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.

  • ^I don't think RZK would have talked so much about them and so specific about the content, if he weren't confident that they had material worth releasing. After all, they have had some years to view the material and discard it, if it were beneath par.

    • The material no doubt its worth releasing, but after the crime they did with Recuenco's video I expect anything.

        I didn't like his video. It lacked punch, but the story line were good.

        Comment


        • ^The problem with Recuenco's video was that it was a trailer for a broader story instead of being a short and succint story by itself (as is the case with so many videos from the band).

          And if we agree that they are ought to have material worth releasing, them they are probably fucking with us.

          • I love the video, anyway the mix between his images and Zoran's was a complete disaster. I would have prefered a complete new video.

            • I'll wait untill I see the video before I say it was a lesser idea than a concert. If it's well done it just might very well be better than a DVD, we can't know yet. They don't have to create an inflation of Ramm-DVD's either. It puzzels me however why it took so long for these things. They might've saved it for a quieter moment in their career like now.

                I also think it would have been a better outcome, but I guess they didn't want to waste the investment they made on Recuenco.

                • I wish they would release something. I'm kind of sick of waiting.

                  Comment


                  • Appearantly RZK confirmed everything we have been discussing in a recent interview: Concert from MSG, concert from Bercy, and the documentary. He also mentioned that the MSG concert is set to be released in March.

                    However, even if is RZK saying all of this, I will only beleive it when an official announcement is made, and I abstain from updating the site or the facebook page with this interview. This is dragging already for so long that I don't see any point in talking about this outside of this thread. Besides, Rammstein is notorious for being constantly changing plans and schedule. Take all of this with a grain of salt, even if it is coming from RZK.

                    Here it is the interview, in German, minute 1.30 :

                    • He actually says: In March approximately (ungefähr), so I'll believe it when I see it

                      Comment


                      • Either way, it's more news and better news, and hopefully the mothership will post something official soon!

                        Comment


                        • approximately?

                          After Emigrate's releases delays, I will sit and wait without celebrating.

                          • Well he said March, just not which year
