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 blamed for school shooting by newspaper

    http://www.nme.com/news/rammstein--2...news-rammstein

    German industrial metallers Rammstein have been implicated in a recent high-school shooting in Baltimore by the New York Daily News, who revealed that the perpetrator was a fan of the band.

    Bobby Gladden, who is 15 years old, has been arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault for critically wounding a classmate with a gun blast on Tuesday (August 28). He is currently being held on remand.

    According to a report in the paper, Gladden is described as "a misfit obsessed with a German metal band and the murderous Charles Manson Family." They researched the information from the teenager's Facebook page, which featured a picture of Rammstein singer Till Lindemann.

    During the assault, Gladden fired two shots, with one bullet critically injuring 17-year old Daniel Borowy, who is currently in hospital with a bullet in his back. Gladden was then restrained by school guidance counselor Jesse Wasmer until police arrived to arrest him.

    Gladden's parents have issued a statement via a relative about the shooting, saying: "We are horrified. We did not see this coming and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and the victim's family."

    Rammstein have not commented on the story.


    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...sEnabled=false <- The article in question

    And the guy's Facebook page -> https://www.facebook.com/bobby.gladden.14

    Seriously, what bullshit. He has a single picture of Till on his Facebook page, and then without any investigation into his mental well-being at all, he's "obssesed" and Rammstein get the blame. And as this is in America, the people blaming Rammstein are probabaly the same people advocating near-unrestricted access to guns that, y'know, unlike music, can actually physically kill people. Unless being stabbed to death with a CD cover is a lethal hazard now.

          Even if they make guns illegal, the people who want them will still get guns. People are quick to judge bands

            I'm not saying that all guns should be illegal entirely, I just think that in America there is just a complete lack of proper regulations in who can buy guns.

              Around me most people who buy guns do not do it legally, they buy it like coke or heroin. Stricter regulations won't help because many who commit gun crimes don't have a gun permit. The Colorado kid might have had his gun legally, but if he wasn't given it I am sure he would have gotten them anyway. I know where to get illegal guns and drugs. I also live in a city that outranks NYC and Chicago in certain crimes. I go to places that most white people are afraid to go to. So many US cities are dying and have turned into ghettos by hardcore hoodlums, and the regular peeps get stuck in the middle. My friends tell me I'm a little bit of a hoodlum.

                  It's crazy that some violent texts can be seen as a legit cause for people to go perform cruelties in reality. The agressors might see a legitimation for their feelings in bands like Rammstein, but that doesn't make their reaction good, logic or Rammstein's music dangerous. Those people will find a reason for their crimes anyway, with or without violent lyrics.

                    I bet that the kid didn't even know what Rammstein sings about

After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing. Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness."

                              Well excuse me for not having read about every school shooting in the world. You may be right.
