YOU’VE BEEN WARNED

YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!

Created & Written By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace 

E.O.A.A. Weekly News Article: Friday, May 18, 2015


Many aspiring artist  are still sending in their demos and running to give their musical works away  hoping to make their dreams come true.
Although this may not happen to all who enter but let me be clear…this is what happens the majority of the time.
Basically, if you go near anyone associated with or in the music business…you should know that (without discussing anything with you and without any agreements) these men can tell the other reps that they own you and that they are supposed to get all of your royalties.
All of the fighting and violence that will and does occur behind the scenes is considered your fault; however, you are kept in the dark while others line up to do you harm. Incentives are offered for contributing to your hardships so that the truth ill die with you and the profiting can continue! 
If you are female and (especially, if you’re African American…no one will help you NO ONE).
 

Not the courts, not the system because all of those major entities control the millions of dollars derived from all works AND ‘THEY’ ensure that the violence touches many groups and cultures to prevent assistance and to induce public hatred toward you. 

There is no logical explanation as to how in 2015 men can simply take from women without consent or communication and this be acceptable…

Just like the cavemen, there does not have to be a relationship or communication.

You are blamed for all of the fighting and violence that will and does occur behind the scenes is considered your fault but you are kept in the dark. 

 
The men associated with or in the business (from the bottom to the top) know this so they enjoy robbing, raping and pillaging with impunity so therefore the last thing that they care about you or your well being in any way. The violence is then used to initiate some kind of process that is presented as some kind of protection (without your knowledge or consent). 
 
This alleged protection is only an another means for these entities to further victimize you and for them to profit from your ideas. It’s similar to some kind of Kleptocracy; which means, ‘under the rule of thieves!’
 
They treat the men like women too if they don’t fall in line or go along…

 

When the warring becomes excessive, you won’t be able to earn a living unless it it’s something illegal, disgusting and degrading (which further jeopardizes your well-being). 


You are blamed for all of the fighting and violence that will and does occur behind the scenes is considered your fault but you are kept in the dark.

 


The public works together out of hate or for revenge to justify the inhumanity because of  their losses even though you were the initial, intended victim. 
 
Most will run scared because of those in positions are corruptible or afraid because there are always monsters guarding the hundreds of millions of dollars involved.
 
Your college degree means nothing because they own the judicial system, the streets, your family, etc…Why attempt to blindly conduct business with this business without considering the tactics or methods used and reviewing actual proof? 

 

Most will let you learn on your own but you need to Learn what they don’t want you to know! 
 
Anything that you give to those producers or industry reps is just that…a gift because all of them are desperate and will do anything to get that money – YOUR MONEY! 
 
In the end you will be presented as simply a disgruntled artist when the truth is that nothing was ever discussed with you because the ‘system’ does not recognize the individual (especially, the female).

 

 

 

It doesn’t matter what group it is that you think that you belong to!

You are blamed for all of the fighting and violence that will and does occur behind the scenes is considered your fault but you will be kept in the dark.

 

Of course, in addition to being an unaligned African American female and conveniently the daughter of a man accused of killing a Detroit police officer, the system definitely refused to enforce any laws or stop any of the robbing, raping and pillaging on my behalf. 
 
Although many have protected themselves in every way (contracts, copyrights, legal representation, etc…), many
artist, writers and producers have been denied the opportunity to even pursue
their claims and are forced to fight everyone AND for their rights. 
 
I am not sharing my experience for sympathy but to let those aspiring artist, writers and producers that those rights that you are counting on having enforced are simply nonexistent when dealing with any multi-billion dollar industry known for not paying it’s people and a ‘system’ that allows it to operate with impunity.  
 
I want the rights guaranteed under the Constitution of the United State of America…that is to seek proper resolution without the mail-tampering, intimidation, violence and homelessness forced upon me. 

 

 

You can mess with them if you want to without studying the tactics and methods in any of the titles provided by SEVEN WEST PRODUCTIONS, LLC
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
 
That’s more help then I ever received from anyone…

You are blamed for all of the fighting and violence that will and does occur behind the scenes is considered your fault but you are kept in the dark while everything bad that can happen, does happen!

 WHATEVER HAPPENED TO HUMAN DECENCY?

WHO WOULD YOU TURN TO?

Each of these individuals and members of certain groups have assisted directly or indirectly in the deprivation of rights,through or by either inaction or actions (up to and including acts listed; intimidation, violation of civil rights, corruption, encouraged public persecution, the raping of women and children. Because of their acts, inaction or misrepresentation of events or refusal to follow or uphold the law!

 

The police and officials have not responded to or addressed multiple complaints and allegations from the daughter of slain 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.

 
All violations from and including; civil rights violations, mail tampering, intimidation, rape and murder have been ignored.

**This is one long list that consist of very prominent attorney’s, groups and organizations. **
 
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; yet, they were unwilling to enforce the laws.

Possibly Jay Sloane has some involvement due to past association.

Las Vegas F.B.I., D.O.J., U.S. Postmaster, and more were contacted with supporting documents but ignored the blatant violations of rights.

FACT: Some of these individuals were associated with or represented other groups who attempted to use these atrocities  for their own purposes and/or monetary gain. These groups are known for supporting the degradation of women.

Because these groups could not profit, I have been led to believe that they are threatening all other groups or individuals from assisting.
 

WHY IS IT THAT ALL OF THE MEN INVOLVED ARE ALLOWED TO PROFIT AND LIVE UNSCATHED AFTER THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO WHAT HAS LED TO CONTINUED VIOLATIONS?

Don’t hide behind your money, positions and friends! Be the men that you were when you made the decisions to place blame, steal, ignore, etc…

Why hide? Go ahead and let everyone see you help hold down individuals while you and the public screws them out of their dignity, rob them of their rights, etc… I would like to hear what reasons it is that you provide your family to explain your actions.

But I have to tell my loved ones to be careful and don’t send that child to public school because ‘my public’ harasses me with homeless jokes, rape jokes, etc…

AM I SUPPOSED TO RUN TO ANY ONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS AFTER THEY HAVE PROFITED FROM THESE ATROCITIES OR WORSE PLACING BLAME FOR THEIR LOSSES?

AM I SUPPOSED TO RUN TO ANY ONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS AFTER THEY HAVE PROFITED FROM THESE ATROCITIES OR WORSE PLACING BLAME FOR THEIR LOSSES?

Help support my Booster Campaign to obtain legal representation @ http://www.booster.com/undercoloroflaw

What if you were posted up, displayed and misrepresented without your knowledge or consent?

How would you react if you lived in a world where ANYONE could do ANYTHING to you for decades and no one would interfere or stop them because the ‘system’ is profiting from stealing your life?

No one has ever said anything to me regarding why I have to be subjected to having no rights to Life, Liberty and Justice!

Well this is being done openly from Michigan to Atlanta and currently here in Las Vegas, NV. Yeah, I can’t wait to hear this…

UNDENIABLY QUESTIONABLE MAIL TAMPERING

E.O.A.A. Weekly News Article: Friday, April 22, 2015

UNDENIABLY QUESTIONABLE MAIL TAMPERING

Most people go about their business and daily grind without any issues, while others are subject to constant questionable violations. Most are able to mail simple packages worry-free and they have faith that their items will reach their destination whole and unhampered.
Well, I have definitely mentioned in previous posting that there have been issues with mail tampering but I guess since some find it easy to challenge the validity of previous claims since they were dated. In my opinion, it has become necessary to once again demonstrate that there are those who are and have been continually abusing their unwarranted access, positions and power to further hinder my efforts to obtain justice and resolution for continued allegations of corruption.
I RECENTLY DECIDED THAT I WILL CONTINUALLY, PERSIST WITH MY EFFORTS TO EXPOSE THE CONTINUED, DELIBERATE VIOLATIONS OF MY CIVIL RIGHTS, COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS, AND MANY OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES, UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR AND MUCH MORE…I mailed very important a total of (4) four packages. (2) two on April 14, 2015 and another (2) two on April 15, 2015… Please review package and  tracking information below for proof of undeniably questionable mail tampering in 2015.
Although I have previously copyrighted materials in the past, I have never sent them REGISTERED and PRIORITY MAIL. REGISTERED MAIL is a service offered by the United States Post Office that is supposed to guarantee security of your package by keeping your package under lock and key during transit. REGISTERED MAIL service also requires a signature of each postal worker that comes in contact with your package during delivery.

PACKAGE 1- U.S.P.S. TRKG #
9114999944313517620195

 I MAILED A COPY OF A COMPLAINT AGAINST A GEORGIA JUDGE – TO THE  JUDICIAL QUALIFICATIONS COMMISSION REGARDING JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT.

Dekalb County Police Department, Defendant
Hon. Judge William Duffey
This complaint alleges judicial misconduct and violations of civil right.

WITHIN 2 DAYS!

PACKAGE 2 – U.S.P.S. TRKG #
9114999944313517620218

 I MAILED A COPY OF A COMPLAINT AGAINST A MICHIGAN JUDGE – TO THE  MICHIGAN JUDICIAL TENURE COMMISSION REGARDING JUDICIAL MISCONDUCT 
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN, SOUTHERN DIVISION – CASE NO. – 96-72270 
Tiwanda Lovelace, Pro Se Plaintiff
Vs.
Zomba Music
Publishing, INC. and BMI, Defendant 
Hon. Judge Bernard Friedman
This complaint alleges judicial misconduct, courts ignoring violence, COURTS CLERKS hindering justice by manipulating, editing and mislabeling filings, violations of civil right failure to uphold the law.
Shipped PRIORITY 3-DAY ON TUESDAY, APRIL 14, 2015 – ORIGINAL EXPECTED DELIVERY WAS APRIL 16, 2015 BUT WAS DELAYED 1 DAY.
AFTER 13 HOURS, THIS PRIORITY MAIL FINALLY LEFT LAS VEGAS, NV. Tracking shows package traveled DIRECT from  LAS VEGAS, NV TO MICHIGAN…

WITHIN 3 DAYS!

ITEM REFLECTS THAT IT WAS DELIVERED AT 9:11 AM (SHADY)

 
HOWEVER, THE NEXT DAY…
PACKAGE 3 U.S.P.S. TRK #RB572662546US  

THIS PACKAGE CONTAINS COPYRIGHTS FOR INVISIBLE: LIVING IN AMERICA WITHOUT RIGHTS! (Perfect bound 290 pages of documented proof). Exposing corruption, civil rights violations, copyright infringements, etc…

PACKAGE U.S.P.S. TRK #RB572662529US


THIS PACKAGE CONTAINS COPYRIGHTS FOR PLATINUM 30/40/50 PROGRAM 
 

(Multiple Comb-bind booklets, Agreements, Comic Strip series which seriously depict the trials and tribulations that victims of this system
allows to transpire.)

This program is meant to encourages educating our future aspiring Artist to learn from my experiences by utilizing my publications which demonstrates tactics and methods used to steal the artist lives. Exposing corruption, civil rights violations, copyright infringements, etc…

 
I sent these (2) TWO other packages,


BOTH; 



PRIORITY 2-DAY REGISTERED MAIL 

IT WAS 30 HOURS BEFORE THIS PRIORITY MAIL EVEN LEFT LAS VEGAS, NV (3 X’S LONGER THAN OTHER) THEN WENT THROUGH JAMAICA, NY IT TOOK (4) FOUR DAYS FOR PRIORITY PLUS REGISTERED MAIL TO GET TO WASHINGTON…

THIS PACKAGE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 2015 AND WHY WOULD IT BE NECESSARY TO RE-ROUTE THROUGH 
JAMAICA, NY…?

I understand that there are no deliveries on Saturday and Sunday, but clearly if it was not rerouted to Jamaica, New York…it would arrived on time FRIDAY, APRIL .17, 2015.
IT TOOK (4) FOUR DAYS TO GET TO WASHINGTON…
PREVIOUS PACKAGES SENT TO MI AND GA, WAS DIRECT
DELIVERY AND A DAY EARLIER.
 
How many other citizens have these mail issues? Convenient delays…but the real question that needs to be asked is, ‘What are the odds of these copyrights and complaints have of being delayed?’ 
 
Why did it take so many hours before leaving Las Vegas, NV?  You cannot block or hinder mail unless you know when it is being sent…
 
What are the odds that those 30 hours were used to manipulate submissions? Why else would these violations be allowed to continue, if not due to corruption and abuse.
 
Again, who do you think would be able to delay mail that is supposed to be under lock and key? 
 
Is it a coincidence that the MAIL that is being sent and most likely ‘gutted’ would expose the most heinous of acts thrust upon individuals forced to live as outcast by those in positions of making a difference while the public scorns.
 
With each attempt to obtain assistance or with each effort, I am faced with additional hardship or pressure to succumb due to lack of support and ostracism. 
 
Each instance of hindering justice, ignoring  and blocking resolution by mail tampering only continues to violate my civil rights. 
 
No one should be refused the same opportunities and rights guaranteed by the constitution to exercise these rights that are denied when mail that is being sent to proper officials. 
 
MY ALLEGATIONS ARE TRUE AND CAN BE SUBSTANTIATED BY THE FULLY COMPLETED, WHOLE DOCUMENTS, PUBLICATIONS, PHOTOS, RECORDINGS, VIDEOS, ETC…EACH, THAT I SUBMIT 
 
BUT IF THESE ITEMS CAN BE DELAYED OR HINDERED THIS CLEARLY WOULD DEMONSTRATE HOW INDIVIDUALS WITH POWER CAN CONTINUE TO ENSLAVE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS FOR DECADES. 
 
I EXPERIENCED SIMILAR TACTICS WHEN ATTEMPTING TO UTILIZE OTHER OUTLETS FOR MY PUBLICATIONS…MY PRODUCT WAS REPEATEDLY MISREPRESENTED. 
 

Further supporting documentation is available in the tabs above this blog!


 

I am well aware of the usual procedures implemented to address these kinds of wrongdoing involving these major entities. However, it has also been my personal experience that those who attempt to pretend to address these concerns usually don’t put the victims best interest first due to monetary gains and social impact on society.  It has been my experience that relying on secret remedies are truly for the benefit of the violators so that they may remain unaffected. My twenty plus years has clearly demonstrated that those in positions of power are he’ll bent on preserving this evil and my public has no interest in allowing proper recourse  (again, due to social impact on society).

All while some misrepresent this situation or those who imply interest in resolution…there are many who are undermining these efforts with indirect actions which encourage further victimization and dehumanization.

To those that would attempt to mislead, judge, rejoice and misdirect….

Why don’t you redirect yourselves to some decency, a conscience and to your humanity!

So while some are using every justification known to mankind…

I am the one that has to listen to the laughter and mocking of my public saying, 10 minutes, $10. So because of this and after decades of being unable to combat lies and manipulations…I can assure you that I am no prostitute and your methods and hesitation only ensures continued unwarranted violations of the worse kind.

So I will not be letting go, nor will I remain silent while empowered and misinformed animals continue to run rampant.

Breaking News: The Business of Music: Operating with Impunity?

Harassed and Homeless for Fighting for My Rights…

“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. 

Their Lies and hate, prevent you from conducting business when you speak out against the system designed to violate certain individuals. These same individuals that they used to make a profit and then they discard you.

They present you in the worst light in order to justify little or no compensation.”

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

So I developed 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.

The Business of Music: Operating with Impunity?

http://www.mediafire.com/view/mcnkcdmd862jgmj/Antitrust%20Brief%20Proof%20of%20a%20Monopoly%20with%20Cover.pdf

View never seen before documents which demonstrate how the Business of Music Operates with Impunity for decades!

These multiple legal situations also involves: Officials, Major Music Labels, Michigan Courts, Dekalb County Police and Georgia Court’s – violation of Due Process, officials ‘acting under color of law’ to deprive rights and alleges judicial misconduct. 

There were hundreds of millions of dollars in music royalties involved with the multiple allegations of copyright infringements, breach of contract, song placements prior to Zomba contract and deprivation of civil rights that all stemmed from conflict between major entities and opponents. 




Lawsuits were filed in Both – 
Detroit, Michigan AND Dekalb County, Georgia. 

The first lawsuit was filed in Michigan after two lawyers advised me that the Co-Publishing Agreement with Zomba was standard.

After failed attempts at having me sign management contracts with their Producers, I was provided with music tracks and encouraged to build my own team. 

After submitting and discussing 40+ songs, it became clear that there was no intention of honoring that Agreement. I began to realize that Zomba had both – initiated and/or allowed the materials that I had submitted and discussed with their representatives to be used and ‘gutted’ by others. 

Zomba is a music publishing company who works with ALL of the Major Music Labels. 

I began to hear musical works on the radio that were derived from songs that I submitted.

 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.


Zomba is a music publishing company who works with ALL of the Major Music Labels.

I reached out to many for assistance by providing supporting documentation and I requested intervention from the beginning. I have a long list that consist of very prominent attorney’s, governmental groups and organizations that were contacted. Some showed interest but declined assistance, while others pretended that the violent acts did not exist. 

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 filed a lawsuit claiming Antitrust Violations, Breach of Contract and Copyright Infringements. I also requested counsel be assigned due to multiple, coincidental acts of violence surrounding my family.

Although the Amended Complaint was ‘set forth in short, plain statements’ as required by law. Clearly explained Each document listed as Exhibits and filed in accordance with Federal Civil Procedures, the courts ignored the Complaint and the supporting documents. 

The Michigan courts dismissed my case as frivolous preventing me an opportunity to have my case heard. Judge Bernard A. Friedman cited that my complaint was bizarre, irrational and indeed delusional. Judge Friedman continues to state that the complaint is fanciful and delusional. 

I didn’t know that copyrights, phone records and certified mail receipts were miscellaneous papers.

 ‘It is easier to ignore facts and allow corruption to continue by claiming that my complaint was bizarre, irrational and indeed delusional but I didn’t imagine bullet holes, family members assaulted, friend and house shot up, my songs ‘gutted’ and played on the radio…


Both lawsuits  demonstrates questionable, unethical and egregious behavior by some of the courts representatives. This is no coincidence that two courts in different states would ignore actual factual claims against the same person who initially filed complaint against music industry reps. 

Multiple criminal activities and misconduct are used to prevent and hinder justice for decades…from the simple auto accidents to the major lawsuits.

Lovelace vs. Zomba Lawsuit

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. 

Initial Request for D.O.J. Assistance -Zomba

DOJ Ignored Coincidental Violent Acts, Docs and Exhibits

DOJ – Chose to take No Action

Clearly, this is NOT just an issue of Breach of Contract!
DOJ – Chose to take No Action

DOJ Antitrust Division Letter Returning Exhibits

See Below:


This letter is implying that I requested closure but previous letter ignored everything; including multiple violent acts…

DOJ Advised Materials Were Lost


There should have been a record from previous correspondents especially since U.S. Department of Justice – Marshal Division was used to serve Defendants years later.


A Monopoly Exist: Not the Game!

When reviewing and comparing the allegations of copyright infringements, civil rights violations, etc… listed in Lovelace vs. Zomba AND Lovelace vs. Dekalb County Police it is apparent that they work together in a combined effort to monopolize.

I say this because when attempting to seek resolution you are faced with the following:
1.      Being denied representation because of either a ‘conflict of interest’ issue due to the industry being controlled.
2.      The fact that no entertainment attorney wants to slug it out on your behalf for fear of preventing further or future business.
3.       Most attorneys require a very large retainer that the artist usually doesn’t have. The lack of funds is usually because the initial attorney had advised this artist that the contract with low figures were standard in the business encouraging acceptance.
4.      Under false pretense, promises and manipulation, the publishing or record take your materials/works.  The publishing or record company contract will then state that your contract says that we can choose not to pursue your claims.
5.      You are faced with major opposition from multiple sources. I have had multiple major companies violate the Federal Trade Commission Fair Trade Act and Competition Laws. They assisted with hindering my efforts in promoting and marketing my Titles by creating fake sellers, re-routed links to other products, listed titles in the wrong categories and listed incorrect prices. These other companies circumventing justice when I was promoting my books that were exposing the blatant tactics and methods subjected.
I no longer wonder why people would easily associate the word ‘slave’ with the music business and the prison system. The courts only seem to recognize the goals of the major corporations.

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

Clearly, I have been denied my rights and this definitely confirms a Monopoly situation.

I was very emotional at this time and although I lacked the skill of a licensed attorney, my revised complaint complied completely with Fed. Rules of Civil Procedure but the courts responded as if they did not receive this revised copy.

I provided copies of copyrights. I provided proof of certified mailings and other documents to support that I required courts assistance. Although I requested assistance from the DOJ and the courts due to violence. These acts of violence were ignored and these supporting documents were referred to as miscellaneous papers.

On July 22, 1996 the courts dismissed my case as frivolous preventing me an opportunity to have my case heard. Judge Bernard A. Friedman cited that my complaint was bizarre, irrational and indeed delusional. Judge Friedman continues to state that the complaint is fanciful and delusional. I didn’t know that copyrights and certified mail receipts were miscellaneous papers.

The definition of a Monopoly is complete control of the entire supply of goods or of a service in a certain area or market, a large company that has a monopoly, complete ownership or control of something. This sums everything up in a single sentence. 


How else is this allowed to continue with impunity?

It was acceptable to those in positions when the decision was made to try to induce a suicidal response until I chose to fight back. Suddenly, I became the one responsible for the aftermath. 

When I began to describe the entire event from my experience and background as being victimized, suddenly I am supposed to be a snitch but it is supposed to be okay for everyone to try to quietly murder me and I am not supposed to fight back?

It is impossible and let’s not forget that I was there at the initial onset, watching ALL assist in obtaining my materials for the grand finale which was to be – my demise. Some would like for you to believe that this is the work of one person but none of the possible scapegoats had the power to orchestrate all of these coordinated events.

Although I can only guess that some individual representing a specific group may have devised a scheme to use this situation for profit. 

Even if this was the case, the only reason why this would be possible is if both parties involved didn’t recognize me as a person because it is a predominantly male dominated industry. 

There was no acknowledgment or contact with me at all other than abuse.

It is possible that others may have negatively been affected and they may have required representation but instead of addressing me so that I could clarify that there are compounded situations, assisting in clearing up the entire ‘cluster muck.’ 

I say this because after being violated, I had hospital employee’s whisper to each other within earshot, ‘that’s what he’s supposed to do…’ as they looked at me smiling and smirking. They had to be implying that they were representing another party.

There are too many coincidences where some horrible act is attributed to a single individual for this to be random. This is why I really want nothing to do with any one of those producers from my past. 

If my material helps alleviate persecution for anyone by clarifying some information, that is fine but I have received a large amount of retaliation so just knowing that someone allowed my family and I to become subjected as a scapegoat is unacceptable.

Instead of communicating, these individuals decided to launch this campaign to possibly cover for the geniuses who actually may have used their positions to manipulate a payoff. I say this because this may be contributing to the immense pressure for me to ‘let it go,’ or the reasons why it was so important for me to ‘just die’ or the pressure to force an acceptance of a minuscule offer.

I conducted business forthright and with good intentions. I completed split sheets on shared works and I required signed agreements for those who chose to work on projects with me.  

In addition, I was able to secure four or five exclusive writers under my Production Company, Seven West. After providing Zomba with copies of my writer’s contracts, I never heard from these writers again.
I discussed and submitted over 40 forty plus musical lyrics and melodies. I didn’t give permission and I did not sign my works away. I signed one co-publishing agreement for fifty percent – ONLY. 

Still, I was forced to listen to my musical lyrics and melodies on the radio for decades as they reached the top the charts but I received no royalties, only threats. 
With the information provided here and in all three of my titles, there should not be any doubt as to this clearly exposing corruption, conspiracies and the monopolization of an industry. 

What I find to be really deplorable is that in addition to having to fight those is power and positions, there are individuals who will combined their efforts to also apply social pressure to invoke a form of social exile. These people take pleasure in exacting revenge in the name of others that have pointed blame at you for messing up their deal and standing up for your work.  

I write my books so that I can reach both those who are in need of this information and those who are in a position to address the blatant atrocities properly. I also write in order to reach any sensible human beings not taken in by the lies, greed and payoffs, etc… that allow this to continue in the hopes that they will help.

Somewhere there is a Jehovah’s Witness or some other group who will become subjected to the same tactics and methods. 

I want them to be able to make an informed decision to protect themselves against the traps or at least recognize the need to tailor their contract and request a sufficient amount of advance to protect themselves after the games begin because most entertainment attorneys will not risk future business by educating you once you have been selected or branded as ‘the Mark.’

I plan to continue to write my books and blogs until it is clear that this has been a deliberate attempt to induce suicidal actions, to violate my civil and human rights, to subject me to continued persecution in order to cause my surrender or demise. 

With the information provided here and in all three of my titles, there should not be any doubt as to this clearly exposing corruption, conspiracies and the monopolization of an industry. 

Caught in crossfire between major entities; the system and those who have been negatively impacted – I am forced to live as a homeless outcast. In this case, I have 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.

There have been women and children assaulted and violated; yet, NO ONE has made an effort to bring an end to this entire ordeal because each are fighting to justify their own actions. Again, these continued incidents are instigated in the hopes that this will ensure that no one will support your fight for justice.

Those in 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! 

I know too many who have been raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and they are now labeled and receiving SSI-Social Security Benefits or suffering from some sort of depression related to these practices. 

This is their answer after brutalizing human beings…split up their royalties between big-wigs, make promises to their minions, lock the victims up, label them, induce suicide and/or murder. 

I disagree with raising children as victims and not preparing them for the world outside of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

There is no reason why the police departments should be able to use their positions to deliberately profit and cause harm to a relative of someone accused of killing a police officer. There are too many coincidences and events surrounding one individual for EVERYONE to ignore FACTS!

Proof of a Conspiracy

There are too many coincidences and events surrounding one individual for EVERYONE to ignore FACTS! There are too many coincidences where some horrible act is attributed to a single individual for this to be random. The following points clearly demonstrates a combined effort:
1.      In order for BMG, MCA, PolyGram, EMI, the Sony Group or the WEA Group to have multiple blatant similarities to songs listed in copyright infringements this has to be a combined effort and these label reps working together. This was a combined effort to circumvent justice to monopolize.
2.      Mail tampering amongst different carriers was definitely involved and proven with documentation. Two separate carriers admitted in writing referencing being unable to explain mail delivery delays. This was a combined effort to circumvent justice to monopolize.
3.      Not one of these individuals would be able to track and coordinate persecution and harassment. This was a combined effort to circumvent justice to monopolize.
4.      Not one of these individuals would be able to manipulate the violations of my Civil Rights AND orchestrate the questionable behavior from both the States of Georgia and Michigan Court’s. This was a combined effort to circumvent justice to monopolize.
5.      No single person is able to orchestrate the unprovoked modification of criminal background records. Suddenly officials were ready to enforce their duties when choosing to violate the Due Process Clause but unavailable to honor the duties involved in upholding a citizens rights. This was a combined effort to circumvent justice.
There are a lot of artist that befall convenient legal issues prior to releasing projects – (Example: Tupac never had a criminal record prior to his release).
6.      The illegally obtained warrant was issued conveniently during the days when I was suffering through retaliation and my torturous days of being forced to listen to all my ‘gutted’ works on the radio, etc… This required combined effort to induce hopelessness and suicide.
7.      The timing of the execution of this illegally obtained 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.
8.      More importantly, for decades I have been contacting governmental agencies, groups, organizations and attorneys off and on since the beginning.  I was providing supporting documents which substantiate my claims and CLEARLY raise questions regarding these compounded coincidences but I am refused.
9.       The fact that these agency and groups that are neglecting to acknowledge blatant wrongs; they’re inaction whether direct or indirect, inadvertently supports this injustice. Promoting deprivation of rights when an obvious injustice is ignored.

10.  When any other corporation is found to be in violation of someone’s rights or involved in any unethical behavior, they are held liable. How is it that an industry can deprive rights and deny compensation from their employees (artist/producers) without being held accountable for decades? 

What’s Love Got to Do with It?

During this ordeal there have been multiple references to Love or an attempt to play some sort of ‘heartbreak hotel’ game. I know that it is not uncommon for music to remind you of a person; especially, if you wrote lyrics for or with that person. Miraculously, I was supposed to listen to some music and fall in love, allowing some man with whom I have no connection to or any communication with for decades… to take control of my situation?
If someone cared, they should have made it clear but after being violated, harassed and ostracized for decades…it is too late! 
Every time that I think of either of them, I am reminded of how many people have used their names when inflicting harm, mocking and violating. True or not, it is clear that I now associate the violation of women and children with both major entities. 

Playing a song to induce feelings and emotions without an individual having had a previous relationship and expecting results is foolish. That kind of thinking is not realistic and if you believe otherwise than you may want to seek professional help. This was not done out of love and it’s not about one man’s actions, this was a joint effort!
I thought Copyright Laws were supposed to protect writers! I have been copyrighting my lyrics and melodies since 1991. 

Even with Copyrights, proof of submission, phone records proving works were discussed and blatant similarities to works released on major labels – I was denied representation. 

Even with Lawsuit filed in accordance with Federal Rules on Civil procedures, I was not given an opportunity to address my claims in court!

With all that was mentioned, courts ignored actual events of violence, denied that stress can attribute to and cause physical ailments.
So, let me get this right…I imagined my house getting shot up, double homicide, children assaulted and sister getting raped and dropped off at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The Michigan Judge could have assigned counsel or made another decision. Talk about getting assaulted, I felt violated all over again. 

Zomba is a music publishing company who works with ALL of the Major Music Labels.


There are no statutes of limitations on civil rights 

violations; especially, with all of the tactics and 

methods used to circumvent justice. I intend to 

continue to seek counsel and find someone who 

wants to put an end to blatant violations of civil 

rights and make those who cando what they 

are supposed to do.

This is really a Dirty Game!
THESE ARE NO COINCIDENCES!
THEY DON’T WANT ME TO SELL MY BOOKS EXPOSING THESE ATROCITIES BUT THEY DON’T WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE ME
AS A HUMAN BEING.
Each instance listed above and in the Extra Clippings can easily be categorized as violating the Federal Fair Trade Act and Unfair Competition Laws.

In Order for the Music Business and the Court System to continue blatant wrongdoing for decades, It would appear that this ‘System’ profits and Encourages these violations to continue.
People want you to believe that Money, Payoffs, Popularity Contests and Racism Supersedes Having 
Rights Guaranteed by The Constitution of the United States…But I AM NOT LETTING GO!

The definition of a Monopoly is complete control of the entire supply of goods or of a service in a certain area or market, a large company that has a monopoly, complete ownership or control of something. This sums everything up in a single sentence. How else is this allowed to continue with impunity?

Attorney’s knowingly conspire to have you  sign a standard contract for small amount when they know that you will need a large retainer when the deal goes sour. 

Under false pretense, promises and manipulation, the publishing or record take your materials/works.  

Music Publisher manipulates to obtain fresh ideas and woks with the intention of using works said works without honoring the Agreement. They flash a list of Major Labels that they will place your works with but then deny you royalties.

The Courts work against the Artist repeatedly by refusing to even acknowledge your complaints across State lines; which prevents relief that would allow you to secure an appropriate retainer. 

The Artist/writer/small publishing and production companies are unable to operate or conduct business because the industry conspires against them.

In addition, there is coincidental acts of violence, isolation and oppression used to intimidate…preventing proper resolution.

The publishing or record company contract will then state that your contract says that we can choose not to pursue your claims. 

You are faced with major opposition from multiple sources. I have had multiple major companies violate the Federal Trade Commission Fair Trade Act and Competition Laws. 

They assisted with hindering my efforts in promoting and marketing my Titles by creating fake sellers, re-routed links to other products, listed titles in the wrong categories and listed incorrect prices. 

These other companies circumventing justice when I was promoting my books that were exposing the blatant tactics and methods subjected.


15 U.S. Code § 2 – Monopolizing trade a felony; penalty


Every person who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any other person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and, on conviction thereof, shall be punished by fine not exceeding $100,000,000 if a corporation, or, if any other person, $1,000,000, or by imprisonment not exceeding 10 years, or by both said punishments, in the discretion of the court.



Even with all of the documentation 

regarding multiple events of violence, 

court misconduct, mail tampering, etc..

recently I received this notice from the 

D.O.J Antitrust Division….

Dear Ms. Lovelace:
Thank you for contacting the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.  The Citizen Complaint Center has carefully reviewed your complaint and understands your concerns, but we have determined that the information provided does not raise antitrust issues that warrant further review by the Division.  We have your information on file and should the legal staff need further information, they may contact you in the future.  If you have not already done so, you might wish to consult a private attorney. 
You might wish to explore our website which contains a primer on antitrust laws and explains what constitutes an antitrust violation.  http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/http://www.justice.gov/atr/public/div_stats/antitrust-enfor-consumer.pdf;http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/public/guidelines/209114.htm
We appreciate your interest in the enforcement of the federal antitrust laws and we hope you are able to resolve your concerns.
Sincerely,
Citizen Complaint Center
Antitrust Division
Department of Justice




I have read their website information and it says:



The Sherman Act outlaws “every contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade,” and any “monopolization, attempted monopolization, or conspiracy or combination to monopolize.” Long ago, the Supreme Court decided that the Sherman Act does not prohibit every restraint of trade, only those that are unreasonable. For instance, in some sense, an agreement between two individuals to form a partnership restrains trade, but may not do so unreasonably, and thus may be lawful under the antitrust laws. On the other hand, certain acts are considered so harmful to competition that they are almost always illegal. These include plain arrangements among competing individuals or businesses to fix prices, divide markets, or rig bids. These acts are “per se” violations of the Sherman Act; in other words, no defense or justification is allowed.
The penalties for violating the Sherman Act can be severe. Although most enforcement actions are civil, the Sherman Act is also a criminal law, and individuals and businesses that violate it may be prosecuted by the Department of Justice. Criminal prosecutions are typically limited to intentional and clear violations such as when competitors fix prices or rig bids. The Sherman Act imposes criminal penalties of up to $100 million for a corporation and $1 million for an individual, along with up to 10 years in prison. Under federal law, the maximum fine may be increased to twice the amount the conspirators gained from the illegal acts or twice the money lost by the victims of the crime, if either of those amounts is over $100 million.
The Federal Trade Commission Act bans “unfair methods of competition” and “unfair or deceptive acts or practices.” The Supreme Court has said that all violations of the Sherman Act also violate the FTC Act. Thus, although the FTC does not technically enforce the Sherman Act, it can bring cases under the FTC Act against the same kinds of activities that violate the Sherman Act. The FTC Act also reaches other practices that harm competition, but that may not fit neatly into categories of conduct formally prohibited by the Sherman Act. Only the FTC brings cases under the FTC Act.
The Clayton Act addresses specific practices that the Sherman Act does not clearly prohibit, such as mergers and interlocking directorates (that is, the same person making business decisions for competing companies). Section 7 of the Clayton Act prohibits mergers and acquisitions where the effect “may be substantially to lessen competition, or to tend to create a monopoly.” As amended by the Robinson-Patman Act of 1936, the Clayton Act also bans certain discriminatory prices, services, and allowances in dealings between merchants. The Clayton Act was amended again in 1976 by the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act to require companies planning large mergers or acquisitions to notify the government of their plans in advance. The Clayton Act also authorizes private parties to sue for triple damages when they have been harmed by conduct that violates either the Sherman or Clayton Act and to obtain a court order prohibiting the anticompetitive practice in the future.

WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

Seven West Productions By Tiwanda Lovelace

Friday  October 29, 2013 Re-Post

“The point of listing those court cases were not to minimize their pain but to compare their couple of hours of humiliation to a lifetime of despair and deliberate abuse by those in positions of power! 

Yes, EVERYONE says that the Music Business is Dirty but that does not make it alright. 

Everyone has different scenarios where they may have signed with Managers or Production companies. 

However, I signed a Co-Publishing Agreement (ONLY) – for 50/50 split with Zomba/Jive – Now Universal Music Group. I submitted and discussed these works with their representatives but Zomba refused to address allegations of copyright infringements. I had to listen while my melodies and lyrics were being played on the radio for decades.

I never signed any Management contract and I did not sign any co-production contract so there is no excuse for them taking all my musical works and giving no credit and no money! I had legal representation and copyrights but I was not only completely denied but I was threatened and set up. They take your musical works and then Blackball you from getting help when you don’t just bend over.


Why is this okay? Am I Not a Human Being deserving of some kind Justice?”

It’s like coming in on a fight in the last five minutes and claiming you know every blow…

You only know what you have heard and unless you sacrifice your entire life watching nonstop from beginning to end you really don’t know everything that you think you know about someone and their situation. 

Below is a recent message directed towards my ‘situation’:

 The first person – Kishan Bhatt, responded using as an Avatar a picture of a sinister/villain that I previously used on my
“Why don’t you just die blog” (shown at bottom of this blog). 

Really? Did he say, ‘Stab them in the face in front of everyone…?’ 

This is an example of the violence directly towards me and my family, this is what I face from complete strangers but I guess it’s okay because situations have been manipulated by people in positions…

He admits that this was directed towards me but I do not know this person but he refers to me as a liar. He was not there, he has not reviewed my account of what transpired and he has not looked at any of the incidents or events which are covered in 
He has just accepted my public conviction and has found me guilty but he does not know anything about me.
First of all, has anyone stopped to question why there is so much anger and animosity pointed at one person who in all these years has never had an opportunity to address all the accusations? 
While others can get their negative messages out so easily regarding my actions, has anyone wondered why all this opposition to me and my book


Am I expected to carry the weight of all that has transpired without an opportunity to refute or challenge accusations. 

It’s not like I have a choice, If I don’t fight back then I would be forever unable to refute their lies and prove my stance is justified. People have peeked in to see the angry me but they were not there in the beginning while the plotting by each and all was going. 

What would you have done? 
Wouldn’t you have fought for your life?
The first person – Kishan Bhatt, responded using as an Avatar a picture of a sinister/villain that I previously used on my
“Why don’t you just die blog” (shown above).

I don’t have an army. I have learned that not fighting does not help alleviate the backlash and since each job that I secure is taken from me due to this Farce… 

Writing my story – this is the only way to provide for myself  have no other choice but to fight by selling my story and by trying to reach reasonable human beings so that any maniac that wants to hold us responsible for all these tragedies that have been manipulated cannot just reach out and cause more harm. 

When you have been given thousands of enemies by others action, inaction’s, abuse of power and manipulations, you cannot survive without enough to ensure your family’s future.

Although I am in this living nightmare, I still ensure that I find time to relax, I keep my appearance up as my money allows, seek simple enjoyable activities – like movies, shopping, etc… It’s surprising how some people are able to find ways to cope with the worst and still overcome but with time, persistence and perseverance 
your mind finds a way 

(especially, when you feel justified!) 

I don’t always sit around angry and most importantly, I don’t let people treat me bad. I quickly address mistreatment because I don’t mistreat others unless provoked. Yes, I am adamant about defending my family and my actions. 

I am fully aware of how important it is to express my feelings and the importance of perfectly describing the events that I am being subjected to. I cannot afford to get caught up in my emotions and allow trickery to influence my outlook. 

My life is about securing a future that prevents  ever being subjected again to or endangering my family to any and every ass-clown this side of the equator so I will not be 

letting go until it is corrected…


I do not want to hear anymore words and 


am not waiting on liars…



IT’S NOT OKAY!

Stuck in the Middle of a Violent Nightmare that Neither side wants to Resolve!

Don’t Let Their Lies and Deceit Justify their Inaction!


Frantically, trying to figure out why this was happening to me, I compiled what I do know and came up with this:

These are the facts surrounding my life:

1.  Zomba Publishing Contract states before and after works given prior to Hi-Five’s placements. Could they have known of works presented and placed through Lee Marcus/Jake Salazar? ‘Keep Standing Tall’ was used as a theme song on a popular television sitcom.

2.  Police involvement – all my life, Friends and In-Laws
            In-Laws / Detroit’s Chief of Police – Napoleon
            Best friend’s family closely associated w/ Police
            Brother in-law police

3a. Lee Marcus – Family is police

3b. Jake Salazar – Partnered w/ Lee Marcus

3c.  (5) Five works given to Lee/Jake: ‘Keep Standing Tall’, ‘It’s Love/I’m what you need’, ‘where are you now?’, ‘I need you here’, and ‘Just for you.’

4. Police ruled in favor of Sharon Deasfernandez after she hit my son w/ her car while he was in  front of our house playing. She had no remorse as if it was deliberate.

5.  Police never followed up on domestic violence
case against husband.

6.  Father accused of allegedly killing a police officer in 1969.

7. Mother used to cry all the time at night, hated my father, kept secrets, raised to go to school, not allowed her children to participate in after school activities, no outside contact with schoolmates, no phone privileges, only kingdom hall was allowed.

8.  Mother tried to conceal truth by pressuring me, sent letter to governor, she found Dr. to discredit me without enough time to give wide range diagnosis, added emotional stress, courts dismissed son hit by car, sister raped and double homicide.

9.  Family succumb to violent acts, possibly to convince cooperation.

10.  Mail tampering – search warrant advised I was under surveillance – would explain mail tampering.

11.  Court dismissed/ignored request to assign counsel to avoid protraction due to mismanagement.

This was definitely signs that something just was not right and that this was no accident.

I was beginning to believe that I was that girl that was being pressured into committing suicide.

Given the information, at this time, I was still unable to understand which pieces were relevant and which was coincidental.  Of course, I continued onward and so did the messages…

However, now I can access information that has remained hidden…

Mr. Jake Salazar worked as an
entertainment executive, as label manager and various department director to presidents and CEOs of the world’s leading entertainment companies with tenures in affiliate companies such as
Warner Bros, RCA, SONY, Universal, ABC, NBC and CBS Broadcasting.

[1] 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.


As mentioned in 
I met and/or worked with the highlighted names mentioned above and I was 
unaware that these individuals 
worked together.
Jake has been consultant to over forty record
labels and for many of the industries’ major artists and manages the careers of a 
chosen few. 
There they were – 
Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus 
in my living room, personally providing me 
with music tracks for me to write my lyrics 
and melodies, I guess I should have felt honored. 
Jake Salazar, Lee Marcus, Leonard Jones and Michael Powell were all prominent business colleagues and they say that I am the one who is guilty of betrayal.
Obviously, I didn’t just pull names out of a hat, this was no accident, and I can see why these people want me to just die.

What did these maniacs do? 

Read inserts from Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!

There they were, Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus, in my living room, personally providing me with music tracks for me to write my lyrics and melodies, I guess I should have felt honored. Jake Salazar, Lee Marcus, Leonard Jones and Michael Powell were all prominent business colleagues and they say that I am the one who is guilty of betrayal. Obviously, I didn’t just pull names out of a hat, this was no accident, and I can see why these people want me to just die. I guess this is where the harassment from Hispanics could be originating from; they must have had a falling out. What did these maniacs do? Not one of them tried to offer anything, no decency, just treachery and you expected what to happen exactly? I was unaware that they were close prominent business colleagues.
Shortly after meeting Lee, I met Leonard Jones of All Purpose Disc. He was an older man in his late 50’s or older. I accepted a job as his secretary part-time. I actually liked getting dressed and going to work being that I had never worked before. My ex-husband provided for us for the most part, this enabled me to have more time focused on the children and my music. I believe he felt that keeping me close to home would prevent contact with other men.
While working for Jones, I met a lot of people that would come to the office to meet with him. He never came on to me or used his position to try to get some ass like I expected. Instead he seemed to be testing me and checking to see what my deal was. I was also watching, checking to see if he actually had good intentions. Of course, I felt that he might be in a position to help get me to where I wanted to be – Major. As I worked there, I would hear the different artist express their concerns and issues. Mostly, I would try to read all the people that came to his office; including his wife.
His wife hated the sight of me. Jones and I would laugh because we both knew that we weren’t doing anything. If he was cheating, it wasn’t with me. He’d joke and say that she called me ‘that thang’ and I would reply with “that’s Ms. Thang to her.” Although I liked Jones, I didn’t have faith that once I signed he would follow through.
Eventually, some guys came in the office and they were not happy about something to do with money or a project and it was not pretty. That was my queue… I’m talking about Detroitmen, pissed about money; I quit that day but before I left I called myself getting some numbers for distributors and possibly producers. Not unlike anyone else who felt they worked for it. I never saw him again but he wasn’t a bad man but just like others who couldn’t have their way – He probably wasn’t happy with me.
I worked with another talented local music producer named, Darrold Campbell. He was a light-skinned African American. He was quiet for the most part but he spoke when he had something to say. I genuinely wished him well and I liked his music tracks. He was very professional and he should have gotten a deal on his talent alone. He would tell me that I didn’t need help with writing song lyrics. His tracks were highly praised by those in the industry with years of experience. I never hesitated to give his business info to others.
In addition, Darrell Strickland was lyricist/producer (slightly crazy in my opinion from bumping his head for years with that damn dangling carrot). He was between light and medium brown-skinned African American. He was ‘cool people’ but because I felt that he wanted more than music relationship, I left. We had a great time hanging out though. We went to Nova Scotia, Canadaand just kicked it with some other musicians. We all just sat around playing music and showing off our talents – Freestyle. I will always remember that trip. Canadians were very friendly to me and it was nice to get away for a while. I know that he had some crazy ass thuggish brothers.
I worked with Hershel Tinsley and Tim Lempke, they were music producers but I didn’t like the way they wanted me to sing. I tried and it didn’t work out. There was no soul or feeling in the song that I was given and I wasn’t allowed input. 
I also met with some lady who had studio out of home said, ‘writing songs like a relationship’ Ah; no I don’t think so. I don’t remember her name but I didn’t like the vibe I felt. It was if people were saying that I tried to cut others and was completely self serving.
I was working on exposure and decided to agree to a radio commercial for ‘Mind your business campaign’ on radio. This was a campaign designed to encourage support for local businesses. It was really good experience and it felt good to hear my voice on the radio.
I was so excited about music tracks and wanted to write, I began to seek out different production companies to offer my vocals to help sell their songs for studio time and/or tracks to write my songs.
Curtis, my husband, at the time supported my endeavors. He purchased a little 4 track player so that I could put my melodies down with the music. I would spend my nights smoking weed and writing. I became obsessed with music and the more lyrics I wrote, the more I learned about copyrights, legal process, etc…but what I didn’t know is that even if you have copyrights – you are not protected if you cannot get a lawyer to represent you.
My husband and family introduced me to Larry Hatcher (If that was his real name) was involved in music industry and was a writer/lyricist who lived in both cities, Detroit and Los Angeles. He was a friend of the family and I was told that he could possibly help me with my music. He was over 6 feet in height, medium build with medium brown skin African American and seemed upbeat, energetic and interested. He was fun and very likable but never open. At this time in my life, my husband and I had just come clean about our issues and concerns with our relationship. I thought that we had decided to work things out and stay together.
So I went into my dealings with Larry with strictly business mentality. Curtis would drop me off at his house to work on music tracks. I liked him but I was chilling and I made it clear that I wasn’t down for extracurricular activity. Once, Larry and Val were sitting on the couch and he just whipped it out and she started playing with him while they looked at me. I kept writing my lyrics and ignored them. He was the type of man that knew his way around women and how to get what he wanted.
One eventful night he decided to take me to a party at his friend’s house, I went and I was running from him the whole night. He finally brought me a drink, V.S.O.P. and I drank it. Right after the party, instead of him taking me home he went to his house. I was out of it and the next thing I knew he had me up on the table on my back and lifted my dress up and he was inside me. I couldn’t move and I was in shock.
Immediately, I started crying and demanded to go home. I was throwing up all the way home. I can’t remember if he took me or if Curtis came to get me. I continued throwing up and crying all night. I told Curtis, my husband what happened to me and he didn’t even respond. It was like he didn’t care or believe me. I told my mother and I received the same response. I was so hurt that neither of them gave a damn that I said forget them.
Do you know that I hardened myself at that moment and made excuses to justify me going back to who I felt was the only person really in a position to further my career? The sooner the better, than I can get away from them for not caring. I know that he was a friend of their family but I didn’t think that they would just give me away.
So, yes; against my better judgment I went back to him knowing that I had hateful feelings towards him for what he did. I addressed it with him and expressed my anger towards what he did. He apologized and I said I accepted but I still held a grudge at that time. I was furious but I just told myself that he didn’t hurt me. So keeping this in mind, I just couldn’t hold it anymore and when we had that meeting with Renzer – Zomba, rep at Art & Rhythm’s studio with Larry Roc Campbell, I just snapped because I couldn’t bear the thoughts of them cheating me out of my songs and that he did me like that. I went off on him verbally but no one else knew why, just Larry Hatcher and me.
I think back to when I told my girlfriends/sister-in-laws that one of my fantasies was to have my man just take it but we were just talking. Whatever, that was a tragic experience for me. Prior to this happening, I had met his friend Larry Roc Campbell and I was checking him out and I know he didn’t like it but he never said anything.
 What possessed him to do that to me? – To this day I think this was a tactic used to cause imbalance, confusion and dismay.In addition, there were implications that she may have known Larry by her response to our incident.  Looking back I truly believe he feels like I hurt his feelings because he said sorry. I am still negatively affected and way messed up by that move. If he hadn’t he may have had a chance but this drove me to what’s his face…and definitely far away from my ex-husband emotionally.

– Hurt, angry, mad at myself for responding the way I did – My husband and mother failed me, so my dumbass made matters worse with that one.
Larry had introduced me to Larry Roc Campbell, who at that time was a music producer (master manipulator by his own words). Roc was already contracted with Zomba under Ara – Art & Rhythm and worked out of a small studio in Southfield, Michigan. Roc was slightly less than six feet tall, with medium build and medium brown-skinned African American. He would have probably been taller if he not been bow-legged. He also had a cleft or dimple in his chin. He was very sexy in his strong but silent kind of way. Art & Rhythm; which consisted of Ara and Roc, offered a contract but didn’t want to offer any monies. Of course, just like anyone else would have done – I declined due to no money. I tried to talk to him but he just sent me to Ara.
Since I had a husband and mother willing to give me away, I had someone that I thought that I could trust hurt my soul. Roc didn’t think enough to come up with any money for contract, I wasn’t asking for millions; this why I signed that BS contract in my weakened state. I guess I needed to believe that there was something good for me somewhere. I guess I was delusional about wanting to be cared for or looked out for…maybe I saw something that wasn’t there (you think, duh). That won’t happen again. I know that he was encouraging me with his complaining about home, treating me extra nice. Maybe, I wanted to believe I saw something that wasn’t there. Again, my dumb-ass came on to him and he rejected (which was the right thing to do).
I really thought that he was a nice person but as I look back, he gave me a ‘shh!’ gesture right before the meeting with Renzer – Zomba, rep. Looking back that is probably why Zomba rep. told me after the issue with works to stay away from Larry Roc Campbell. Almost twenty years later, I discovered that he later became Jive Records A & R.
I worked on a few projects with Paul D. Allen. He was a music producer/engineer for Michael Powell’s Vanguards Studio. He is approximately 5’ 10, brown-skinned African American, well dressed quiet but definitely skilled music engineer. I didn’t trust him completely because his ties to Michael Powell and the fact that he scheduled a meeting with me then stood me up but called weeks later ready to work.
Paul was a music producer/engineer for Michael Powell’s Vanguards Studio. I had met Michael Powell but he had his artist that he was promoting and he came across very haughty. Mr. Egomaniacal…..I didn’t trust him and I was afraid of his intentions and I had been shelved before.

Paul was quiet and reserved when I worked with him. Honestly, he supplied one of my favorite music tracks, “Why can’t I” – that was a really good song. I wrote and sung my heart out for that one. He looked up to Roc with respect when I made reference to him. It was almost like he wanted to stand up for him when I began to mock.
Shortly after my battle with Zomba began, I met CC or at least that’s how he introduced himself, I was not expecting that and my instincts said ‘run bitch.’ This was some new stuff and I probably shouldn’t have…but my instincts are rarely wrong. I don’t think he knew that I knew who he was. I had just seen his picture in a magazine associating him to Jive label. He was gorgeous and so I started to pretend as if I didn’t recognize him.
Suddenly, I got really nervous and I decided to make my famous get-away. I ran away because I couldn’t understand why he was in Detroit, at the same club that I was in. I don’t believe in coincidence. His demeanor and timing instilled concern and I was not ready but tried to play big girl but my fear took over.
David McPhearson – Zomba, rep – CC/Jive… I never worked with him but I was infatuated with briefly. He was light-skinned African American, possibly six feet tall and very attractive. I still have no idea of what his role was in this sudden appearance.
Shortly afterward I started to hear stories about something happened bad to someone and people started treating me awful. Implying that he or someone was beat up or hurt. Now how was supposed to feel. I didn’t know what was going on. I didn’t know who was just caught in crossfire and who was responsible. I didn’t know it was a joint effort at the time. Each of them had their own motives and intentions.
It felt like someone had my house wired because that would have been the only way. I didn’t go around telling everyone that he was there. 
It wasn’t long after the incident with Larry that I met with David Renzer, Zomba, rep but he made me feel uncomfortable. I couldn’t read into his intentions probably because I was tore up from what I was going thru on the home front and with my music. I felt that it didn’t matter/I didn’t matter – Just get your paper booboo or so I thought but my heart and mind betrayed me.
I was a mess and it was my first meeting with David Renzer and the other Jive label representative along with Larry, Roc and Ara, this is when I snapped. I had not seen or talked to Larry in a while so seeing him and being in that situation was upsetting at the time. It felt like I was in a pressure cooker and all I could think about was what I was told about him taking credit for my lyrics, combined with my emotional state regarding our incident and life on the home front was not good. It was too much so I took it all out on him but he definitely deserved a lot of that verbal lashing (I had not forgiven him).
I am sure that each of them had their reasons and motives for their actions but there is one thing that I am sure of is that their intentions were definitely self-serving.
Unfortunately, human nature doesn’t always allow for most to wish others well. Instead, it does give many reasons to intervene, attempt to prevent any positivity, and spread a complacent attitude towards doing the right thing.
Per Renzer’s request, I was supposed to submit in writing my claim to my work.





At the onset of what was supposed to be a promising career, these are entries from my actual journals.
December 25, 1993 Journal entry:
‘Hi, it’s me – I had that same dream again that has been driving me crazy for years. You know the weird part of the dream is that I am running and each time it’s with different people. Each time as I plan my escape they are prepared for me. I don’t think I have ever escaped but I keep trying. Sometimes, the dream is so intense that I can actually call it a nightmare. On those days that I wake up sweating and tearing out of the bedroom, only to go turn on the lights.’
‘I think that’s enough about the dream. I feel compelled to talk music… I’d like to start off by saying that I think that the problem with Roc and Ara of Art and Rhythm Productions/Studio is simply said with one word – Egomaniacs.’
‘I just don’t understand why they would not be focused and it’s not like he’s babyface or somebody. He needs the help. How could anybody turn down someone like me? I have no problem working with or even under somebody as long as I am taken care of. Now, that I know the he has no interest in working with me as a team then I have no choice but to view them as competition. It’s on – Let the games begin! I finished “Attraction” (which is now called “Promise Me”, and I think it is a smash. All I need now is to relay it down. Gangsta Groove is almost complete too.’
‘My concern is this, will these new people – Mike from KJM, Paul from Vanguard, Darrell C from K&K – cooperate. I sure hope they don’t let greed or their ego mess up a good thing too.’
The dream that kept haunting was really a warning, a prediction of what was to come. I no longer have that dream.
December 27, 1993 Journal entry 11:30am:
‘I was hoping to have something positive to release on paper but right about now would be a great time to write a sad song. I paged what’s his name and he has not returned the page. Curtis says that I haven’t given him enough time to respond. Bullshit. I hate not having the know-how to create my own music, and then I could be a recluse. Happily at home with my family, where I am safe or at least safer than being anywhere near some other self-centered user.  I hate it when I leave myself open for disappointments. All I can tell myself is that they know not what they do.  I am good at this; actually sometimes I am even great when I put a little effort into it. These next songs that I send in will be the shit or they won’t go anywhere. Zomba hasn’t been even sent my paperwork like they were supposed to. I don’t think they know either. If I choose to move on and not write I would be hurting myself because I know that I could write Grammy winning songs. I will not worry, so excuse me but I think it is time to indulge myself.
December 27, 1993 Journal entry 1:00pm:
‘I received a phone call from Roc to meet him at the studio in half an hour so I went a little late due to an unforeseen occurrence. I just paged again so I don’t know so I guess I better get to work at finishing those for Dave Renzer – Zomba, rep to check out my stuff and flip out again at my unorthodox methods. Well they make me feel like I’m fighting to stay on top of things.’
‘In the letter I plan to mention “Gangsta’s Need Love Too” and my contribution to that song and find out do they require my signature on anything. Also, request my paperwork from Blackstone – Zomba, rep and Renzer – Zomba, rep in NY. Yeah, right – all I got to say is I am pissed off now.’
‘I can’t believe the sucker didn’t call me back. I must move on.’ ‘Curtis, Sean and I have begun to critique what I have done and to try to enhance “Gangsta Groove.” “Curtis is very active in this groove.’
11:00PM –
‘The night ended up horrible. Background didn’t show. I guess I will have to do it myself. Tyra will not hear from me for a long time and she will not be singing on anything that I am on. Sean has let Latonya tell him not to change his style and now he is locked on what he can and cannot do; which gives me nothing to work with. He is useless to me now and he doesn’t finish what he starts. I guess I will redo it myself. By the way Paul never called back around 3:00pm like he said. I will keep pushing on.’

‘I can’t make it without help and cooperation. I cannot believe I am rushing and I don’t even know if this will be wasting my time because Roc is not going to allow me to get anything over a certain percentage. At times like these, I don’t want to talk to anyone and I am not from this day forward that is after I phone Dave Renzer regarding that song with Roc. I refuse to work on another music track with Roc. I refuse to deal with anyone outside of family. I am so hurt, wounded, drained and de-energized.’
‘Goodnight (anyways), I hope as long as that damn dream doesn’t come tonight. I can’t help but to think that they have stolen from me. I must move on and not look back to no one. I will keep struggling forward.’ ‘I was looking forward to working with: Utopia – Karl Reed, KJM – Mike, K&K- Darrell, and Ken Johnson – Angelo Bond or Sanchez.
December 28, 1993 Journal entry:
‘I called Kapp Ivory he says he is ready at the 1st of the year. I have an appointment with KEP Sounds at 6:00 pm tomorrow. I called Angelo Bond and he is setting something up that I can be included in on. Finally, I am happy with my work. Strategy is together. Write hits, and then place hits; it’s just that simple.’
‘I also spoke with Terry Powell and he is ready to bring me a track too and work with me on Nick and his tracks.’
December 29, 1993 Journal entry:
‘Kenny Johnson is also prepared to join forces and kick out hits. I called to request a fax of casting sheet and procedures but Blackstone – Zomba, rep is out of office until January 5, 1994.’
‘Curtis and I discussed which tunes to send and what the letter should say to Dave Renzer – Zomba, rep  and Drew Dixon – Zomba, rep .’
4:30pm-
‘I am ready to get paid and if Zomba chooses to believe then it is their loss because baby, I am unstoppable – with God’s help of course. A good fight always gives me the energy I need to kick out hits.’
‘I am Ne Ne – Notoriously Executing New Era.’



Less than a month later, on March 23, 1995 Handwritten Letter sent to Zomba – Re-typed:
Zomba
137-139 W. 25thStreet
New York, NY 10001
Attn: R. B – Zomba, rep,
It has been brought 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 in May 1995.
{Now how would I have a clue if someone didn’t tell me and give me specific’s. This is the same public that runs around breaking their necks to hurt. I was definitely out of the loop but the source seemed reliable and I did supply a lot of material to all parties included.}
I bring this to your attention because 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.
I would like for this situation to be taken seriously. In addition, I would like a copy of a detailed Royalty statement for Hi Five’s song, “What can I say to you to justify my love” and a copy of (signed) split sheet for my records.
As a whole, they have collected 30 or more songs from me and they are all on this same project.
Larry Roc Campbell laughed and told me that he received money when I signed with Zomba. How is this possible?
I certainly hope that you will handle my administration of copies of materials that were sent to David R – Zomba, rep; Cherry, Drew D – Zomba, rep, and Kymberlee Thornton – Zomba, rep.
Paul D. Allen received a copy and signed split sheets with me. I also have copyrights for the materials:
1.                  Why can’t I?
2.                  Baby stay with me
3.                  Is the sex still good
4.                  Casual Love
5.                  With your love
Larry Hatcher received more than 14 songs. Larry Roc Campbell received more than 20 songs.
Of course, Zomba received copies of all copy-written materials, see list enclosed.
b.      Completed Splitsheets for musical works submitted to Zomba
I completed split sheets on shared works and I required signed agreements for those who chose to work on projects with me.  I was able to secure four or five writers under my Production Company, Seven West. 
See bottom for Split Sheet:

Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!

Chapter 12: Coping methods

The music industry has some complex rules regarding how things are done with regards to how money is distributed. If you work for any particular label or company, your loyalties are supposed to lie with that company. Back then the labels were structured into five major labels. Even though people are shuffled amongst the different companies, again, their loyalties were supposed to remain unscathed.
When I had my first encounter with writing lyrics, I was living in my home town – Detroit, Michigan. I wrote for Lee Marcus and Jake Salazar. Lee was connected with the police department. That was definitely my song lyrics and melody used on that sitcom prior to Zomba contract.
I had refused to sign with other production companies because either they offered no money or they didn’t seem to have my best interest in mind.
I was encouraged by Detroitattorneys to sign with Zomba. Then after painstaking months of hard work and submitting multiple lyrics and melodies, I was subjected to harassment.
I stepped up for credit and monies for my works and I kept pushing; while Detroit groups were trying to sabotage.
Remember, Lee told me of that story of the girl who was robbed of her lyrical credits then forced to commit suicide. In addition, he was associated to the police who never had any good intentions for me because of family’s history.
So here I am, all by myself, stuck listening to all my works on the radio, fighting for what should be mine. Clueless to what was going on around me.
Lee’s group wasn’t happy, Larry was in the Hi-Five’s video of the song that was used to present the contract but he didn’t look happy. As I look back the plan was for Lee’s group to use me for lyrics, make money and then drive me mad. 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. They all knew each other and they all were influential in Detroit.
Getting back to the rules…It turns out that some of the people that I had worked with locally were not supposed to or were in conflict with the plans. It felt like a game was being played within a game and not all the higher ups were in the know. I am sure that this type of thing is not uncommon but this had some extra mess added.


They did not want a woman to succeed; especially me!


Why don’t you just die?


A young man attempted to berate my fight for 

my rights by referencing the dates as if 

violations of my civil rights expires or that it 

does not matter. 


Chains – 

Invisible or Visible 

are still…Chains!
There are no Statutes of Limitations 

on Violations of Civil Rights, Threats and 

Intimidation Tactics, Obstruction of Justice, 

mail tampering, deliberate abuse, etc..!
Just because I am Black does not negate my 

rights to justice!

Just because I am a Woman does not invalidate 

my copyrights!


Just because I am not a man does not make it 

okay to use their positions and power to 

manipulate or orchestrate events 

to circumvent justice!


THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!

Everyday and in Every way, 

I will fight for my rights to justice. 

I could accept it if I had set out to do harm or if 

I had not protected myself with copyrights and 

if I did not maintain thorough documentation 

but for them to just gang up, line up to take my 

materials and then attempt to cause duress and 

influence suicide…

I AM NOT THE ONE!

They sought me out with hate in their heart!


I AM NOT THE ONE!

AND 

IT’S NOT OKAY



Mo·nop·o·ly

Mo·nop·o·ly

 noun \mə-ˈnä-p(ə-)lē\

: complete control of the entire supply of goods or of a service in a certain area or market
: a large company that has a monopoly
: complete ownership or control of something


Mr. Jake Salazar worked as an

entertainment executive, as label manager and various department director to presidents and CEOs of the world’s leading entertainment companies with tenures in affiliate companies such as

Warner Bros, RCA, SONY, Universal, ABC, NBC and CBS Broadcasting.


[1] 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 PowellSylvia Moy, Martha Reeves, Isaiah Thomas, 

Thomas Hearns, John

Salley, Lee Marcus, and Leonard Jones

among other prominent business colleagues.



met and/or worked with 

the highlighted names 

mentioned above and I was 

unaware that 

these individuals worked 

together.


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. 


There they were – 

Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus 

in my living room, 

personally providing me 

with music tracks for 

me to write my lyrics 

and melodies, I guess I 

should have felt honored. 


Jake Salazar, Lee Marcus, 

Leonard Jones and Michael 

Powell were all 

prominent business 

colleagues and they say that 

am the one who is 

guilty of betrayal.



Obviously, I didn’t just pull 


names out of a hat, this


was no accident, and I can 


see why these people want 


me to just die.

 


What did these maniacs do? 


Not one of them tried to offer 


anything, no decency, just 


treachery and you expected 


what to happen exactly?




On May 20, 1996, I filed 

a lawsuit against BMI, 

Zomba and Jive because

of their lack of response to 

my request as to how 

BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA,

Polygram and Jive have 

released songs which 

blatantly infringe upon

my copyrights. I sent these 

lyrics to Zomba and 

discussed these works 

in detail. 

 

I guess since I was not a 

man or because I was not 

married to anyone who was 

properly aligned that they

could control – I was  to be 

sacrificed for their financial 

benefit. It is  customary for 

African-American female 

artist to marry her manager;  

yet, I am the one accused of 

betrayal. 

 

Clearly, I have been denied my 

rights to conduct business, I 

have been denied the right to 

be heard, I have been denied 

justice as a citizen of the U.S. 

and even with all the 

documented proof which 

definitely confirms copyright 

Infringements, and a Monopoly

situation.

 

Though the deal seemed 

to be solid, Zomba sold 

the company to BMG in 1995. 


Note: I filed lawsuit  

which provided these 

companies names to the courts 

and other prominent industry

entertainment attorney’s for 

using my works; which, included 

lyrics and melodies. 

 

All the while they were one in 

the same, working together. 

These songs were played on the 

radio by major artist signed to

BMG, EMI, etc…; throughout the 

years starting after 

Zomba music publishing

contract.

//

Frantically, trying to figure out why this was happening to me, I compiled what I do know and came up with this:

These are the facts surrounding my life:

 

1.  Zomba Publishing Contract states before and after works given prior to Hi-Five’s placements. Could they have known of works presented and placed through Lee Marcus/Jake Salazar? ‘Keep Standing Tall’ was used as a theme song on a popular television sitcom.

2.  Police involvement – all my life, Friends and In-Laws
            In-Laws / Detroit’s Chief of Police – Napoleon
            Best friend’s family closely associated w/ Police
            Brother in-law police

3a. Lee Marcus – Family is police

3b. Jake Salazar – Partnered w/ Lee Marcus

3c.  (5) Five works given to Lee/Jake: ‘Keep Standing Tall’, ‘It’s Love/I’m what you need’, ‘where are you now?’, ‘I need you here’, and ‘Just for you.’

4. Police ruled in favor of Sharon Deasfernandez after she hit my son w/ her car while he was in  front of our house playing. She had no remorse as if it was deliberate.

5.  Police never followed up on domestic violence
case against husband.

6.  Father accused of allegedly killing a police officer in 1969.

7. Mother used to cry all the time at night, hated my father, kept secrets, raised to go to school, not allowed her children to participate in after school activities, no outside contact with schoolmates, no phone privileges, only kingdom hall was allowed.

8.  Mother tried to conceal truth by pressuring me, sent letter to governor, she found Dr. to discredit me without enough time to give wide range diagnosis, added emotional stress, courts dismissed son hit by car, sister raped and double homicide.

9.  Family succumb to violent acts, possibly to convince cooperation.

10.  Mail tampering – search warrant advised I was under surveillance – would explain mail tampering.

11.  Court dismissed/ignored request to assign counsel to avoid protraction due to mismanagement.

This was definitely signs that something just was not right and that this was no accident.

I was beginning to believe that I was that girl that was being pressured into committing suicide.

Given the information, at this time, I was still unable to understand which pieces were relevant and which was coincidental.  Of course, I continued onward and so did the messages…

However, now I can access information that has remained hidden…
