Following five years of training she is now a professional boxer; and really can knock out anyone in the music industry. As her own boss; Alisa Apps is rewriting the rules and changing the game forever. Don't forget to order her album and tell everyone!
SONG-STEALING JOHN NEWMAN BREAKS TIES WITH UMG
If you steal from Team Apps, we will find out. And when we do, we will come after you legally and very publicly. We now have safeguards in place, and the right lawyers, so we will never stop until we win. We enjoy collaborating with other artists, and we love creating music, but if the corporations or the powers-that-be decide to ever again steal our music, we won’t care about their excuses. We will fight them at every turn. We exposed John Newman as a plagiarizing hack, who lacks the genuine talent Team Apps has consistently demonstrated year in and year out. So, it’s no surprise that Newman and Universal Music Group have parted ways. Because of our lawsuit and everything we have done to expose Newman, we join a growing number of artists who won’t tolerate theft of our work. It is unmistakable that Newman’s song "Love Me Again" copied much of Alisa Apps' song "Need To Know", which was written years earlier. Check out our side-by-side comparisons and street interviews on YouTube to hear for yourself. We have, and will continue to have, a great relationship with the fans and with the people, and we will keep Rising. UMG tried to pacify Alisa Apps before, but they failed; and now John Newman is out for good. The fight will continue. Alisa Apps & Team Apps
MY LAWSUIT AGAINST UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP / JOHN NEWMAN | Q&A
Q: What is going on with your lawsuit against Universal? A: I had – and still have – a great case… but there were complexities in the legal system and the court rules, that weren’t considered by my attorney, and my case was thrown out before I even got to a jury. Unbeknownst to me – and to my lawyer as it turns out – Universal is a complicated web of parent and subsidiary companies, all with similar names but different locations and purposes, and my lawyer… sued the wrong one. I’ve since learned this is a frustratingly common tactic for large corporations to avoid being sued. Believe me, I was pissed beyond belief when I found out about this, but unfortunately, the problem couldn’t be fixed, so the judge threw out the case. And to make matters worse, the statute of limitations had run by the time all of this was revealed, so I couldn’t simply start over by suing the right subsidiary of Universal. Q: If you lost your case, how are you still able to say Universal stole your music? A: This is a great question, because it’s somewhat misleading to say “I lost my case.” My case never got to a jury. I was never able to have my expert testify that John Newman’s song ripped off mine. I didn’t get to investigate the people at Universal who had my song years before Newman released his plagiarized version. I never really got a chance to even… present my case. I still say, listen to the songs side-by-side. It speaks for itself. Universal had my song, they liked my song, but they gave it to another artist to sing without my permission. If this case got to a jury, they would hear exactly what you all have heard. Blatant plagiarism. But, unfortunately, I’ve learned the hard way that the legal world isn’t quite as straight forward. Universal has a gigantic team of lawyers all waiting to pounce on anyone, like me, to make sure cases, like mine, NEVER get in front of a jury. Q: What is next in terms of a lawsuit? A: OK, so…I have found new attorneys. And they have presented some possible solutions, but I am MUCH more involved in the brainstorming and legal analysis going forward. I trusted my attorneys before… trusted that they knew the legal rules and would sidestep any landmines… but I’m not making the same mistake twice. This time I’m educating myself on the law and how my case should progress, and I’m definitely involved in the decision-making process. In the meantime, all I can say is that I will be updating you all as things move forward, and if you have questions, I’ll do my best to answer them. Thanks! Alisa Apps
YOU AND ME MAKING MONEY
For those of you who have pre-ordered my album, I want to THANK YOU and tell you that you have just become a member of a “super group”. While PRE-selling my highly anticipated ‘Top Of The World’ album, we are getting interest from every corner of the world, and remarkably 80 percent of all pre-orders sold are physical CD’s. It’s starting to remind me of Adele type record sales where lots of physical albums were sold. This is truly exiting. Because of the interest in, and significance of this album we will be moving the official release date a few months later, rather than January 26, 2018. The “super group” will still get their TOP OF THE WORLD digital album and/or CD sent on January 26th. So SUPER GROUP, you are being rewarded for being the supers who believed in me and put your hands in your wallet when I first announced the launch of TOTW. Today I closed a deal with a digital strategy company. Watch, we will have a brand-new website ready within 2 weeks. It will be set up to handle the volume of sales anticipated. There will also be stunning new t-shirts for girls and guys and snapback hats among other great things. Since the beginning, I always knew I was different. This way of thinking has completely pushed me to work even harder, be badass, bring you groundbreaking new music (which you will get to buy soon), and now I will be pushing the envelope even further this year with an innovation that will make MY FANS MONEY. I am so excited to announce my brand-new music and merch sales technology. The most active FANS using this unique system could be paying off their car notes every month. I am self-financed, self-directed and I am the only one in music who is fighting the crooked music industry and their over-hyped popstars (Knockout Popstars). I have a federal lawsuit against the largest music company in the world (Alisa Apps vs Universal Music Group) for copying my song ‘Need To Know’. It’s been tough. I’ve been a lot on my own and it hasn’t been an easy path. This is my journey. You are on a different journey. But I think this one we can come together and make history. But now get ready because together we are going to say f**k you to big business, f**k you Spotify. I will be filling you in on ALBUM date and My FANS MAKING MONEY details in my upcoming newsletters. But I need you to join my mailing list HERE. Together we are rewriting the rules and changing the game forever. NEVER MISS A THING, SUBSCRIBE TO MY NEWSLETTER HERE.
