RSE Music Copyright Infringements - RSE Live-stream Videos - Lawsuits

It is not well know that JZ Knight - JZK,Inc succeeded in taking down and gagging many other YouTube videos due to the NZ and US lawsuits claiming copyright infringements.
These Youtube videos clearly evidence JZ Knight's religious bigotry and violent hate speech and illegal activities taking place at RSE.
They are accurate, unedited and in context, used under US law of 'Fair Use Doctrine' and Citizen Journalism that were legitimately and legally uploaded to Youtube in the public interest and rights to know.
Unfortunately I do not have millions of dollars to fight a vicious and wealthy cult leader in the NZ courts defending my freedom of speech.
Defending myself in the NZ courts has already cost me over $40.000 in legal fees to the NZ LSA.
At the end of the day I was effectively forced by the NZ LSA (Legal Aid Services) into a settlement agreement with JZK, Inc/ Knight, this was fourteen months preparing my defense for the trial.

On a side note.....The RSE production music JZK used as a backdrop to her RSE live stream broadcasts and Ramtha performances I doubt very much Knight obtained the music copyright permissions and licenses.
When I loaded the 20 minutes 'JZK Behind the Mask' to Youtube, it was immediate flagged for music copyright.
The music industry uses an electronic music tag that red-flags copyrighted music. This is normal procedure to protect legitimate copyright holders..
It may well turn out that the music industry/artist may have a case to sue Knight for copyright infringement to have used their property for a backdrop prop for the RSE,Inc productions.

For the record....Here's a list of the videos the public has been denied viewing,
that sooner or later I and others such as Virginia Coverdale and Glen Morgan can upload to YouTube to expose those that deceive and destroy innocent lives without the threat of losing our homes to unfounded and vicious lawsuit fronted by a wealthy cult leader.

I very much doubt that RSE bothers to secure license for either the recorded copyrighted music that is used at live events at the RSE compound or the interstitial segments of recorded copyrighted music used in the RSE Internet broadcasts.

RSE likes to couch itself as a motivational speaker business if you read statements of Mike Wright. The music used at RSE and in the broadcasts is certainly not used in an educational context such as discussing the music itself and fair use doctrine would allow playing the music in order to be able to discuss the music. The music is clearly incidental and used for entertainment, which would require securing a performance license in the United States.

I did check BMI and ASCAP which are organizations in the US who control blanket licensing and distribution of performance royalties to musicians. As far as I can tell, RSE is not a customer of either organization.

Further, I would be surprised if History Channel was compensated for or notified of RSE's use of History Channel's video about, "James 3." While it was used in an instructional context, the use of the James 3 material in the 2011 RSE lecture went well beyond citation of facts in an instructional setting. The RSE presentation was essentially a performance of the prerecorded video from the History Channel TV program.

Thanks Ockham :idea:

What adds evidence that JZ Knight/RSE,Inc violated the music copyright of others is;
recorded during the US court depositions via Mike Wright claimed on oath he, nor RSE, did not posses copies of those RSE live steam videos.
Why would he claim this?
Because >JZ Knight did not have a license to use the music< . It would have been doubly illegal to have made copies of the music and self incriminating for commercial piracy.
For JZ Knight to admit to have kept a video recording would be much the same as a burglar keeping a video of themselves stealing from a house they had broken into.
No doubt JZ Knight ordered her staff to destroy all copies of those RSE live stream events and will claim that the copies they have came via those they are suing. Another fact that will surface in time is JZ Knight - JZK,Inc doews not hold copyright for those live-stream recording..
again... they cannot, withstanding the music imbedded in those videos is unlicensed and self incriminating for music piracy and false copyright claims.
Just another dirty secret of JZ Knight/ RSE,Inc hidden in plain sight.... :roll:

Hi Freenow,

It depends....

Apr 24, 2007 Re:"Reminds me of fairly recently (within a few years) when we were told to get rid of the videos, The Two Paths and the Rockumentary because they were old timelines.
I think the reason with the rockumentary was/is that she never had the integrity to get permission to use the music on them, or, if she did, she got some sort of licensing "for educational purposes etc. I happened to have bought a copy at the outback and have kept my receipt just in case I have the time to follow up on this one.
To All Prospective/Current Students of RSE; If you have doubts, please read these personal stories

The Where Angels Fear to Tread - A Rockumentary videos were pulled from the shelves and all copies were requested to be returned to RSE.
Apparently JZ Knight realized “too late” her performance of a drunken and belligerent Ramtha did not match her glossy PR image and should be buried literally!..
I suspect also..That JZ Knight did not have the legal licensing to use most of the music content.
Soooo... An RSE staff member was ordered to bury thousand of these VHS tapes on the RSE campus property using a backhoe “near the dead horse! :shock:
I think “Tree posted on this subject some time ago.
