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: or, 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

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:


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 (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.

      I almost forget, Portuguese?
      I don't think German poetry can be properly translated to any of those languages without something getting lost.

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."

      • Of course something is lost in each translation, but with English and Spanish he can review it. And probably Russian too

          Yeah, I saw that...not quite the same, you are right. We will see...have to figure out the mortgage before I can really spend anything on fun stuff though.


          • Wow!!!!!

            Only for LIFAD members, it's available a limited edition of 100 books, of ”DIE GEDICHTE - MESSER / IN STILLEN NÄCHTEN”, hand signed

            • There is also a LIFAD offer for Flake's book, but I cannot see how that offer differs from the offer at the publishers, they also offer the pre-ordered books to be signed and numbered?

              Edit: And it seems like that offer is now gone from the Rammshop, perhaps they realised there were no difference

              • It's still there,

                I think it's a guarantee for LiFAD members, just like with gigs, but it's the same.


                • Strange, when I just checked to see if there were any difference it didn't appear? Anyway, I'll be getting it direct from the publisher


                  • Because, it's below in Upcoming Products. Scroll down


                    • I'm surprised, Till's book is still available


                      • I think a lot of people already have the two books individually, but I've found they are not too quick to take items off when they are sold out. I fear lots of people will be disappointed when ordering and then later will be told it's no longer in stock.

                        If you want to be one of the 100 I think you shouldn't wait to order, but do it NOW.

                          I think last time in a few minutes it wasn't available. I have to check it


                          • Mmm I don't know

                            For LIFAD members: Today the first 100 LIFAD orders for the book, get a copy originally signed by Till! The announce was accompanied by a Till's photo signing them, of course those 100 disappeared.
                            This time is different, there's a special link:

                            And in the order it's written "hand signed"

                            We'll see


                            • Let's hope they haven't already got 2000 orders and will have to say no to 1900, let us know how you get on


                              • ^Then it would be their fault, the shop should only sell 100 books, once they sell the number 100, the in cart button shouldn't be available. And it should say SOLD OUT. Or even better the product should disappear.

                                If they send 2000 confirmation orders emails, Till will be very busy. xD

                                I wonder how many LIFAD members they've got.
