FORUM RULES ABOUT WEB-BASED LINKS TO MUSIC AND VIDEO'S

Based on latest discussions on this forum, and studiing copyright laws, it is necessary to state out new forum mandatory rules, effective immediately, so, here we are.

LINKS TO MUSIC & VIDEOS: what is legal/what is not.
NEW RULES in the forum state:

From now on in our forum users shal NOT POST TOPICS THAT containin the following :
• Requests for or links to MP3s, music videos, or other files of questionable legality
• Bootlegs

So, please do not POST A LINK TO music or videos which does not directly originate from an officially legal site.

An OFFICIALLY LEGAL SITE is: rammstein.com or rammstein.de, universal music, a legitimate music site like MTV or VIVA. The links must be direct and linked only to the approved site. Any links which have copied and transferred the music or videos from an official legal site to ANYWHERE else are NOT OFFICIAL.

• Do not ASK FOR A LINK to music or videos. If there is a legal site for either listening or viewing, xTERNAL will provide the information in the NEWS section of www.RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE.com.

WHAT YOU CAN DO in the forums: You can DISCUSS a new song or a new video.

WHAT YOU CANNOT DO in the forums: provide illegal links or ask for links, give directions of any kind as to where something might be found (examples: file-sharing, other fansites, etc.). Screen caps will be allowed (within reason) AFTER a video has been made available through an OFFICIAL LEGAL LINK. Fan remixes of songs will be allowed (within reason) after the song has been officially released.

The above restrictions are necessary not because we are being “damn babies” or “. The reason is simply that RAMMSTEIN-EUROPE has made the decision to not be a facilitator of illegal activities involving copyrighted material. The reason for that is also clear. Rammstein’s Management has shown aggressive behaviour in combating copyright infringement.

Anyone who violates the spirit of the aforementioned expansion/explanation of what the RULES mean here as applied to music and videos (and this also includes the "making of videos") will meet up with one of the following consequences:

POST BLOCKED, LINK ERASED AND WORSE.... BANNED IF NECESSARY.

If you have ANY questions about what may or may not be acceptable here, you can always PM a Moderator and ask first before posting something that might get you in trouble here.

•any links to www.youtube.com (or other sharing sites of a similar nature)are generally not allowed.
While some videos like fan made items or spoof animations are allowed, we do not allow linking to youtube. Oftentimes there is/are illegal videos of Rammstein performances to the side of the linked videos. Actual Rammstein Videos which are very illegal to be hosted by that site - therefore we cannot allow links to youtube to be allowed.

So, links to youtube are now allowed - ONLY IF it is a fanmade video by you, and does not contain bootleg footage or footage of live performances or released performances. Stills from photos found on the net are OK. A montage is OK. Clips of released footage are NOT OK.

Please try to understand that sometimes while we may allow a certain individuals fanmade videos, and deny another persons it is usually because the content in it could get the forums in trouble.

Also if some individuals post their fanmade video and it turns out to be bootleg footage that they filmed themselves at a concert and consider that "fanmade" - then we will have to reverse the ruling on allowing fanmade videos PERIOD!

Here is an update on what is considered "fanmade".
Fanmade is fanmade. You did it yourself. Like cut and paste. You creatd everything yourself. No footage filmed by someone else no clips. Still images are OK.
For example:
If you go out and find 6 banana slugs in the yard, dress them up in LAB outfits, and put the skinniest one in a paper boat and play the music to SEEMANN on a kazoo. That is fanmade.

If you have a coverband and you do your own video or you have footage of YOUR band's performance. That is fanmade.

If you have images that you sketched of how you think the video for a song should have been and you put it to music - I think we can allow that.

Use your creativity.

IF YOU SEE VIOLATION OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, REPORT IT BY USING THE EXCLAMATION MARK IN THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF RELEVANT POST.

    Rammstein against resellers

    Rammstein has published in their web page, a post warning posible problems if you buy tickets to resellers. The note is in german.
    Here is the link:
    http://www.rammstein.de/news/aufruf/

    Google Translation...

    CALL
    Due to the ever more pervasive commercial trade with Rammstein tickets at inflated prices, let us now turn directly to you. There are a number of commercial traders who want to enrich themselves at your expense. The band Rammstein would like this activity, so far it is possible to stop it. We do not agree, that fans of the live experience is made more difficult because large retailers buy crafty cards and these stocks at vastly inflated prices (some 200 - 600% above the original price) resell.
    To prevent this activity, we need YOUR help!
    You can thus support us:
    Please report to us all continue to resellers, large amounts of maps on the Web. Should you purchase tickets from resellers already have (eg through auction houses or ticket exchanges), it helps us greatly if you apply yourself directly to us with problems. Write to us via email ([email protected]) your experience and / or problems with the purchase of such tickets. We will investigate all allegations and try to help where we can. Each is valuable and brings us a step further.
    At this point, once again an urgent note to all fans: Those who buy tickets on commercial resellers Rammstein is in danger to get to the concert on their premises. The tickets are personalized. Request re-personalization of commercial traders are not met. We will check every ticket and prevent discrepancies in the admission to the concert.
    Please remember also that invalid tickets from unauthorized traders are put into circulation and resold.
    You should be so unsure if your ticket is valid, talk please email us. It could happen otherwise, that you pay a lot of money for tickets and be dismissed from the hall door.

    I've been a victim of one and I must say it's the last resort to someone who would really love to see them even if it would cost more.

    What these people would do is they would buy tons of tickets so they will be the one to sell it for sky rocketing prices. I've been a victim before!!!

    funny enough, I've seen ad-banners here for Viagogo - a firm notorious here in DK for reselling tickets at higher prices for concert that weren't even sold out.
    Maybe another advertiser here would be appropriate

    When I read this news at first (obviously I read it over 6 times that I understood it right) and now I started to think what External said on the first page and THEN I started to think things what I thought when the tickets came to sell. I was really amazed why the hell the ticket were so cheap? Thinking of that it's going to be the best of tour, it will be bigger than the old tour etc etc. Because I was sure that I need to pay over 100€ to get the floorticket to the consert in Helsinki... But no. And it's great that some band have put a news out about that they will do something for those resellers... But I guess that it won't work. Pilgrim have to think all over again.
