Let’s Face the Music!


Let’s face it, even though you may or may not have ties to the music business – you have heard some of the horror stories associated with the business. Although many lives are continuously lost, many aspiring artist are still sending in their demos and running to give their musical works away hoping to make their dreams come true.
For decades we have all heard about artist not getting paid but the first thing you think is one of the following:
1. They did not have their copyrights or they failed to protect their work…Or
2. They did not have legal representation…Or
3. You may actually believe that the individual was at fault….Or
4. You may think they it would never happen to you.
I used to think this was the case but I was so WRONG! 
Although many have protected themselves in every way, many artist, writers and producers have been denied the opportunity to even pursue their claims and are forced to fight for their rights.
1. It’s not just a simple matter of another artist taking credit or a simple issue of copyright infringements. It’s not  just about the music!
2. The initial lawyer will encouraged signing a standard contract with low figures. They may not tell you that when the deal sours or goes bad, that you will need tens of thousands for a legal retainer.
3. They will not tell you about the major issues with ‘conflict of interest between entertainment attorneys within the music industry.
4. They will not tell you about the fact that the courts will not even review your evidence because the ‘system’ is set in place to deny you any other recourse.
5. They will not tell you those behind the scene will be putting too much emphasis on trying to use the music for dual purposes and the ‘double dealing.’
6. They will not tell you that those rights that you believe that you have and are counting on having are simply non-existent when your claims involves millions of dollars and well connected individuals.
Dual Purpose Use: This is when after signing, the artist works are utilized against the aspiring artist in an effort to induce harm and even suicidal responses from the helplessness of being unable to secure representation or assistance.
Double-Dealing: This is when the aspiring artist’s compositions, lyrical works and compilations are spread across multiple labels for use and to be ‘gutted!’ In some cases, this is after falling victim to the ‘twisted’ contract presented by local production company or some want to be ‘slick’ producer. 
FYI: Personally, I was encouraged by legal counsel and I only signed a single 50/50 co-publishing agreement with a major music publisher- Zomba. 
There were no other management or production agreements to justify non-payment for the numerous works that I submitted under Seven West Productions. 
I never received a dime for all of my ‘works’ but I was forced to listen to my ‘gutted’ works reach the top of the charts. However, I received many threats, persecution and intimidation methods used to insist that I surrender.
Apparently, it is an acceptable behavior to refuse compensation for many individuals. 

I guess that the thought of actually paying people for their hard work and encouraging treating aspiring artist like human beings is completely out of the question.
The truth of the matter is that they give you so many enemies and physically hurt too many people to the point where you have to deal with an over-whelming amount of opposition. Don’t be naive and believe that these entities won’t take it to the ‘streets!’ 
Of course, there are many different groups that can actually provide some kind of shelter but it depends on how far down the figurative ‘rabbit-hole’ that you have gone. It depends on how much damage has ensued while you were tending to your ‘wounds.’
Remember, this ‘business’ has eyes and ears everywhere and they saw you coming before you arrived on the scene. 
Being properly aligned doesn’t necessarily ensure that all your dreams will come true instantly. 
In fact; when you stand up to defend your work, you may be interfering with someone’s million dollar deal or cause conflict amongst very dangerous groups. 
Instead, these subjected artist, writers and producers are forced into ‘gladiator’ type scenarios where hate filled crowds provoke and prepare to be entertained by the violence among friends and foes. Each, ferociously fighting each other in a battle to the death over royalties.
These aspiring artist, writers and producers must first get through a gauntlet paved with haters whose sole purpose is to destroy and prevent you from progressing or getting anywhere and even worse.
My point is that I don’t think that you can really compare the music industry to other industries because other industries are held accountable when they blatantly violate individuals.
This cannot be said about the music business because they operate with impunity for decades! Their victims deserve more than being accused of being bitter or embittered.
It is your decision as to whether you choose to ignore the recommendations and warnings regarding conducting business from experienced individuals those in that industry.
Every week, we provide information related to shedding light on the darkest parts of the Music industry and we expose the ‘system’ that allows these illegal activities to continue to operate with impunity.
I would like to encourage you to read up on what’s really going on before you jump in with both feet. Even if you feel like you are well connected and have support, be prepared and fully equipped by learning about the tactics and methods used to steal lives.   
In my articles and books, I provide actual steps that can be taken in order to avoid pitfalls and I provide information to assist in preventing victims.
For more detailed information, please review previous articles and actual documentation which supports all accusations and proves unethical, illegal activities which are supported by the ‘system’ that is supposed to protect your rights!

Stop lying and blaming my deliberate oppression on a lack of a college degree. Going back to college is not going to make greedy lawyers, politicians, racist, liars, bullies and revenge seekers – recognize me as a human being.

Going back to college is not going to make the courts and this system miraculously recognize my valid substantiated claims (that were previously ignored).

Going back to college is not going to erase the lies and blame that has been placed on me and that I have been forced to carry by ruthless cowards!

Going back to college is not going to miraculously give me the rights that I have had repeatedly deprived and stolen from me.

Going back to college is not going to erase the murders of innocents and otherwise; committed by the greedy, the haters and the revenge seekers.

Going back to college is not going to make me forget that a legion of my fellow American citizens, co-workers, friends and family attempted to induce suicidal actions as a result of vilification, alienation and oppression just so that they can continue to hide the truth.

I am glad to disappoint and I would never; especially, when I know better.

My plight is not just about a broken heart, it’s not about greed, and it’s not about revenge. It’s about obtaining true freedom from oppressors who have deliberately used money, power and positions to create a form of enslavement.

My Titles demonstrate decades of torture and abuse. 

…IT’S NOT OKAY!

Bragging rights

I have survived decades of deliberate violations and heinous acts bestowed upon me by a system that betrays it’s own! 
It would appear to many that I am not bothered by my situation simply because I am not in a constant state of panic and running around like a maniac Guess what, you won’t never see that again. 
I have already done that dance. In fact, I have resorted to trying every method known to mankind to obtain freedom.
I will never give those the satisfaction of seeing me tremble at the horrific events that I have been forced to be personally subjected to. 
Just because I am not spending every day in an uproar does not mean that this is acceptable. Just because I am not running to the same groups that assisted with initiating this madness does not make this acceptable. 
I am so thoroughly disgusted at all of the events that have transpired but I will not allow my health, my mental or emotional stability to be affected because of my current ‘situation’ that is being misrepresented to the public.
This is not okay and no one should have to be subjected to this way of life.

Enough About Me…

     Created & Written By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace 

     E.O.A.A. Weekly News Article: Friday, February 3, 2015
Enough About Me…
 

 

I have already made it perfectly clear that this is not just about some minor copyright infringement issue or about some disgruntled artists. I have already clearly established that regardless of having had their copyrights secured, initial legal consultation, supporting documentation, etc…

Those with power and position have had a head start on ensuring that I personally was left in the dark while all of the gory details have been and continue to blamed on powerless individuals. 
 
For over twenty years, people have just accepted without question whatever excuse that has been provided to them.
For twenty years, people have manipulated and conspired to hide the truth.
On a personal note just because I am not spending every day in a panicked uproar does not mean that this public fiasco is acceptable. 


I am so thoroughly disgusted at all of the events that have transpired but I will not allow my health, my mental or emotional stability to be affected because of my current ‘situation’ that is being misrepresented to the public. 
I find it truly disturbing that people can accept blatantly allow the violating individuals rights and just simply believe any explanation given that would allow them to just turn away from an obvious treacherous situation but I guess life goes on…for some.
Why would I give myself a heart attack just because we live in a world where the wicked dominate? But I still love waking up every morning to another opportunity to change my world! 
 
I just don’t believe that it is acceptable to just stand by and allow our youth, our future to walk into (figurative) ‘burning buildings’ without warning them of the dangers and fully equipping them with knowledge that will prepare them for the future!

Enough about me…


It occurred to me that even though the courts can be blocked, justice can be hindered and that the world’s normal routes to battling many injustices don’t actually work as they should…

Let’s be honest and acknowledge that shattered dreams leads to new drug users, severe depression and even suicide.

These young aspiring artist, writers and producers will have a better chance at having a successful career when they are given the tools to survive the ‘business!’


In all of these many years I can’t stop asking myself, “Where are all of the decent human beings that care about injustices, people’s rights and our future?” 

In an effort to reach organizations that
encourage the education of our youth,
I am reaching out to ALL nonprofit
organizations to offer SWP, LLC’s
Platinum 30/40/50 Program.
This program enables our discounted titles to be used as a fundraiser for your sponsored events.
 

Each organization can make a difference while also educating our aspiring artist on some of the many tactics used to ensnare. 

Let’s work together to prevent shattered dreams from leading to new drug users, severe depression and even suicide.

 

These young aspiring artist, writers and producers will have a better chance at having a successful career when they are given the tools to survive the ‘business!’

 

I decided to direct my attention to legal organizations who would have experience with intellectual property laws; such as copyrights, patents, etc…

 

I also would like to extend this offer to nonprofit organizations who are dedicated specifically to helping writers protect their intellectual property.

 

The world of music is global and that’s why this program includes all places within the United States and abroad.

 

The problem that is solved by utilizing this program.

By utilizing our program we can encourage our aspiring artist writers to follow their dreams but also ensure that they are fully equipped and prepared for the world. Seven West Productions has compiled four publications which demonstrate firsthand what awaits them.

We provide supporting documentation that demonstrates the tactics used and the personal experiences of those who fell victim.

Why do you need our products?

Children and young adults are facing many issues and in most cases they do not always listen to their parents for many different reasons. Sometimes it requires an outside source to get their attention. In this fast paced world, it may require a more uncut direct approach.

SWP provides much needed information that cannot be found elsewhere to those interested in the Music Business and Aspiring Artist.

Being that Music is affecting so many lives, a part of everyone’s life and that it is in everything from politics to religion.

Music Business: Tricks of the Trade!

 

 

 

E.O.A.A WEEKLYFriday, September 26, 2014, Written by Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace Bio | Email Website | Twitter | YouTube | Online Store 

“The information in this 
article derived in full and in part from 
Music, Murder and Mayhem – A True Story! 
and Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!
All copyrights reserved”
Music Business: Tricks of the Trade!

“Understanding the Game!’

In my previous Article: 6, “What’s in Your Contract?” I mentioned the importance of reviewing your contracts, knowing what to look for in your agreement. I feel the need to provide more information regarding specific parts of your agreements.

In the beginning of my venture at seeking a career in music, I wish that I have someone to share the whole truth about the business with me.
When you sign a music related or music publishing contract, it should be ‘a given’ and fully understood that they would want to pursue royalties. You would think that they would want to defend your work since they are contracted to receive a percentage of your work because you are a part of their team.
The first thing that comes to mind is that you are protected by this major music publishing company. You believe that they will fight for you because they have a stake in your work as well… but in most cases – this is far from the truth.
You would think that most attorney’s would jump at an opportunity to represent a plaintiff against copyright infringement; wherein, copyrights were secured, publishing contracts, proof of mailing, phone records, and recordings of works which were maintained.
  
I am speaking to you from personal experience when I tell you exactly how it is done. I can provide documented proof of any and all accusations regarding the practices of those in the music business. I am able to demonstrate exactly how the ‘system’ enables and assist with the dehumanization that has been allowed to continue for decades.
Although you may already be aware, I signed a 50/50 Co-Publishing contract wherein I was promised compensation for lyrics and melodies.
Prior to signing with a major music publishing company, I consulted with two separate entertainment attorneys. One of these lawyers was referred by the Bar Association. 
Remember, the simple fact that any well-established entertainment attorney that encourages signing a ‘standard’ contract for low figures, is not looking out for their clients interest. All entertainment attorney’s know that when the deal sours, any potential attorney that the artist seeks for assistance will require a very large retainer after the damage is done.
There has to be something unethical about working against individual artist when they have full knowledge of how the industry operates; yet, they trade favors and artist like slaves.
I never received any monies for the numerous works submitted; which were over forty compilations of lyrics and melodies that miraculously found their way on the radio and up the charts. 
There were no management or producer contracts (signed or otherwise that could be used) to justify refusing payments but this co-publishing contract was not honored but used to take and avoid paying royalties.
Let me demonstrate how the process really works most of the time.
The contracts presented will proudly list all of the major labels and their casting list that are given to you shows popular artist names that they say will be used to shop your materials.

Below this article is a copy of an actual contract portion listing most of the major labels and record companies:

 
 
These representatives of Zomba/Jive/BMG used the contract to solicit musical works from its own writers and afterwards parts of works are taken (or materials gutted).
After these gutted works begin to be played in constant rotation, then in their defense of copyright infringements, they used this same contract to state that they can choose not to pursue your infringements.
Although the courts never even allowed the case to be presented (unjustly, dismissed without valid cause), the attorney for the major music publishing company attempted to utilize that ‘standard’ contract in their defense. SEE BELOW:

(Below is an actual portion of a major music publishing company’s contract that is used as a defense against allegations of copyrights infringements):

 
 
The kicker is, in the beginning they exaggerate their interest in offering you an opportunity for recording artist deal while their true intentions and purpose is that they are actually ‘working’ you for materials after giving a little up-front compensation.
Later, they will state in their defense that ‘you refused to pursue claims’. 

Pursue claims…with what?

They offer a very small amount for initial investment with full knowledge that after they steal your material, any attorney that is in a position to help would require an enormous amount of money for a retainer in order to represent you. 

THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROCESS FOR GENERATIONS 

AND NO ONE HAS STOPPED THIS UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR!

 

EVEN AFTER MULTIPLE LIVES ARE STOLEN 

AND LIVES LOST DUE TO THIS TRICKERY! 

Other than the few dollars for the initial song, I never received a dime but I was forced to listen to my materials on the radio that were ‘gutted.’ However, I did received threats and became victims of acts of violence and civil rights
violations. I can only imagine what Sara Baartman had to endure.
The entire ‘system’ encourages the use of the music business as a tool for the influential and powerful to continue to conduct its ‘business’ of stealing lives. I can tell you that this music ‘game’ will leave you starving, bleeding
on the side of the road and fighting everyone – literally. 


When I researched the business, there were no books that told the ugly truth. There are no books that tell you that your contracts and copyrights don’t mean anything to a system geared to protect the wealthy. There are no books that tell you that you have no rights when you don’t have tens of thousands of dollars for a lawyer’s retainer.
There will be so many lies and everyone will believe everything said about you without question and you will be unable to maintain employment or attempt to earn any type of living.
It is important that people understand the ‘game’ and how it ultimately affects others.
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.
They cut, chop and shop your work. They take all of the profits and then tell you that they can choose NOT to pursue your copyright infringements when they themselves are most likely the culprits.
What is truly sad is that these people don’t have to run the business this way but they choose to conduct business in this manner. It would be more profitable to be decent but that would be too much like right.
Conveniently, they can use this contract to basically take your work or even allow your works to be used without pursuing your interest.
Again, I am speaking to you from personal experience when I tell you exactly how it is done. In my experience, I never had the chance to go before the Judge. He completely disregarded my copyrights and ignored my request for counsel.
Don’t forget about the ‘built-in Conflict of Interest concern; in that, no entertainment attorney is going to fight for you against major music labels if it means risking their opportunity for future business.
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.
Ultimately, in spite of having copyrights secured by myself, copies of materials, copies of receipts for overnight mailings, and other correspondences submitted to Zomba representatives, it did not matter. My revised complaint complied completely with Fed. Rules of Civil Procedure but the courts responded as if they did not receive this revised copy. Review the Proof yourself at: Breaking News 

Review the Proof yourself at: Breaking News ! (click here or see below – Breaking News: The Business of Music: Operating wi…)
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, I was denied. The acts of violence bestowed upon my family, friend and others were ignored and all of my supporting documents; such as, copyrights, certified mail receipt, etc… were referred to as miscellaneous papers.
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.
 ‘‘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…
Clearly, I have been denied my rights and they continue to deprive others for decades using the methods listed above.
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.
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?
These major record labels BMG, MCA, PolyGram, EMI, the Sony Group or the WEA Group are listed in the contract and in the casting sheets. They are sent out to their roster of writers in order to shop with these multiple label’s Artist. After
placement of ‘gutted’ works, they decide who they choose to pay or who not to.
These ‘entities’ mentioned in defendant’s response were on Zomba’s casting list and in contract showing that not only did Zomba work with them to place songs; shortly after contract their name changed to Zomba/BMG. 
Zomba’s defense attorney stated in their response regarding songs that were in question that ‘allegations were unclear.’ However; prior to filing suit against them I received a letter stating that they were investigating my claims.
In fact, Zomba denied even receiving or having any works in spite of my return receipts and although some of the songs mentioned in copyright infringements were listed, were actually referenced and within my co-publishing agreement.
‘The Recipe’ has been mastered and fine-tuned to make this dehumanization of mankind an acceptable form of modern day slavery. The situation is presented to the public in many different ways to justify and encourage further abuse. 
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. Events are creating to discourage any assistance
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.
There are many who have 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 are and were circumventing justice when I was promoting my books that were exposing the blatant tactics and methods subjected.
Let’s just say that 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.
In short the ‘individual’ does not have rights! Anyone can be presented as undeserving and be denied justice so be aware when you sign any contract!
This may not be everyone’s experience but I can tell you that none of them receives ALL of their compensation, if any.
Remember, there is no such thing as half-way crooks! If any of them can get away with not paying you, they will (even if they have to create reasons why they shouldn’t).
Everything in these Articles and Books are based on fact and can be substantiated with documentation from public record.
I only wish that I had someone take the time to share even a tiny bit of the information with me prior to my decision to pursue a career in the music industry.
Those rights that you believe that you have and are counting own having are simply non-existent.
Your copyrights are useless because the courts that are supposed to enforce the laws will bend to the will of the rich and powerful.
This reminds me of one particular instance where a contract was used to justify blatant injustice in the case of Sara Baartman.
The Sara Baartman’s of today are still put in positions to be killed, never compensated, put on display, lied on and manipulated against, left to die, to be raped and dehumanized. My previous blog tells of her story and can be found at: http://musicbizadirtygame.blogspot.com/2014/06/who-is-sara-baartman.html

Again, there has to be something unethical about working against individual artists and writers when they have
full knowledge of how the industry operates; yet, they trade favors and artist like slaves. 



I will discuss in great detail the problem with the entertainment attorney’s and the issue of ‘Conflict of Interest’ in next week’s Article 8: Conflict of Interest and the Music Business! – Release date – October 3, 2014!

Everything in these Articles and Books are based on fact and can be substantiated with documentation from public record. I only wish that I had someone take the time to share even a tiny bit of the information with me prior to my decision to
pursue a career in the music industry.
 
Those rights that you believe that you have and are counting own having are simply non-existent. Your copyrights are useless because the courts that are supposed to enforce the laws will bend to the will of the rich and powerful.
AGAIN, THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING PROCESS FOR GENERATIONS 
AND NO ONE HAS STOPPED THIS UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR!
 
EVEN AFTER MULTIPLE LIVES ARE STOLEN 
AND LIVES LOST DUE TO THIS TRICKERY!
I didn’t just run out and write a tell-all book. It wasn’t until many years later that I decided to write my first book on the subject entitled, Music Business: It’s a Dirty Game!
 
I feel that these Articles and books differ because it doesn’t just give you words from one person’s viewpoint, it provides step by step documentation proving how the artist works are stolen and how they are able to continue stealing lives with this modern day form of enslavement. This book uses contracts with major music publisher, copyrights, court records and more to demonstrate tactics used to steal, oppress and destroy lives.
My plight is not just about a broken heart, it’s not about greed, and it’s not about revenge. I don’t have time to be running around blaming and trying to hurt people. I am too busy struggling and trying to live. It’s about obtaining true freedom from oppressors who have deliberately used lies, money, power and positions to create a form of enslavement. 
  Being that Music is affecting so many lives, a part of everyone’s life and that it is in everything from politics to religion…denying individuals their rights is bad business and we should all make music our business to prevent this from continuing to destroy lives!
