Iconoclast Truth

[[[ Really Bad Radio Deja Vu ]]]
!!!Hearing your composition of lyrical melodical intellectual property playing on the radio, but you haven't released it yet!!!

We all should note that you can't permanently erase digital files.

You also cannot determine:
- who may have heard the material that was stolen, before it was stolen,
- neighbors in the peripheral area of where the majority of the songwriting took place, who may be willing to back you up.

You Can Determine....
whose voice it is in the files
(obtained without information or consent) that they thought they erased permanently,....

Analyze/ identify a voice, it works just like DNA, or a fingerprint. Its called voiceprinting.

A persons voice print is unique as their DNA.

Than being said, there are people out there who did this to me, and are probably laughing thinking I'm an easy target, stupid etc.,....

I have curtailed my spontaneous lyrical improvisation to protected parameters only, and I record everything no matter how rough it sounds in its first breath.

not that the perpetrators give a flying **** but...
It is soul crushing to have some of your best material stolen and then be tormented for YEARS by having it rubbed in your face constantly by having to hear it, all the while experiencing all of the fringe benefits that poverty obscurity have to offer.

I wonder how many people out there have experienced this, but are too weirded out, bummed out, or embarrased to come forward and say anything, for fear of ridicule.

I take solace in the fact that my songwriting ability is not a finite resource, but it is a precious and unique resource and must be guarded diligently.

With awareness and unity, we can support each other in giving credit where credit is due, and/or long overdue, or fighting for it if push comes to shove. Ill lead.
