Bob Dylan fooled the world for decades claiming to have written many of the melodies to his hit songs when in fact most of the melodies were from preexisting songs that he did not write, including Blowin In The Wind.

In a last nail in the coffin scenario James Damiano's movie "Eleven Years" draws the straw that breaks the camel's back, rivets Bob Dylan to his secret past of plagiarism and rewrites musical history"......Virtue Films

No artist can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter James Damiano. Thirty 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.

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

As the curtain rises on the stage of deceit we learn that CBS / Sony international recording artist, Bob Dylan not only used songs and lyrics written by James Damiano but also solicited Mr. Damiano's materials for a period of over ten years and eleven months.

As per Judicial filings Bob Dylan's name is credited to the songs. One of those songs is nominated for a Grammy as the best rock song of the year. Ironically the title of that song is Dignity.

"It is judicially uncontested by Bob Dylan and or Bob Dylan s law firms Manatt, Phelps & Phillips , Parcher Hayes & Snyder, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Hecker Brown and Sherry and Sony House Counsel that Bob Dylan and people in Bob Dylan s entourage have solicited James Damiano s songs and music for over ten years and eleven months.

Translation: You can't take on Bob Dylan without running into the machine that protects him...

I just happened to run across this group in the course of other searches, so I probably don't belong here. But I do wonder: where does this stuff about Bob Dylan not writing his own material come from? (Yes, of course, he steals like an artist. All artists do that. It's only in the course of the post-Disney 20th century that this somehow became anathema.)

Bob has made it clear that everything comes from somewhere else. He listens to a song, for example, until it reworks itself in his head to his new song. He reinvisions things. He paints over old photos.

That may make him a derivative artist...

That being said, he is also known as a tough businessman, can be difficult to work with and will nickel and dime everyone. His great bassist on Desire, Rob Stoner, can't even get free or discounted tickets to Bob's concerts...and Bob still owes him back pay...
