelopes with the words ‘comics’ began…
Another example of how haters can misrepresent situations…
Amidst all the drama, on August 15, 1996 my oldest child was outside playing outside
in front of the house when one of my hate-filled neighbor’s children chased him
into the street.
Conveniently, he was struck by a vehicle and thrown into the air to land on the concrete.
What made this different from any accidental automobile collision was the
drivers’ response. Sharon Deasfernandez, the driver got out of her car with
this cold, angry expression on her face.
I’m not a racist but Detroit is predominantly African American city so I thought it was odd that she was of Hispanic decent being that I never really knew that I had crossed paths with anyone except Jake Salazar.
Was there an issue behind the scenes between Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus that was escalating?
Had my signing with Zomba interfered with others plans? Why pretend not to have my
lyrics and melodies after we discussed each work?
Was the double homicide supposed to be used to send me away while the others profited?
I had heard that their intentions were to avenge or retaliate against me for allegedly lying on Powell and others, (one of their big figures in their community in Detroit).
I assure you that I kept written records, time stamped journals and signed paperwork regarding what happened to me. Simply having more family, friends and supporters does not make your or your people’s actions justifiable.
[6] Jake Salazar was a co-founder of the Tempo Music Group. A coalition of independent record companies owned by veteran industry professionals and celebrities such as Anita Baker/Michael Powell, Sylvia Moy, Martha
Reeves, Isaiah Thomas, Thomas Hearns, John Salley, Lee Marcus, and Leonard Jones among
other prominent business colleagues.
Jake has been a consultant to over forty record labels and for many of the industries’ major artists and manages the careers of a chosen few. Jake has been a consultant to over forty record labels and for many of the industries’
major artists and manages the careers of a chosen few.
Hip-Hop/Rap artist Baby Blue, A.K.A. Big Nic on Big Money Records produced by Jake’s son, Jake
“Chacho” Salazar, III. All distributed through an arrangement with Universal. 
 
Prior administrative obligations were for Grammy Winner Little Joe/Polygram Records, Grammy Winner Cesar Rosas/Los Lobos/Warner Bros. Records, Platinum artist Tierra/MCA Records and DeLeon Music Publishing/Peer Publishing.

The Zomba Group of Companies (sometimes referred to as Zomba Music Group or just Zomba Group)[3] was a music group and division which was owned by and operated under Sony Music Entertainment. The division was renamed to Jive Label Group in 2009[4] and was placed under the RCA/Jive Label Group umbrella. In 2011, the RCA/Jive Label Group was split in half. Multiple Jive Label Group artists were moved to Epic Records while others stayed with Jive as it moved under the RCA Music Group. In October 2011 Jive Records was shut down and their artists were moved to RCA Records.[5]
Founded independently in the mid-seventies by Clive Calder and Ralph Simon, the group has had interests in music release, distribution, production, publishing, equipment rental, recording studios, and artist management. Though the financial structure and annual revenue of Zomba during the company’s independent period was probably only known to CEO Clive Calder (the company was registered privately offshore in the Dutch Antilles[1]), Zomba was widely regarded as the most successful of the independent music companies.
The group is probably best known for its role in developing some of the most popular forms of music, such as hip-hop in the 1980s, and the teen pop/boy band phenomenon in the late 1990s through their first record label Jive, though they have also had substantial activities in both the Christian and gospel music field. Calder and Simon both served as CEOs until 1990 when Calder bought out Simon’s share and ran the company himself until 2002. In 2002, BMG purchased the company and subsequently restructured the labels under the umbrella company Zomba Label Group, which was the most public face of the company. The label group served as a parent for many different labels including Jive, SilvertoneVolcano and LaFace.

History[edit]

South African Roots: Calder, Simon and Lange[edit]

In late 1971, Clive Calder and Ralph Simon began their two-decade partnership in forming businesses in record production and promotion, music publishing, artist management and concert promotion in South Africa.[1] Because of the market in South Africa, there was a need to branch out into various aspects of the business, instead of just focusing on one aspect of the industry. “You couldn’t do just one thing. It was too small,” explained David Gresham, CEO of David Gresham Record Company. “This is not a country where you have a million-seller. A No. 1 record is a 10,000 unit seller. That only pays the rent for a month or two.”[6] While almost mandatory in South Africa, this early style of music company would be adapted to other markets throughout the companies history, and would become a staple of Calder’s managing legacy.

Early companies formed by Calder and Simon were Sagittarius Management and Clive Calder Productions (CCP).[1] CCP was distributed by EMI Records South Africa who purchased the company in 1972. Although Calder has no stake in it now, it still exists as a wholly owned subsidiary of EMI, specializing in the recording, development and marketing of domestic artists. Calder’s relationship with EMI began when he had been an A&R Manager at EMI South Africa for eighteen months. There he had signed some big groups for the time such as Freedom’s Children and the Otis Waygood Blues Band.[6] During this time, Calder was also a bassist in a few bands. He formed the Four Dukes and the In Crowd with EMI artist Peter Vee, whom he also produced. Calder eventually paired Lee with a young producer named Mutt Lange, who began producing songs for Calder at CCP, including the local hit “Sunday Monday Tuesday” by Jessica Jones.[1]

Zomba in London[edit]

The trio of Calder, Simon and Lange decided in 1974 that they had to get out of South Africa. “We were politically very much opposed to the old apartheid regime” says Simon. They pooled together what little money they had and moved to London.[7] Having landed right in the middle of the British punk rock movement, they felt their experience would not be best utilized in marketing and promotion in such a different context. Instead, they opted to create a publishing company and Zomba Corporation was officially registered in Switzerland in 1975, operating out of Calder’s bedroom space in London.[1][2] The name “Zomba” referred to the capital of African country Malawi (Lilongwe superseded Zomba as Malawi’s capital in 1974).[8]

Next, Calder and Simon began looking for songwriters. The first was Henri Belolo, the French producer who helped create the Village People. Zomba became the disco group’s British publisher. Though the band had been turned down by a few UK labels, Calder and Simon thought they could retain the most control of Zomba if they stayed in the publishing and management business, allowing other labels to release their artists’ music.[7] Meanwhile, Lange was building a name for himself as a producer, with albums by theBoomtown Rats, Graham Parker and eventually AC/DC’s 1979 Highway to Hell, his breakthrough album.[9] This led to Lange becoming one of the world’s leading hard-rock producers, later adding Def Leppard, Foreigner and Bryan Adams to his resume. For Zomba, this meant increased exposure and credibility leading to many new producer and songwriter management deals. Additionally, artists would sign publishing deals, giving their publishing company a constantly burgeoning collection.[7]

In early 1978, Zomba opened offices in New York City and began looking for more artists and songwriters.[10] Clive Davis was one of the first to contact the group, who used his recently formed Arista Records to distribute Zomba artists. The first major signing was Billy Ocean.[7] Over the next few years, Zomba’s songwriters hit it big and the publishing profits kicked in, marking the beginning of the company’s first major expansion into record labels. Though Davis wanted Calder to head his West Coast A&R operations, Calder had a different plans altogether, and instead presented Jive Records to Davis.

Jive: taking a chance with rap[edit]

Arista had been having trouble pushing rock acts in the US, and Clive Davis had hoped that with Zomba’s Mutt Lange connection, Jive would fill that role. However, Calder had other ideas. In 1981, Jive began operations by releasing British dance and pop music such as Q-Feel, A Flock of Seagulls and Tight Fit. By 1982, Calder was introduced to a young fresh college graduate named Barry Weiss who, for his job interview with Zomba, took Calder out to hip-hop and black clubs all over New York City. Calder was immediately impressed with the man and had him scanning sales data all over the country searching for unknown acts on small labels selling large numbers. Calder got one of his songwriters Thomas Dolby to create a catchy hook for a local DJ Mr. Magic to rap over. Mr. Magic had to cancel at the last minute, but fortunately he knew another rapper, Jalil Hutchins. Weiss’s stress level shot up when Hutchins came to the session with another unknown rapper named Ecstasy and no rhymes. After two days, the group created and recorded “Magic’s Wand” which turned into a hit single. Weiss named the group Houdini, but Calder changed it to Whodini. Calder flew the group to London to record an album, then to Germany to record with producer Konrad “Conny” Plank of Devo and Ultravox fame. While the group would eventually leave Jive after a few albums, the early success resulted in Jive becoming a label with a focus on hip-hop artists throughout eighties. At a time when the record establishment wouldn’t touch “ghetto” music like rap, a white South African successfully marketed some of the edgiest black music.[9]

After Whodini, Jive began signing other rap artists into the later half of the decade. Boogie Down Productions was signed on the strength of their first record Criminal Minded, and their Jive debut By All Means Necessary was released in 1988.[11] Young West Coast rapper Too Short was picked up by Jive after his independently released Born to Mack sold over 50,000 copies. Jive gave the album national distribution which led to gold status, and then quickly issued his follow up Life Is…Too Short which achieved platinum status.[12]Meanwhile, Jive signed DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince in 1986 and released their debut Rock the House. The duo was a great success for Jive, helping make rap more accessible.

Jive continued supporting rap artists into the nineties. Most of the aforementioned groups continued on Jive into the next decade. KRS-One, the primary force behind Boogie Down Productions, released a string solo albums with Jive beginning with Return of the Boom Bap in 1993.[13] In 1991, Jive signed R&B artist R. Kelly who, along with his backing band Public Announcement, released their debut Born into the 90’s in early 1992. R. Kelly’s began his solo career with 12 Play in 1993 and continues to release with Jive today.[14] A Tribe Called Quest was signed by Jive in 1989 following a successful independently released single “Description of a Fool.” Their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm was released by Jive in 1990 and framed the group as one of the most intelligent rap groups.[15] Many other rap and R&B artists were signed throughout the eighties and nineties before the teen-pop explosion in the later half of the decade.

Expansion[edit]

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]

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. In 1988, Andrew Lauder formed the UK-based Silvertone Records under the Zomba Group. While Jive focused on hip hop, Silvertone focused on more rock-oriented music. The label’s roster was initially bolstered by The Stone Roses, but quickly expanded to include blues, acoustic, and roots music.

[1] Other artists featured early on Silvertone include John Lee Hooker, J.J. Cale and The Men They Couldn’t Hang. This period also saw one of the few times that Zomba attempted cracking the classical music market. In 1992, Zomba purchased UK classical music group Conifer Classics with the aide of the group’s head Alison Wenham. Though the deal seemed to be solid, Zomba sold the company to BMG in 1995.[1] Classical music activities have remained minimal[clarification needed] within the company since then. Building on existing publishing deals, Zomba briefly co-owned the UK label Sanctuary Records. While the co-ownership only lasted between 1989 and 1991, the two companies continued dealing together in other avenues, including a publishing deal with Sanctuary artists Iron Maiden.[1] In 1998, Zomba purchased a 50% stake in the troubled label Volcano Entertainment (called Freeworld at the time). The label had been under financial pressure due to various reasons, including a lawsuit from flagship artist Tool. The purchase was shared with management firm Q-Prime, though shortly after they sold their half to Zomba, making Volcano a wholly owned subsidiary. The first action was to settle the lawsuit with Tool, who would go on to become another Zomba success throughout the 2000s, representing the broad stylistic reach of artists under the Zomba Group.In 1993, Zomba created Zomba! Music Services in order to facilitate publishing rights for those in the film and television industry.[8] The division would act as a channel through which clients could acquire products and services from any company within Zomba. Songs published by Zomba Music Publishers Ltd., or released on any of the Zomba labels, or specialty recordings owned by the division itself, could be sourced for inclusion on film soundtracks, television shows or commercials.[1][17] This move gave Zomba profits by providing an accessible method of accessing the company’s vast publishing catalogue.The year 1994 saw the first of many of Zomba’s successful forays into the Christian music scene with the purchase of the Brentwood Music Group.[1][18] Brentwood was an established company consisting of an extensive Christian distribution network, several labels, and one of the largest music publishing divisions in printed choral music in the U.S.[19] Expanding on the Brentwood purchase, Zomba purchased the Christian label group Reunion Records from BMG in October 1996.[1][20] In 1997, Zomba purchased yet another Christian music affiliated company, the Benson Music Group, from Music Entertainment Group.[21][22] Benson became Zomba’s third label to focus on Christian music following Brentwood Music and Reunion Records. An important asset of the Brentwood acquisition was the publishing arm, originally founded in 1902, that included 46,000 copyrights from artists such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Willie Nelson.

In reaction to the surge in Christian-oriented labels gathered over so few years, Zomba created the Provident Music Group in June 1997.

 

The Nashville-based group was led by Jim Van Hook and was essentially a continuation of the Brentwood group and an amalgamation of the other Christian-oriented labels. The group consisted of the Benson, Brentwood and Reunion groups, as well as the Brentwood/Benson Publishing Group and newly formed Provident Music Distribution arms.[23] This new group allowed the three main sublabels to have unified resources and distribution while still retaining their unique personalities in the market.In 1996, Zomba acquired the Windsong Holdings which gave them control of many new companies including Windsong International, Pinnacle Entertainment and Music For Nations.[24] It also gave them control of the established music company Rough Trade (80% of Rough Trade Records Germany/Switzerland/Austria (GSA) and 100% of Rough Trade Benelux). Rough Trade was primarily known as a distributor, but it also ran many electronic labels based in Germany. In July 1999, Rough Trade GSA was renamedZomba Records GmbH, while the Benelux operation (which only had distribution at the time) was absorbed into Zomba Distribution. The Rough Trade name remained as an imprint of Zomba Records GmbH, but was largely abandoned by Zomba.With the successful integration of Rough Trade into its operations in the GSA region and Benelux and to expand on recent teen pop successes, Zomba created a London-based international label group, Zomba International Records Group.[25] Directed by Stuart Watson, the new organization allowed each new local territory to freely sign and develop acts on its own.[26] If those artists could create a strong regional profile, it would be possible to “export” them to Zomba International for broader exposure.[27][28] Simultaneously, it allowed Zomba artists increased international exposure. The expansion was largely unhampered, save for some legal issues with the Australian branch. Australian record company Festival Mushroom Group lost at least a dozen employees to Zomba in early 1999, and placed an injunction that stopped them from soliciting Mushroom employees, and accused former employee Scott Murphy of trying to bolster Zomba’s presence while still working for Mushroom.[29] However, the issue was resolved fairly amicably and ended with a distribution deal with BFM Distribution (a joint venture of Festival Mushroom Group and BMG).[30]

As the record industry began evolving due to the widespread use of the Internet, and the increasing ease with which artists can record at home, Zomba made moves that illustrated their desire to change with the times. In 2000, they joined the growing list of record companies that made some music available via digital download with online distribution company Amplified Entertainment.[31]

 
In 2002, Zomba joined majors EMI, Universal and BMG, with approving some of their Jive catalog for release on the new DataPlay media. Though the media was largely unsuccessful, the move illustrated Zomba’s competitiveness with the major labels in the growing digital world.[32] However, a negative outcome of the changing times was the closing of some of Zomba’s Battery Studios and Dreamline equipment rental businesses towards the end of 2001.[33]
Teen Pop explosion[edit]
Around 1993, Clive Calder began his uneasy relationship with Lou Pearlman. Pearlman had put together a new group, Backstreet Boys, which was languishing on Mercurywithout any hits.
 
He presented the group to Calder along with David McPherson. Though initially uninterested due to the dominance of grunge and alternative rock, Calder thought that the group could help expand his operations overseas.[7] Zomba bought out the boys contract for $35,000 and moved the group over to Zomba imprint Jive

Calder immediately sent the group to Sweden and matched them with a group of producers recently found by Zomba scouts: Dag Volle and Martin Sandberg. In mid-1995, the band recorded their three songs including their first single at Cheiron Studios in Stockholm. Next Calder matched them with an old friend, Stuart Watson, who ran SWAT Enterprises, a company specializing in promotion in Asia. The group went to Asia began touring relentlessly and released their first album which sold one million copies in three weeks. In 1997, when Calder thought the grunge phenomenon had sufficiently passed, he took the group back over to the United States where their North American debut ended up selling upwards of 14 million copies, creating the first in a run of many hits that Zomba and the Backstreet Boys would enjoy together.[7]While Pearlman and Watson were breaking the Backstreet Boys overseas, Jive A&R man Steve Lunt was busy in the US seeking a female star, and was greeted with fifteen-year old Britney Spears. Initially horrified by Spears karaoke demo of a Toni Braxton song sung in the wrong register, Lunt was intrigued by a brief moment at the end where he heard the “kind of soul she had.”[7] As was the virtually the standard at Zomba, Lunt took Spears to in-house songwriter and producer Eric Foster White in the company’s publishing division, and the two recorded “You Got It All.” Like the Backstreet Boys, Spears was hooked up with Cheiron producer Max Martin. Within thirty days of letting a music director atStar 100.7 in San Diego hear “…Baby One More Time,” the song was number one on the charts.In 1999 Zomba was involved in a “boy band controversy” when trying to sign another group that Pearlman had put together himself, *NSYNC.[34] *NSYNC had recently left RCA due to allegations that Pearlman had taken approximately 50% of their profits and not the one-sixth that he had agreed to.[35] Seeing the group as a “free-agent,” Jive quickly signed them and prepared to release their next album. On 12 October, Pearlman’s company Trans Continental, in conjunction with RCA owner BMG Entertainment and BMG Ariola Munich sued Jive Records, Clive Calder, and the members of *NSYNC for $150 million citing, among other things, breach of contract.[36] Pearlman sought an injunction against the release of the band’s new album and that the recordings be given to him, but it was denied in court.[35] As a response to the suit, and in reference to treatment by Trans Continental, *NSYNC released a statement citing the company’s poor conduct as “the most glaring, overt, and callous example of artist exploitation that the music industry has seen in a long time.”[37] The lawsuit was settled on 23 December with undisclosed terms, but left Jive free to release future *NSYNC albums.[38][39]

The lawsuit, which Rolling Stone called “the music industry’s nastiest legal skirmishes in years,” was problematic for Zomba for two main reasons.[39] First, having heard that ‘N Sync was signed to Jive, the Backstreet Boys did not want to be a part of the label anymore. Second, the lawsuit temporarily strained Zomba’s relationship with BMG, whose distribution deal with Zomba was coming to a close. Jive initially announced that they would not renew their deal with BMG, but reconsidered following the lawsuit with BMG and Trans Continental. The distribution deal may have been a determining factor in the outcome of the lawsuit, since distributed Zomba product accounted for 5.5% of BMG’s US market share, and company CEO Strauss Zelnick was under pressure not to lose that.[38] They also signed a new deal with the Backstreet Boys that gave the band a 20% royalty rate.[40]

From BMG to Sony, and recent activities[edit]

BMG had owned 25% of Zomba’s publishing business since 1991 and 20% of its recording business since 1996.[41][42] As part of BMG’s 1996 agreement with Zomba, the music giant was required to follow through on a put option and buy the remaining shares it did not already own before 31 December 2002.[43][44] In June 2002, Clive Calder decided to exercise the put option.[45] Effective 26 November 2002, BMG Entertainment concluded its deal with Zomba for the purchase of the company’s entire assets.[46] While Calder had originally requested $3.2 billion for his shares in Zomba, valuation of the label’s assets varied from $1.6 billion to $2.4 billion.[44] Following the purchase negotiations, a price of $2.74 billion was agreed upon, the biggest purchase of an independent at the time. Zomba’s sale had been the latest in a series of independent label sellouts including Island Records and Geffen Records (both sold to Universal for $300 million and $550 million respectively), and Virgin (sold for $950 million to EMI). The $2.74 billion paid for the Zomba Group was more than was paid for the purchase of many others labels including Island, Geffen, Virgin, A&M, Motown, Chrysalis, and Def Jam, combined.

Initially, BMG took its time in integrating Zomba with the rest of its labels, hoping that the former independent would lift BMGs worldwide rank from fifth to fourth-largest record company.[47] Calder resigned his position as CEO immediately after the purchase, but stayed on in an advisory position for about another year.[41] In mid-2003, BMG began its worldwide integration of Zomba cutting hundreds of jobs through the consolidation of regional operations.[48] While many of the key managers stayed, and the large offices in the US and the UK remained operational, all of the other regional offices were assimilated into BMG. In addition to the regional mergers, the Zomba and BMG publishing companies were integrated. The US and UK offices remained as stand-alone units, but many of the back-office functions were consolidated into BMG. The Provident Music Group, Zomba’s foray into the Christian music market, was reassigned as a RCA sub-label.[48] By 2004, the record labels were reorganized under the Zomba Label Group.[49]

In 2004, BMG and Sony Music Entertainment merged to form Sony BMG Music Entertainment taking Zomba with it. Though the merger was plagued with controversy and eventually ended with Sony buying out BMG’s stake in late 2008, Zomba executives continued to expand the company’s operations in various aspects. In 2007, as part of Sony BMG integration and consolidation, RCA Music Group and Zomba Label Group merged their international, sales and field staffs to form the BMG Label Group under Sony BMG.[50] RCA and Zomba kept separate groups under BMG, but this configuration was short-lived due to the dissolution of the Sony BMG merger. Zomba is currently owned wholly by, and operates under Sony.

On 2 November 2004 the American Federation of Musicians announced that it had entered into an agreement with Zomba. Effective 1 January 2005, the labor union covered all artists on any Zomba subsidiary labels (and any future labels) under the Federation’s Sound Recording Labor Agreement.[51] The deal ensured that all artists under the Zomba aegis would receive, for the first time, a full range of benefits and protections, among which are scale payments, industry standard working conditions and pension contributions.

In 2005, Zomba formed Zomba Gospel under the Zomba Label Group in an effort to collate its recently expanding gospel labels. Zomba’s interest in gospel began in the form of a distribution deal with GospoCentric Records (and sublabel B’Rite Music) in October 2001, which Zomba later purchased in 2004.[52][53] Verity Records president Max Siegel was charged with heading the new entity which included Zomba labels Verity and GospoCentric, as well as four artist owned imprints: Quiet Water Entertainment (Donald Lawrence), Fo Yo Soul Entertainment (Kirk Franklin), New Life Records (John P. Kee) and F. Hammond Music (Fred Hammond). Distribution was handled by Provident-Integrity for the Christian Bookselling Association, and through Sony Distribution (formerly Sony BMG) for the mainstream market.[54]

Zomba’s publishing division also continued its expansion. In 2006, Zomba Music Publishing purchased the catalogue of the UK-based Strongsongs Music Publishing from the Telstar Music Group.[55] This large acquisition gave expanded Zomba’s rights to many international hitmakers to include Metallica, Craig David and Dannii Minogue among others. Beginning with the appointment of David Mantel in 2005 as the head of Zomba Music Publishing US operations, the company began to take a different signing approach that focused on unknown or unsigned artists. Mantel’s first signing was T-Pain, whose two singles “I’m Sprung” and “I’m N Luv (Wit a Stripper)” hit number 8 and 5 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100.[56] This type of signing was also used in the records division were artists or producers were given their own imprint. In October 2008, Zomba made an all-inclusive multiyear joint-venture deal with Hitz Committee Entertainment, and imprint in the making for almost 5 years by Jive A&R VP Micky “MeMpHiTz” Wright.[57] Beginning in 2008, Hitz Committee consists of a record label under Sony, music production, music publishing, artist and producer management, and TV and film projects.

Company structure[edit]For a list of all companies associated with Zomba see: List of Zomba Group companiesThe structure of the Zomba Group during the independent era (1975 to 2002) is difficult to pinpoint exactly due to the private nature of Clive Calder’s managing style. During that period, Calder’s private investment group Summer Shore NV controlled the Zomba group.[58][59] The company began as Zomba Management and Publishers as early as 1975. They expanded to the US, first with a publishing sector in 1978, then a records division in 1981 while the management and publishing divisions became separate companies. Also sometime during that period, they started a production division initially called Zomba Productions Ltd., which would become Zomba Recording Corporation. From a legal standpoint, Zomba’s holdings are divided into their music publishing business (Zomba Music Holdings BV) and music recording business (Zomba Record Holdings BV).[59]The former holds only music publishing (i.e., written music) rights, while the latter holds all of the recorded music rights, along with some publishing groups acquired over the years. In addition to those two, there is another holding company called Zomba Entertainment Holdings BV.[60] Below is a breakdown of most of the companies and divisions that have been owned by Zomba. Since the BMG integration in mid-2003, and further integration into Sony Music in early 2009, the exact status of some companies is not known. As much detail has been provided to illustrate the current status of these companies.


Records division[edit]Zomba labels were operated under the Zomba Label Group from approximately 2004 until 2009 (now part of the RCA/Jive Label Group. The Provident Label Groupcontained other labels after its purchase in 1997, but is no longer a part of Zomba. The Windsong purchase gave Zomba control of labels through a variety of company structures including Pinnacle and Rough Trade, however, some of these labels are no longer a part of Zomba. These three groups are organized separately below, followed by a list of inactive or formerly owned labels from various periods.
Zomba’s first, and flagship label is Jive, formed in 1981. Since then, Zomba has acquired and created a variety of labels and label groups that either operate independent from, or under Jive. During its independent period, the various record labels under Zomba all reported directly to a records division.
 

There was no formal public face for the labels until BMG formed Zomba Label Group in 2004. Though the term “Zomba label group” or “Zomba Group records division”[16][61] had been used previously to refer to the various labels owned by the company, it wasn’t until then that an actual company was created to control the labels specifically.[49][62] The Zomba Recording Corporation continues to coordinate production activities on many Zomba subsidiary releases.From 1981 until 1987, Zomba labels were distributed by Arista. Following that, Zomba signed a deal with RCA for distribution that lasted until 1991. The end of the deal coincided with BMG purchasing a large share of RCA and a deal with BMG was signed for distribution. BMG remained the North American distributor for Zomba until after the purchase in 2002, however, other regions had various other distributors over time.[59] EMI became an important distributor for Zomba in Europe via Virgin Records, but distribution details are listed below in the Regional Branches section. Zomba only controls one small vinyl pressing plant, therefore, most of their manufacturing has been outsourced to companies such as Sonopress (BMG affiliated), Sony and Technicolor.[59]In 1996, Zomba acquired 75% of UK distributor and label group Pinnacle, 80% of the Rough Trade label and distribution in the Germany/Switzerland/Austria (GSA) region, and 100% of Rough Trade Benelux. Effective 8 July 1999 Rough Trade Records was renamed Zomba Records GmbH and the Rough Trade sales and distribution arm was renamedZomba Distribution, operating as a division of Zomba Records GmbH.[25][63] As of the BMG purchase, Zomba conducted its own distribution in the UK (with Pinnacle), Germany, Austria and Benelux (all with Zomba Distribution). In those areas, Zomba also distributed for other, smaller independent labels. In France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Sweden, Zomba had its own marketing and sales, however, distribution was handled by EMI (through Virgin in most cases). In Finland and Greece, Zomba material was exclusively licensed to EMI who controlled marketing, sales and distribution. North American distribution has almost exclusively been with BMG. Following the BMG purchase in December 2002 and subsequent integration in June 2003 and the end of contracts with EMI (also in June), all distribution has been handled by the local BMG companies. When BMG merged with Sony, Sony BMG became Zomba’s distributor from 2004 until early 2009. Since then, Zomba products have been distributed by Sony Music since Sony purchased BMG’s interest in their joint-venture.

Zomba Recording Corporation[edit]

Zomba Recording Corporation (previously Zomba Productions Ltd., and sometimes colloquially referred to as Zomba Records[64]) is a music company and division of the Zomba Group. The US affiliate is Zomba Recordings LLC[51] and the UK affiliate is Zomba Records Ltd. The company also runs an investment and financial services company called Zomba Ventures Inc.[65][66]

Primarily a production company, Zomba Recording Corporation coordinates various activities for the recording process including hiring musicians, managing studios, and organizing production, mixing and mastering personnel. Recordings made under the coordination or supervision of this division are usually marked with the phrase “An Original Sound Recording Made by Zomba Recording Corporation (or Zomba Recordings LLC/Zomba Records Limited/Zomba Productions Limited).” While not strictly a record label, Zomba Recording Corporation appears on most of the various sublabels that Zomba owns. Additionally, the minimal manufacturing as well as some distribution that Zomba does on its own is run through this company.

Battery Studios is the name of Zomba Recording Corporation’s chain of multi-room facilities often used in the production of Zomba artists. The main facility, located in New York City, is constantly associated with high profile clients including R. Kelly, ‘N Sync and Britney Spears. The studio features three recording and mixing studios with SSL 9000, SSL 4064 G+ and Euphonix CS3000 consoles and Pro Tools MIXplus systems.[67] Battery Studios was originally opened in London before the New York branch existed, and at one point consisted of six locations in London, four New York locations, two Nashville locations, and one location in Chicago.[68] However, Zomba closed its London branches towards the end of 2001 and the others followed soon after leaving only an unknown number of New York locations.[33] In addition to Battery studios, Zomba Recording Corporation began a relationship with the established Swedish studio Cheiron Studios and its production personnel. The studio had operated since the mid eighties (as SweMix), and from 1996 until its closure in 2000 it shared a joint production and publishing venture with the Zomba Group.[69][70] Apart from the actual studio, the venture included a production team that helped forge the sounds of Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and ‘N Sync.

In addition to recording studios, Zomba Recording Corporation operated Dreamhire Professional audio Rentals. Dreamhire opened in 1984 with operations in London,New York City (1989) and Nashville (1988). The London branch closed in 2001 followed by Nashville in 2003. Dreamhire also included Hilton Sound, a hire operation purchased by Zomba in 1996.[71] Since November 2003 following the BMG purchase, Dreamhire is no longer a part of Zomba and runs independently as Dreamhire LLC from one location in New York City, owned by Chris Dunn, ex-bass guitarist from UK band (City Boy (band)) which recorded 5 albums all produced by Mutt Lange.[72]

Zomba Label Group[edit]

During its existence, the Zomba Label Group featured all of the Zomba-related labels that BMG purchased in 2002. The current Battery Records is unrelated to the previous defunct imprint of the same name. Listed below is the structure of the Zomba Label Group immediately before its rebranding and dissolution in 2009.

Provident Music Group[edit]

Main article: Provident Label Group
The Provident Music Group was created by Zomba in 1997 as an amalgamation of their Christian music activities. Zomba had purchased Brentwood Music Group in February 1994 and founder Jim Van Cook was charged with leading the new music group. The group consisted of three sections: Provident Label GroupProvident-Integrity Distribution and the Brentwood/Benson Publishing Group.
As part of the music group, Zomba amalgamated their Christian labels under the Provident Label Group. The new group initially consisted of Brentwood Records, Benson Records and Reunion Records, though Brentwood was shut down in 2001. Since then, other labels have been added. Under Zomba, the Provident Label Group had this configuration:
After BMG bought Zomba in 2002 and integrated the company in June 2003, the Provident Music Group was moved under the aegis of RCA with the exception of the Publishing division which was moved under BMG Publishing (Provident would later create its own publishing division, Essential Music Publishing, with no connection to Zomba[73]). BMG Publishing was subsequently sold to Universal, along with Brentwood/Benson. In 2008, when Sony bought Bertelsmann’s stake in their joint Sony BMG venture, the rest of Provident became part of Sony Music Nashville.[74][75]

Windsong (Pinnacle, Rough Trade, Music For Nations)[edit]

In 1996, Zomba acquired the holdings of Windsong International. The deal gave the following controlling interests to Zomba:[24]
Rough Trade GSA was renamed Zomba Records GmbH, while the Benelux operation (which only had distribution at the time) was absorbed into Zomba Distribution. The Rough Trade name only remained as an imprint of Zomba Records GmbH. Before being absorbed into BMG’s operations, Zomba Records GmbH consisted of the following regional labels, most of which focused on electronic dance music:[76]
  • Advanced
  • Air
  • Form & Function
  • Our Choice
  • Reihe Ego
  • Rough Trade
  • World Service
Zomba Records GmbH was integrated into BMG’s German operation along with the other regional offices. The Rough Trade name was later reacquired by Geoff Travis andJeanette Lee who eventually continued it independently. When BMG restructured Zomba in 2003, Windsong/Pinnacle was moved under Bertelsmann’s Arvato AG. Through amanagement buyout, Windsong/Pinnacle gained its independence in early 2008, but was forced into administration late in the year due to the economic crisis.

Zomba International Records Group[edit]

Zomba International Records Group managed the various regional branches opened as early as 1997 and as late as 2003. The group served to solidify the operations in these regions, some of which already had small offices with activities from scouting, promoting (such as Sweden), or as much as distribution for smaller labels or operating a few regional record labels (such as Germany). Following the BMG purchase, all of the remaining regional labels (with the exception of the main US and UK offices) and the Zomba International Records Group activities were merged with their respective local BMG offices in mid-2003.

Publishing division[edit]

Zomba Music Publishing Ltd. (sometimes colloquially referred to as Zomba Music or Zomba Music Publishing Group) is the publishing division of the Zomba Group of Companies. Initially known as Zomba Enterprises Inc., the division officially changed names in 1994 and became the Zomba umbrella company for publishing. Since then, Zomba Enterprises is the name used for Zomba’s ASCAP affiliate, while Zomba Music Inc. is the name of the BMI affiliate.[95][96] The holding company that controls most Zomba publishing interests is called Zomba Music Holdings BV. David Mantel has been the president of Zomba Music Publishing since 2005, when he took over for Richard Blackstone. Tim Smith is the GM of the UK affiliate Zomba Music Publishing Ltd.[56] There are various other publishing entities under Zomba, some of which are vast libraries acquired over the years, and some of which are small groups, sometimes representing a single artist. Below is a list of Zomba’s publishing subsidiaries:[65][97]
  • Bluey Tunes Productions Ltd. (England)
  • Brentwood Music Inc.
  • Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing Inc.
  • Bruton Music Ltd.
  • Firstcom Music Inc. (USA)
  • Firstcommusic Inc. (USA)
  • Grantsville Publishing Ltd. (England)
  • Grever International S.A. (Texas)[98]
  • Marlowlynn Ltd. (England)
  • M56 Publishing Ltd. (England)
  • Street Music Ltd. (England)

  • Zomba Music Inc. (New York)
  • Zomba Music Publishers Ltd. (England)
  • Zomba Silver Sands Enterprises Inc. (Texas)
  • Zomba Songs Inc. (New York)
Zomba has limited activity in the classical music publishing sector, however, they are quite active in the pop music publishing and production music. At the time of the BMG purchase, Zomba had pop music publishing operations located in the UK and Benelux, while every other territory was sub-published with BMG. Production music operations were located in the UK and France with smaller operations in Sweden and the Netherlands. In Germany and Austria, Zomba and BMG owned publishing rights through jointly-owned companies. Finally, in Spain and Italy, Zomba compositions were licensed exclusively to BMG.[59]
In mid-2003, BMG integrated Zomba’s publishing to form BMG-Zomba Music Publishers. In 2007, Vivendi purchased the BMG-Zomba publishing company and placed it withinUniversal Music Publishing Group, becoming the worlds largest music publishing business.[99][100]

Management companies[edit]

Zomba’s first enterprise was a management company in London called Zomba Management and Publishers, with Mutt Lange as one of their first clients. His success allowed the company to expand, and eventually the companies split into two entities, creating Zomba Management. Zomba management represents music producers and artists.[62]Zomba Screen Music was formed in 1997 as management company for film composers.[101][102] In May 2001, Zomba created Ingenuity Entertainment a full-service management company for artists, producers, composers and music supervisors in the film and television industries.[8][103] The Los Angeles-based company serviced both new and veteran artists, offering music production and business affairs services. Ingenuity Entertainment combined a recently formed management firm, also called Ingenuity, with Zomba Screen Music.[103]

Film/television services[edit]

Most of Zomba’s activities in the film and television industry are music related. Zomba Screen Music is their full-service management company for film and television composers. In addition to management, Zomba! Music Services was formed in 1989 as a division offering prerecorded music and publishing services for soundtracks, television and commercials.[104] This also had the effect of promoting Zomba music through the television and film industry.[105] In 1995, Zomba purchased the well-established Segue Music Inc., a film and television music editing company providing music supervision, temp tracks, prerecords, playbacks and soundtrack production.[106][107][108] Zomba also had a joint operation with Portman Entertainment called Portman Music, a soundtrack related company Coombe Music International Ltd. as well as a small film production companyZomba Films. In 2005, Zomba began SEE Music, a joint venture with the recently combined BMG/Zomba Publishing and FirstCom Music specifically for motion picture advertising.[109]

Misogyny in Our Courts?

Created & Written By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace 
E.O.A.A. Weekly News Article: Friday, May 1, 2015 Updated and Re-posted March 24, 2016

Misogyny in Our Courts?

The legal system, police and courts refuse to acknowledge any claims in any case spanning years and even recent criminal acts involving police or judicial misconduct…while the public is used to spread rumors to justify modern day enslavement. 

 
The courts ignored actual violence and facts while attributing ‘violence’ to being a product of plaintiffs ovarian cystectomy (female surgery)… 
 
There was individuals who were assaulted, shot, double homicides, etc…but no one addressed or acknowledged each incident.
 
JUDGE BERNARD FRIEDMAN, MICHIGAN COURTS IGNORED VIOLENCE – STATING ‘THE VIOLENCE WAS A PRODUCT OF FEMALE SURGERY…!
 
This is not only a Misogynist comment but clearly not a proper attitude for a representative of Justice.

Tiwanda Lovelace, Pro Se Plaintiff,

Vs. Zomba Music Publishing, INC. and BMI Defendant,

 Case No. – 96-72270 – Hon. Bernard A. Friedman

Filed dated – May 16, 1996THE CORRUPTION, VIOLENCE, INTIMIDATION AND MAIL TAMPERING (WHEN SEEKING ASSISTANCE) CONTINUES TO THIS DAY –

 
See recent proof of mail tampering when seeking assistance: 

http://musicbizadirtygame.blogspot.com/2015/04/undeniably-questionable-mail-tampering.html

 

My father, Robert Heard allegedly killed a Detroit Police Office, Stanley Rapaski and Cass Czerwinski. I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski because whoever is behind this is in position to hide the truth.

If the police and courts blatantly ignore facts regarding corruption, violence, mail-tampering, etc…
After being homeless for more than (2) two  years, I finally found a place but it was short lived because of further abuse.
 
Recently, I had a neighbor that banged on my walls, blasted music and actually threaten me with
bodily harm to the point where the landlord got involved and took it to court. 
 
Even with multiple police reports, the courts or officials refused to ticket him, evict him or addressed any complaints. So after being homeless for two years (sleeping in shelters, relatives and cars) I was forced to listen to loud music base and neighbors beating my walls while the police ignored complaints.
Let me do anything to you for decades and then you can say what you want about it!
How do you combat the law when it refuses to work or acknowledge you because of who you are?
How do you gain support from a public that believes that you are the moving force behind
multiple murders?
 How do you win a public that believes that popularity dictates whether you have the ability to have rights?
How do you combat lies that you are responsible for loss of life when others are murdering and
manipulating while blaming you while you are left in the dark?
 
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR CONTINUED CORRUPTION!
A POOR DEFENSE COMIC STRIP BY NE NE LOVELACE 2
 
Yes, you are damn right! I am putting it all out there because I have been denied and have
received unwarranted public persecution for way too long (decades) to satisfy vengeful and
greedy entities.
Persons in positions are harboring grudges continuously work to rob you of your chances. Those who are privy to information and placed in positions to have an effect on the life of selected individuals could utilize events to their own benefit. Imagine some having access and the skill to impede or thwart their progress with manipulations to hinder support.
The human factor cannot be ignored and unfortunately when given an opportunity to rear its ugly
head, treachery is usually not too far behind. Imagine scorned individuals lurking, sneaking to poison others opportunities.
It is not me that is drudging and dwelling on the following events but it is the constant persecution that I am forced to endure because of the impact of events that have and are happening behind the scenes.
 
It is the will of those in positions that are using every contact, position to induce harm which
can only be attributed to these past events because I have no other associates or family left that can be used to influence harm.
If you don’t feel that any of my allegations are valid then why is it that there is continued
questionable mail tampering decades later when involving exposing these events?
Why are there multiple instances of Courts misconduct; wherein, actual violence and clear
judicial misconduct has been ignored?
Why haven’t any of these officials answered any one of the valid complaints and allegations or
challenged any of these facts?
Why is it so important to control or limit the information provided?
Why hinder contact or interfere with mailed packages?
Who do you know that had an open and shut copyright infringement and breach of contract case but no one would represent?
If there is no truth to these multitude of claims, why not allow recourse or representation so that
these civil rights violations can be addressed?

BREAKING NEWS: Two Decades of Corruption -Exposed!

“The more you stand up for yourself, the more opposition you have to endure. Even with proof of deliberate violations, even without having any personal mental or emotional issues, even though you do not have any substance abuse issues…the system will deliberately oppress and prevent you from maintaining employment and from conducting business when you speak out against the system designed to violate certain individuals that they use to profit and then disguard.

They presenting you in the worst light in order to justify little or no compens n.”

Even with with work experience and many employable skills, I don’t even receive an interview call in over a year.

So I develope products and I have been traveling to promote my books and poetry but when no one supports your efforts this eventually causes homelessness. 

I worked for many years in the music business and they used 40+ songs lyrics and melodies that made them hundreds of millions of dollars but because I am an unaligned African American Woman, this system feels that I am not entitled to having rights so they do not feel that they have to pay. Others don’t like my response to what has been allowed to continue and some do not care because of their own hardships.

I will never give up and I will continue to seek justice no matter what or where, until justice is in hand.

While being victimized, ostracized, isolated and placed under continued pressure to end her own life, she was advised that profits, proceeds and royalties were confiscated and given to the slain officer’s family. If it was not this message, it was other repeated negative comments used to instill some kind of sense ‘hopelessness.’
This local author has released titles which sheds light on corruption and plot for revenge and abuse of power which has been allowed to continue for over two decades!
These titles demonstrate how a corrupt system has deliberately used money, power and positions to create a form of enslavement in order to use positions to circumvent justice and to exact revenge for the death of a slain police officer and/or others negatively impacted.
Each title written provides documentation to substantiate all claims and provides detailed information.

Caught in crossfire between major entities; the system and those who have been negatively impacted – she has been forced to live as a homeless outcast.

She has lived in many cities, moving from town to town looking for a home and a support base but the people in positions have ensured that too many people have been negatively affected across various groups.
These continued incidents are instigated in the hopes that this will ensure that no one will support her in fighting for justice.
Those in positions and/or associated with the music industry have engaged in, encouraged and have allowed violent acts to incur solely due to their pride, greed and hate.  While behind the scenes, the hurting of others continue so that they will hate you too…this is not a game!
The Onlookers do not even care about ‘the why’ but they join in with more abuse; similarly to those angry mobs mentioned in history books. 

There are those who really understand or at least they seemingly recognize my humanity in this injustice but out of sheer self-preservation they steer clear.
It has been implied that if anyone helps me in any way on my quest to free myself from this man-made oppression would end up in a wheelchair or worse. 

It must be true because it has been decades and I am still struggling by myself to obtain some kind of rights to privacy and justice.
Even with the threats of homelessness, imprisonment and being alone in this nightmare, I refuse to just ‘fade to black’ for people who don’t even see me as a human being.
Lovelace states, ‘I am not, nor have I ever been a strung out, drug using prostitute. I am not a hardened criminal.’ 

‘It seems like the only rights that people in power want me to have is the right to remain silent. Every step I take to move forward, I am delayed in some way.’
Even if she were, it would not justify denying me the same civil rights others are privy to.
Our individual freedom should not be left up to a system that allows those with power and positions to profit from the dehumanization of others.
Again, she never had a chance even from childhood. Lovelace adds that her journals mentioned in previous works were partial entries and do not come close to all that has transpired in their efforts to shame and harm.
If you haven’t had an opportunity to read my previous memoir, ‘Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game’ also called, ‘Curse of the Dragon Lady – The Perfect Victim, and Music, Murder and Mayhem – A True Story! 

I strongly encourage you to purchase a copy. Reading each will explain why it was necessary to write this book and what events led up to this decision to bare my pain.
It is her intention to address all those who whisper for her to sue, fight back, and even those who would suggest for me to, ‘just die’. 

‘After working very hard for many years, honing my skills, obtaining information, I am mentally prepared to find my way to freedom in an effort to correct this injustice.’
In earlier attempts to resolve ‘her situation’ with the music industry, she contacted numerous agencies, attorneys and organizations for assistance but she was refused. 

Included in this list below are the tracking numbers for each letter that she sent so they can’t deny receiving request.
Lovelace added, ‘While on my quest in seeking the way to my figurative ‘underground railroad,’ I was able to establish that ‘my entire situation cannot solely be contributed to my dealings with any one individual or any singular specific group but of a combine collaboration of multiple parties.’ 

Each should be held accountable for their actions and their inaction.
My ordeal is not completely due to any single, specific actions or due to my inactivity; however, this was definitely a part of a well-orchestrated plan that was set in motion long before I arrived or was awakened.
I have not been just twiddling my fingers, living in fantasy world over here. It has been one extremely long journey learning about life, love and the pursuit of happiness.
It was very hard accepting that the ones closest to you would be the ones used to do the most willful damage; especially, when you are too busy watching everyone else that you perceive to be the villains.
SUMMARY OF EVENTS:
Although I have compounded legal issues, I have tried to provide brief numbered details of some of what has occurred below.

I am continuing to seek legal assistance and 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).
5.     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.
6.     Zomba representatives then attempted to pressure me to sign management contracts with producers that were on their roster whom I had never met.
7.     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.
8.     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.
9.     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.
10.   After notifying Zomba of this deal, I became subjected to a multitude of      tragedies, threats and intimidation. 
11.  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.
12.  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. 
13. I then attempted to file suit and although the amended complaint that complied with F.C.R. and was filed within courts guidelines. 
14.  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.
15.   During this ordeal, I maintained my copyrights and always required signed documentation with any co-writers. 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.
16. 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.”
                                                             i.      Lovelace, Tiwanda, 1967 – 18 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES,           1 RAP, 2 POEMS
2.                              PAU001721382 / March 4, 1993 “Collection II – Tiwanda.”
                                                           ii.      Lovelace, Ne Ne – 6 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES,
17. 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.

18. 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.
19.  This warrant was signed May 19, 1993 – expired July 31, 1997.
20.  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? 
21.  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.
22. I have proof of misconduct which shows 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…
I have had multiple major companies assist with hindering and circumvent justice…
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. Cleary, each entry is questionable.                      

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

Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace, founder of Seven West Productions has compiled a set of publications which demonstrate firsthand what traps await them by providing detailed information regarding methods and tactics used.

·        There are no other books that will provide extensive knowledge regarding their process.
·        These publications are not easily accessible through mainstream publishers solely due to the information provided within and due to conflicting with the goals of a billion dollar industry.

I have developed a program that offers extreme discounts so that these publications can be distributed and used to generate funds for other organizations while also providing a more uncut direct approach to educating our young adults before they fall victim to the music industry.

Lovelace has created the following publications:




Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!

ISBN 978-0-989622530 Printed (Perfect Bound)
ISBN 978-0-989622592 eBook

ISBN 978-0578119465 eBook


An autobiography of an unknown artist that that was subjected to continued acts of violence and oppression. This title is presented through this artist/writer’s eyes while experiencing multiple tragedies and events. Emotionally charged, this title clearly expresses the pain and anger of being betrayed, sacrificed and scorned. Inside, are the actual documentation and files used to demonstrate some of the tactics used to steal artist lives, deny rights and enslave the artist. This title is compiled using personal journals, public records, contracts, copyrights and other documentation which demonstrates how it is allowed to continue.


Music Murder and Mayhem-A True Story!

ISBN 978-0-9896225-4-7 Printed

ISBN 978-0-989622547eBook


An un-cut non-fiction description of how the music entertainment business murders its artist and writers quietly behind the scenes. People always assume that artist just sign bad deals that allow producers/managers to take everything but this is not always the case.

It is important that people understand the ‘game’ and how it ultimately affects others. The documentation provided along with my personal experiences shared in this book should demonstrate the lengths that those who have abused their positions to strip individuals of their life publicly by using illegal tactics, mass deception and intimidation.

This book describes how those with money, power, and position use mass manipulation to discredit, its use of technology to spy, use of threats and intimidation to isolate.
Like animals circling its prey, victims are surrounded, stalked, studied and set-up. Like lambs led to slaughter, you won’t realize the severity of your situation until you are knee deep in a ‘storm’ of backstabbing friends, oppressing family members, snaking strangers.

COMING SOON!

INVISIBLE: Living without Rights in America – 2013! 

ISBN 978-0-9896225-5-4 eBook

ISBN 978-0-9896225-8-5 Printed


The court system has been placed under the microscope from the view of the everyday citizen to reveal how it really works for the less fortunate. This book will demonstrate how some individuals are deliberately oppressed by those that are in positions to manipulate the courts to ensure injustice continues. Therefore, by limiting assistance and preventing Due Process they enslave individuals by using their money, power and positions to deny rights that should be guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America.

The documentation provided along with my personal experiences shared in this book should demonstrate the lengths that those who have abused their positions to strip me of my life publicly by using illegal tactics, mass deception and intimidation.

**This is one long list that consist of very prominent attorney’s, groups and organizations**
Now, I can understand why it is so important for this information to remain hidden. If this was to be released, it would reflect poorly on each entity. It is probably because these are the same entities that are supposed to uphold and protect the rights of the people.
What kind of message would this send to the people? It would appear that the life of one individual in comparison to the prominent, upscale, influential people is most important.

Although songs listed in the Co-Publishing Agreement…

Below are sample documents used to establish patterns of abuse of power and civil right violations. 

Clearly, the Warrant has an expiration date of July 31, 1997 but this was used to take multiple jobs and even housing for almost (2) two decades.  Although Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation, no efforts were made to contact and/or provide notice.

That warrant says that ‘thorough, diligent search was made to find probationer and whereabouts unknown’ but this is a complete farce because Lovelace was reporting as directed.




Illegally obtained warrant was used to repeatedly take employment & housing in 
Las Vegas, Nevada

Police/Probation states Warrant issued for Failure to report and pay court ordered monies 

Although Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation AS DIRECTED by Courts, there were no efforts were made to contact and/or provide notice. See Below…

In 2005, why did the police agency state that the warrants were valid but unable to execute due to budgetary constraints but when I lived in Georgia 2003/2004 there were no efforts to arrest? 

From my experience I believe the warrant was serving its purpose, to inflict damage, hinder and harm.

Below: Clearly, Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation AS DIRECTED by Courts from December 11, 1992 until August 2, 1993, there were no efforts were made to contact and/or provide notice. (Warrant was issued May 19, 1993.)


Michigan Inter-State Case Report dated 08-2-1993

That warrant says that ‘thorough, diligent search was made to find probationer and whereabouts unknown’ but this is a complete farce.




Although Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation, no efforts were made to contact and/or provide notice. I was still reporting (3) three months, unaware that the warrant was issued on May 19, 1993. I was just told that I no longer was to report to Michigan Probation office. I obtained this letter well after. 

In all that time, I never mention the fact that my father was convicted of murdering a police officer. I didn’t want to think that people would hold that against me or be this sinister. I didn’t want to even go there besides I still had to have hope that the system to work fairly. 

Decades of this vicious game has led to an examination of both the legal system and the Music Business!

During the time period when the illegally obtained warrant was being issued, I was working with music industry people mentioned in…


Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game! –

–         After the initial placements of works that I had given Lee; I can only assume that word got out about lyrics being free game. Of course, at this time I had no knowledge of other works being placed. So I believe that when Zomba referred to having songs that I had written ‘before and after‘ covered in contract, it was very likely that they had knowledge of these works.

I, personally, looked at it as if I were paying my dues and was willing to charge that to the game at that time. Meanwhile, I was unaware that a Georgia warrant was issued on May 19, 1993 for probation violation after I started working with other local music producers.

I think that my decisions definitely interfered with someone’s plans. I can wholeheartedly say that their intentions were bad from start. Then I received the blame for not signing or letting them lock me down when it was apparent that I had no value in their eyes. Well after initial Georgia warrant and case was resolved, I really started to work with other in the music industry.

Misconduct, Violations and Deprivation of Rights Have NO STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS! 

Federal Law 42 USC 1983
The statute (law) under which most civil rights actions are brought is 42 U.S.C. § 1983. 

Read the Law: 42 U.S.C. § 1983
This law applies to situations where a person, who has been given authority by the law, deprives another person in the United States of rights or privileges that the second person has been given by the US Constitution or by federal or state law. 

The person who believes that s/he has been harmed in this way may sue in court. 

This law limits the way in which a person (who believes that s/he has been harmed) can sue a judge who has been acting in his or her official capacity.
Section 1983 can only be used to sue:

  • for intentional violations;
  • regarding federally protected rights; and
  • someone acting as a state or local official.

Pacer Court Case Tracker for Lovelace v. 

Dekalb Central Probation AND Dekalb County Police Dept.

EVERYTHING was processed and the Defendants – Dekalb County Police did not respond in the time allotted by procedure as directed by courts.
Suddenly and without cause the case was reassigned to a different Judge after Plaintiff (Lovelace) filed for Motion to Request Entry of Default – Months later.
Per Pacer (court records): January 30, 2003 – Judge ordered the Clerk’s Office to do their job…
On 01-30-2004, Pacer Court records No. 7 – Order instructs Clerk’s Office to list Dekalb county Police to complaint and to forward Plaintiff USM285 forms for completion. This was in response to Plaintiff’s Motion for Correction and Notice of Error regarding Clerk’s Office excluding defendants, Dekalb County Police Department from the Complaint.
On 02-17-2004, Pacer Court records No. 8 – Plaintiff’s USM285 forms and Summons were completed and returned. Lovelace returned ALL completed forms as directed.
On 03-16-2004, Pacer Court records No. 9 – Summons was issued for Defendants Dekalb County Police. Clear as day, pacer showed that the Clerk’s Office processed Summons for Defendants.
On 03-18-2004, Pacer Court records No. 10 – Request for Waiver of Summons. Request for Waiver of Service due by 04-16-2004
Clearly, they were served.
On 04-23-2004, In accordance with Civil Procedure and due to no Answer by Defendants (Dekalb County Police dept.); Plaintiff (Lovelace) filed Motion for Default and Summary Judgment.
Suddenly, without cause or explanation – I received notice that the Judge was changed from Judge Jack T Camp to Judge William S Duffey.
Clearly, they were served but they were allowed to state that I never served them, defendants blamed one of their staff members and actually plead that ‘it would be unfair.’

Extreme, Unnecessary Opposition :

Extra Clippings and Inserts

“Along the way I was met with extreme opposition and I have faced many obstacles. I wanted to share some of them with those who would like to know the truth behind the lies and tactics.”  – Tiwanda Lovelace
Google Tactics: 
WHAT DON’T THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW?

The other websites had the same upload but they had it posted correctly…
WHY THE GAMES? HIDING WHAT?

Google Tactics

Google Search shows my book for $0.99 but of course this is not correct. Amazon has the correct price $19.99 but Google displayed this search results. Yes, I have asked them to remove listing repeatedly.
Finally, I was able to have Music Business: It’s a
Dirty Game! removed from their Google Books and Google Play websites.

Google Images Search for:  Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!

Now Available at    http://shop.7westpublishing.com/

Google Image’s Search under ‘Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game’ shows images taken from my book and then immediately list this idiot on the commode, counting money…and…a penny listed a little ways down…’I wonder why that is?’

Google Books also displayed various pages from my book out of sequence and out of context for a preview. 
If you see $ 0.99 and then once you select page the price shows $19.99 this could discourage interest. Book was not listed with correct title.

FacebookTactics

I purchased a couple Ads’ from Facebook and this is a copy of the Ads tracking where they stopped all activity at $2.11.

My very first Ad went well; I reached over 44,000 hits per my page manager but someone interfered with 2nd Ad. I wonder why…




I assure you this was never a game but this was a revenge plot from the start! Read Chapters 1-6 of Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game! provided below!

Amazon and eBay, My Rivals?

Why would eBay and Amazon have mysterious seller offer my listing for less than the authorized price? I understand competition but why is there no information on seller?
Notice: Top Rated Plus & Seller: buy (2589127with shooting star) is listed first, and then my listing is below…



This is not my (Seven West Productions) Ad and it should be $19.99.
My (Seven West Productions) listing is second.
Note: Myphoto was used by Seller: buy (2589127 with shooting star).
These are not coincidences…but deliberate! Find out why by reading Chapters 1-6 below!

Amazon/CreatespaceIssue

Meanwhile, I am marketing and promoting this book and sending my customers to Amazon/Createspace but they offer it for less because Amazon was selling same book @ $17.01, not the agreed 19.99 through Createspace.


No Sales? I know people who purchased on Amazon!

This is not my listing above-5new $16.00 –

My previous Correct Seller information with eBay
100% Positive feedback
Amazon is clearly selling at different rate and $0.00 sales have been reported even though I know that friends/associates have purchased.
This is my listing below showing the agreed Createspace /Amazon price of $19.99…which coincidentally is listed on page #144, page 12 under Music.

I spend hours, days and weeks promoting my book; sending my customers to eBay & Amazon links for my $19.99 Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game and find that my efforts are undermined.
I hope that you have enjoyed reading the Chapters 1 – 6 that I have provided for preview.
I am fighting for my life and I shouldn’t have had to compete with Amazon and/or eBay with my own product when using their online service!
I have had three websites but each time I am faced with unexplained changes to my websites or purchase links being forwarded to other non-related sites.
Recently, I have discovered that some of my copies sent as attachments in emails were never received so if you have received a copy then it was through great lengths.
I have put everything into fighting this injustice and I could use some support. It has been a difficult journey but this form of slavery must stop because I am not going to accept this without a fight. There is no valid reason, justification or excuse to deny rights…
This is really a Dirty Game!

Due to that long list that consisted of very prominent music labels, prominent music industry people, prominent  attorney’s, groups and organizations provided in this book who were contacted for assistance, I can understand why it is so important for this information to remain hidden.
Even decades later; once released, it would reflect poorly on each entity and those who are supposed to uphold the law. It is probably because these are the same entities that are supposed to uphold and protect the rights of the people; yet, palms are greased and backs are turned.
Laws and Rights mean nothing if they don’t apply to everyone. What kind of message does this send to the people in 2013? It would appear that the life of one individual in comparison to the prominent, upscale and influential people has no value.  ANYONE can do anything to anyone if they have more friends and wealth.
I hope that this book reaches those who are unaware of the fact that even though the world is changing; it doesn’t change for all. I hope that you will see beyond my immediate anger and sadness reflected in my journals targeted toward my oppressors. The documentation provided along with my personal experiences shared in this book should demonstrate the lengths that those who have abused their positions to strip me of my life publicly by using illegal tactics, mass deception and intimidation. Even though there are incidents that actually obtain media attention, there are numerous unjust events that do not receive acknowledgment.
In my case, there seems to always be something more pressing or someone more important. Let’s not allow others to continue to divert our attention elsewhere when in most cases we can save lives. If you don’t experience racism, then you would never know what it is like or if it still exists for most.
I can’t help but recall a conversation with a young lady who was of another nationality who casually stated that the world is getting better with regards to racism. Of course, I had to acknowledge that it seems like it but it still exists– they are just sneakier with it! It still exists in the places that have the most impact on minorities – The Courts and the workplaces. While this book demonstrated some of the tactics used in my case with Zomba/BMG (now Universal Music Group. I have compiled some of my personal experiences with the court system in other cases in my other book – Invisible: Living in AmericaWithout Rights  – 2013!
Although I have been treated horribly by many, I still treat people with courtesy and decency. I believe that this is where real change can start. Treat people like you want to be treated seems corny but you never know if the person that you choose to mistreat has already been through the ringer. That simple gesture can make your day or it could be the difference between changing that persons view on life. I know that a few kind words from strangers helped restore my faith in the possibility of Justice. I am still and will continue to seek assistance in obtaining justice from a world that does not recognize my humanity.
In addition to everything else and in spite of all my clear proof that everything is not what it seems, I have to fight complete strangers who truly believe that I am some lying, maniac, mastermind responsible for everything bad in their world.
