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.

  • Christian Flake Lorenz

    Name: Christian Lorenz
    Date of birth: 16th November 1966
    Place of birth: Berlin, Germany
    Height: 1,93 m
    Weight: 73 kg
    Color of eyes: Blue
    Natural hair color: Brown
    Distinguishing marks: wears glasses
    Place in group: Keyboard
    Usual place on scene: On the bottom, on the right
    Previous group: Feeling B

    Very little is known about his family background. Apparently, he has an older brother, as well as rumours that he was adopted into the Lorenz family.

    He played with the band Feeling B with Paul Landers for 10 years. Flake was the last member to join Rammstein, as originally he did not want to join because he thought it would be boring. Lorenz learnt the piano after being given one for his 15th birthday. During the early years of Feeling B, he lived with Paul Landers, selling homemade jackets on the black market

    Flake was arrested in 1999, along with Till Lindemann after engaging in simulated sodomy with an alcohol squirting dildo. They were charged with lewd and lascivious behaviour. During a concert in sweden, in 2005, Flake ran into Till with the the segway he rides during the performance of Amerika, damging his knee and causing concerts in Asia to be cancelled.

    Flake, an atheist, is opposed to religion. He is quoted to have said, “I disapprove of religions which are made into rigid institutions. I also think that religious fanaticism and missionary work are dangerous.” Flake seems to dislike America and most of American culture. He calls it a “sick nation with no culture.” He likes the net (but is no longer able to access it from home), Poland, and Polish food. He despises McDonalds.

    Flake has been divorced once, and has 3 children, one of which is a girl called Annie. His current marital status is not known as there is very little information on his personal life.

    He is said to be very serious offstage, but very funny onstage. He likes to listen to Einstürzende Neubauten, Die ärzte, Element of Crime, Coldplay, Placebo, Johnny Cash, PJ Harvey, System of a Down, Ministry, Prodigy and once remarked that he would’ve liked to have been the sixth Rolling Stone. He has a Mercedes and is involved in vintage car hire business.
    Christian Lorenz commonly goes by the nicknames “Flake” (pronounced as “Flock’-uh” in German) and “Doktor.” Doktor came about because at one point he wanted to be a surgeon. As for Flake, the reason he is called this is unknown. He says that people began calling him Flake at a young age and it just stuck.
