Since the death of Michael Jackson three years ago his estate has boasted earnings of over $350 million dollars…while I as a co-writer on two tracks on four posthumous MOTOWN releases, including Michael’s greatest solo hits…has earned me less than $6000…yes SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS!

Do you believe it…I DON’T!

I don’t think I’m overly suspicious of a company that once was in bed with THE NAZIS, whose holdings include several labels, acquired from the PURPLE GANG as well as dozens of independent labels once backed by ORGANIZED CRIME.

This morning when I read this I freaked out!    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/21/universal-emi-merger-ftc-_n_1903776.html

Since I started writing about the treatment I’m getting from the “JACK-OFFICERS” from UMG…a few hundred of my readers who are artists, songwriters and publishers contacted me and said that they were faced with similar problems and asked me what they can do about it.

First check out some of the dubious things I’ve discovered about UMG…then email me with your stories! in the meantime, my investigation continues…

Now that I’m going after the bad guys in the music business, The only thing that can keep me safe now is transparency, so I private messaged 100 of my FACEBOOK friends, and told them who the perpetrators might be in the event something happens to me.

It’s funny how many people have been screwed by the same people I have who like my idea of a CLASS ACTION AUDIT of record and publishing companies, but are afraid of retaliation.

CHECK OUT THESE THREE ARTICLES AND THE COMMENTS…IF SOMETHING SIMILAR HAS HAPPENED TO YOU, PLEASE ADD YOUR STORY TO THE REST OF THE COMMENTS …REMEMBER THERE’S POWER IN NUMBERS.
