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.

    Just briefly wanted to point out that Flake didn't say that, that's merely an assumption. He said they might use other methods of releasing than an album as the internet changed the market of albums. He didn't say that would mean they might release it digitally. And god, lets hope it won't turn to that.

    • ^They can always spend the rest of their careers just releasing new singles.

      • So Rammstein end their days by effectively releasing DLC......

        • ^DLC???

          • ^Downloadable content. It is a term used in the video-game industry to described additional (paid) content to a game. It is a business model that not many gamers like, and that is often abused by publishers to milk more money from buyers.

            • I hope the Rammstein democracy will give us a new álbum and they forget this idea, many people download music using "not very legal" (ehem) methods, and would never pay for DLCs, for example Spain is in the top countries of piracy, even RZK talked about it in an interview some years ago, I can't imagine how they will get more money with this, I'm Sure they will lose it, it's true that things have changed, but we will listen to it for free, why paying for it if I can have it in Spotify and there isn't anything else? Only the music, no artwork, not a special Edition ... People will create their own artwork, I think is a bad idea.

              • ^Thank you, Snake. I really hope they wont fall into that. That would really piss me off. I don't like buying singles either, but prefer albums.

                • Lifad sold quite well, and I think we can all agree that if you are a metal band and have a very strong fanbase, it normally remains a good idea the make an album.

                  • I'd rather get a few good songs as DLC than another LIFAD-like album.

                    • Yeah DLC would be alright as well.

                          - As of now, they are rehearsing together and writing music.
                          - They are considering to not release a new record, but simply write new songs which will be released in some form. Releasing complete albums "isn't what it used to be" according to Flake.
                          - Rammstein will only play festivals next year.
                          -They will probably play some new songs during the next tour.
                          - If the band isn't going to release an entire album, they might consider to keep touring with the new songs.

                          This is only an excerpt from the magazines facebook site. People who live in Berlin can buy the entire issue with the full interview. Let's hope someone in another fanclub can tell us what more he said.

                          • Hi, I really do not know much about Rammstein. But I know them to be working on metal albums. and If I'm not mistaken their latest album up by 2015 is Verlorene Liebe. Those are already available at Spotify.

                            Comment


                            • Nice job with the translation.

                              Overall, I liked the interview very much. However, if there is one piece of information that sticks out for me, it's the fact that Flake mentioned they are looking for a new "outside" producer. Doesn't this mean that this could potentially be the first Rammstein album, or collection of Rammstein songs, that are not produced by Jacob Hellner?

                              • ^I think it just mean not one in the band, because of how the question is formed. But I'm sure rumours and later confirmation as to whom will follow soonish
