I gave my book to Cory Booker and he made it into a reality series – without my permission. What would you do if you wrote the book that started the Brick City Movement and a media-darling mayor and his Cablevision co-conspirators violated your copyright? Of course you would take them all to court!
That’s what I’m doing – suing them in the United States Supreme Court for $21, 325, 828. I saw Cory Booker one night, walking down Market Street toward Newark Penn Station. I said to myself, “That’s Cory Booker.” He was walking by himself, with his shirt cuffs rolled up. So I went into my book bag and grabbed a Brick City. I got a business card out of my wallet. I stepped to the then-future mayor and senator, introduced myself and my book, and told him, “This is a gift.” Cory Booker was enthusiastically supportive in his words. Some time later I heard there was a “Brick City” movie, starring Cory Booker. A homeboy of mine who had bought three of my books from me as well as seen the so-called reality series seemed to think they were both my work. So I bought the DVD and checked it out.
I discovered 250 similarities, where 75 of the book’s 113 pages (66%) had similarity to the movie, including 93 character similarities, amounting to 2/5 of the movie content coming from the book. So I did what I had to do. It’s been a long hard battle but I can’t just let them rip me off. Keep watching and let’s see what the Supreme Court Justices do. Let’s see if Cory Booker keeps hiding and makes me keep fighting him, Lisa Durden, Forest Whitaker, Mark Benjamin, Evan Shapiro, Sundance Channel, Ed Carroll, Rainbow Media Holdings LLC, James Dolan, and Cablevision Systems Corporation.

UPDATE: December 2015 A.D. – The Brick City Copyright Infringement Case has been resubmitted to the Supreme Court.
Three years ago, after weaving through the U.S. Federal Court System without paying any money through the use of “in forma pauperis”, the Supreme Court corruptly put up obstacles to my justice. They knew that I had no job, would have $148 after paying bills, and had just gotten custody of my youngest child.
The Supreme Court also knew that I had strong evidence proving my Brick City book was substantially ripped off to profit some of the most powerful people in the United States. Regardless, the Clerk of the Supreme Court demanded that I pay a $300 fee to sue those millionaires, and insisted that I submit my papers in an off-the-wall 6 1/8-inch-by-9 1/4-inch format within 21 days.
So at that time I borrowed money $300 from my daughter’s college funds and sent what I could affford: 40 copies of my papers on normal, everyday, 8-½ x11-inch paper. I expected that as elsewhere in the federal court system, the response would be that I had submitted on time in good faith and there would be an opportunity to re-submit. Instead, the Clerk of the U.S. Supreme Court sent me a letter saying I sent the wrong sized paper so they considered the case closed. But it ain’t closed. Because now I have a teaching job, and I saved the money to print booklets as the Clerk required.
The Brick City Copyright Infringement Case is open for further publicity and pleas through legitimate means. Because I shouldn’t have to take an elected politician who represents me into The Supreme Court for violating my copyright and hijacking Brick City, the solution to the problems of the people of our planet. Senator Booker should live up to the democratic-sounding sayings he is famous for. Forest Whitaker should show he really believes in the positive-sounding tweets from his account. The people need to know that there is an answer and that the Illuminati types have made Brick City work for them. Then they withheld it from and even turned it against our citizens by stealing it from its author, E. Adam Jackson.
So I also released a song: “Cory Booker, Where’s My Motherlovin Money?” (see above). I’m spreading the word through every means necessary to battle those criminal copyright conspirators so that that citizens worldwide and students everywhere can see if the United States government practices justice or genocide in this case. I’m fighting to give the masses Brick City as the solution to local, national, and international problems. I’m also battling the corporate political elites through the official case I’m again making to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. I expect the Court to protect me under the copyright laws of our nation and I hope they will award me triple damages to warn other corporate political powerhouses from strong-arming other artist’s work.
Only through constant struggle of our citizens and our representatives will our society be improved for the people. Only through dedicated action will the Age of Aquarius be ushered into being. And only through non-stop commitment will the radical revolution called for by Dr. King be realized. Brick City is a vehicle for the uplift of the masses and the battle for the money they owe us continues.
