The copyright registration for Beg for Mercy was lodged in May 2009 and lists the claimant as Wilshire Records Limited “by written agreement”, as employer for hire. No parties have yet to comment on the matter. Lambert is named as the sole defendant, Colwel as the sole plaintiff.

UDPATE: The copyright dispute claims that Lambert issued a false takedown order under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) against the Plaintiff and the Plaintiff’s purported work. “Upon information and belief, Lambert, through his authorized agent and representative, knowingly materially misrepresented to Amazon.com in the ‘takedown notice’ that Amazon’s promotion and sale of the Album infringe Lambert’s rights.” The suit also seeks a declaratory judgment as to the copyright ownership of underlying work.

    Saying right now, Adam pull a Bowie and get rid of the Band….audition folks that want to stay with new ground rules again…I’d keep Cam and condition the rest…I swear other pop stars backing bands are known and made known by the singer they are backing…apparently, Welsford, Steve, Monte, etc..think you’re supposed to fund them for your entire lifetime…they are not grown men and need to get their own stardom and talent…please clean house quickly…if you keep some of the band tell them off the bat that we are not a band, I’m a solo artist, you will not write songs for or with me, appear on my album, etc..Cam doesn’t need it because you did a song with her and she’s legit. But harder rules for the others…unless you get legends like Nile Rodgers to tour with you, you don’t need the backing band thinking they are entitled to what you have…I’m serious, leeches like you’re dealing with destroy careers…clean it up…please

    If we all keep a VERY POSITIVE attitude about the outcome of this for Adam I am confident he will prevail in the end!
