I'm Jesse... I started a project called Heavy Water Factory (many moons ago). lol
I actually signed up to warn other artists, about some recent copyright infringements... that I've been dealing with a lot lately. Anyhow, I'll post that stuff under the appropriate topic. Hope you are all doing well.
Welcome. I want to read up more about the infringement issue as I'm intrigued, especially as I just started running a label. Is this to do with music you released yourself containing uncleared samples or something?

I just wanted to warn some of you, about a recent issue that I've been dealing with... I'm talking to the artist's, groups, producers, etc. on here.
The owner of Van Richter Records (I won't mention his name) has made numerous unauthorized attempts at selling my music, behind my back... He is known by people in the (Industrial genre) record business, as being a fraudulent pain for the past 20 years.
He recently started a phony label called "Muzik Non Stop" where he tried selling three of my albums on Bandcamp. Bandcamp eventually took everything down.
Now he is at it again. Uploading my work to AppleMusic. And this time, under Van Richter Records... I'm still waiting to hear back from Apple about taking it all down.
I'm sharing all this, to advise other artist's... to closely monitor their work, online. He could be trying to steal your work as well.

P.S. A month prior to all this.. He contacted me through Facebook, asking if he could put my back catalog on iTunes etc.

I'm looking forward to sharing my work, my experiences, photos, advice about music equipment, and whatever else I have to offer, that might be helpful. I've been producing Industrial music for 25 years. Signed to and started my own labels. Toured the country. Played in front on three thousand people, and had firecrackers thrown at me on stage. lol All kinds of stories to share.
