    Bob Dylan sued over Dignity & more

    Few artists can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter James Damiano. Twenty-two years ago James Damiano began an odyssey that led him into a legal maelstrom with Bob Dylan that, to this day, fascinates the greatest of intellectual minds.

    As the curtain rises on the stage of deceit we learn that CBS used songs and
    lyrics for international recording artist, Bob Dylan. Bob Dylan's name is credited to the songs. One of those songs is nominated for a Grammy as best rock song of the year. Ironically the title of that song is Dignity.

    Since auditioning for the legendary CBS Record producer John Hammond, Sr., who influenced the careers of music industry icons Billy Holiday, Bob Dylan, Pete Seger, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Ray Vaughan, James has engaged in a multimillion dollar copyright infringement law suit with Bob Dylan.

    It is uncontested by Bob Dylan and or Bob Dylan's law firms Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, Parcher Hayes & Snyder, and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher that Bob Dylan and people in Bob Dylan's entourage have solicited James Damiano's songs and music for over ten years.

    According to Bob Dylan's attorney Orin Snyder James Damiano's website has been viewed over 1,400,000 times. In 1997 Orin Snyder lead attorney for Bob Dylan and named partner in Parcher Hayes and Snyder downloaded this website and produced it to Judge Simandle stating to the court that it had been visted over one million four hundred thousand times

    A CD Rom of this motion and a four-hour videotape of segments of various depositions taken during discovery have been produced to the United States Marshall's Service. After reviewing plaintiff's materials The United States Marshall's Service commented in Plaintiff James Damiano's favor, stating that Damiano's case was a "shut tight case" that he should have won.

    The most interesting and shocking fact about this website is that Bob Dylan has tried to suppress the truth and the facts of this case by applying to the court for a confidentiality order designating all discovery materials as confidential.
    Suppression of the truth as far as we can remember is a tactic often used in Communism.

    The only discovery to be completed is Bob Dylan's deposition.

    James Damiano subpeoned Bob Dylan for his November 11th 1999 hearing and Bob Dylan never appeared in court.

    Have you ever lied to Mr. Damiano?

    Hmmmmmmm

    This is the one and only message posted by this anonymous member.

    Given its nature, does that tell us something?

    PS to "6string," it's Billie Holiday, not Billy.

    Bob Dylan stole my skateboard once when we were at a picnic. Lost all my picnic spirit, let me tell ya. I tried to get his ass in court but he just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarettes while muttering something like "To live outside the law you must be honest." He's the neighborhood bully, if you ask me.
