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 Nominated at “Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2012"

    I've been lazy, Rammstein posted three days ago about "Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2012″ I was going to add it to its thread but it hasn't (even is posted on Aff news). Better late than never, so here it is.

    Do you know something?



    Again Rammstein have been nominated for an award, this time Hammer Golden Gods Awards. This is the noted published by Rammstein on their official site.

    "Rammstein are nominated for the UK Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award in the category "Best Live Band"! The Awards, not to be confused with the homonymous Award from the US Revolver magazin, will be held in London on June 11th.

    You can vote for Rammstein here, provided you register yourself."
    Also nominated in the same category are Iron Maiden, Metallica, Skindred, and Watain.

    They are asking for your vote. Just do it quick

    I find it odd that they announce the Hammer Golden Gods and Not the Revolver Golden Gods.

                Metal Hammer posted Rammstein's thank you message



                Rammstein Just Sent Us Their Thankyou Message For Winning Best Live Band At The Metal Hammer Golden Gods

                So the Rammstein boys won Best Live Band at this year’s epic Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, and they’ve just emailed us a nice little thank you message for all of their fans! Cheers, lads!

                “Vielen Dank to Metal Hammer and to the readers of the magazine for this tremendous accolade. We’d love to have been there to collect the award, but rest assured, we will be returning to the UK. Metal Hammer has been a great supporter of Rammstein over the years, and that has meant a lot to us. To be honest, we weren’t sure if the UK would truly accept the band, but we now have wonderful friends and fans over there, and the last UK dates have been some of our favourite shows. Oh, and don’t play with fire… it can be dangerous!”
