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.

  • What will happen in 2013?

    We all have read about next year summer festivals.

    Would be awesome if they returned to South Africa. But I doubt it. Asia is confirmed by a member of the band.

    It would be amazing, I hope they continue with plan. What do you think?

    I think they are getting very lazy.

        Rammstein owes nobody anything, they can do whatever they want, when they want to. I won't complain if they do nothing at all, although it would be a pity.

        If you compare the situation to other bands with members of their age, they're still pretty active. And least they still surprise. I'm sure they will amaze me before 2013 will be through.

          Of course, but two videos are waiting, and the DVDs. They could do nothing at all, but I don't think they'll lose the opportunity of more money. Now there is many people living of that. And trying to conquer USA market indicates that they are not thinking about permanent holidays, they could have make more money here. I'm sure they want to go to south america too, they love it, Asia, Australia....

            I really hope that R+ will be visiting the big metalfestival in my town. They've been there 2 times actually, and a third time won't do any harm. But a gig at a festival is nothing compared to an arena filled with Rammstein-fans, but it will have to do i guess.

              Do you mean it's all about the money for them? Didn't know this was the Rammstein-flamers thread !

              A pause after so much touring is only natural, I guess. They were on the road again not even 6 months after their last tour ended. I mean, even Iron Maiden takes longer pauses than that and they're probably the most active band in metal history.
              + Rammstein's latest publication is about 9 months ago... It's very rare to publish 2 things in one year for a band, and nevertheless we get constant signals that we are going to get something new within the year after all. So, I see no reason to complain at all, except for one's own impatience !

                ^They toured a lot more during the Sehnsucht and Mutter tour. They once release 2 albuns almost back to back. And the only times they didn't come to the iberian peninsula were during their first tour, and this last one.

                When the mutter tour ended, they stayed away 2 years to produce reise reise, followed by a kind of short tour to promote the album. Then they released Rosenrot, and didn't do any tour for that album, staying inactive for 4 years. Then they released LIFAD, and actually worked hard during the European part of their tour. The rest of the dates were pretty far apart. Then after 6 months of the last date for LIFAD tour, they merely released a sub-pair best of, and performed a lot of dates through Europe - but not as many as in LIFAD tour. And then they wen't to america and left the iberians very disappointed.

                  It's all about money? Of course not, but they have filmed two MHB videos and the same about the gigs, they filmed 4, 2 of LIFAD and 2 of MIG . Not releasing them is throwing it to the bin. And money it's very important, each day more. They haven't visited the European countries with economical crisis, I think that should mean something. Do you disagree?

                  They deserve holidays, no doubt. But MHB could be released, they should do it ASAP.

                  Am I impatient? Sure I am

                      That's just a desire, there's no evidence. Or have you seen it?

                        No, I haven't seen it. It is just a deduction.

                            If they are indeed thinking about another record, one could figure there will be another album. At least that's what I would hope for. Another album could also mean another (perhaps the last then) world tour. I would hope they don't stay away from the US for too long, otherwise people will forget about them again. Since MIG was a success (at least financially) I am wondering what they thought about they visit here. If they had fun, there's really no reason for them not to come back. Either way, it would be at least 2 - 3 years before that would probably happen. I guess we will just have to wait and see what they're gonna do.

                              Of course I disagree to some extend as they were in Greece, Italy and Ireland in 2010, which were the worst victims of the crisis back than (Ireland was already declared bankrupt). They didn't tour those countries now, which might indeed mean something (although it could also be the country that didn't want the gig, just like Greece officially declined shows from Guns N' Roses and Metallica in 2012).
                              And I think it's logic this tour is smaller than the LIFAD one. It's after all "only" a greatest hits tour, so there's nothing new to offer. In essence it's some revival of the old glory and many bands choose to not extend something like that (like Metallica, Guns N' Roses and Iron Maiden).
