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.

    • ^Your right, since it is a documentary they should tell the whole story. Many American bands have a hard time selling out small venues, so what happened to Rammstein in 2012 is hardly a failure I think. It is however very low compared to the usual european "Rammstein-standard" of ticket sale.

      Still just a little epilogue were they tell what they thought about the tour would be nice. Unless of course, they are saving that material for a MIG-tour documentary for the Bercy DVD.

      Comment


      • ^Possible, but I don't think there is going to be yet another documentary. We will probably get the Bercy concert released, but I don't believe they will release a second documentary.

        • ^See, this is what makes me so curious. In the past years I always thought that since the Bercy concert was so gigantic and was filmed in an insane manner (24 cameras, 2 nights, Jonas Åkerlund in charge), they would push that forward as their main live DVD product. The New York/Montreal material was just going to be bonus on a second disc or something.

          But now that they are releasing "Rammstein in Amerika" as this huge "follow their entire career"-like documantery that even gets a short theatrical run, it seems that they are betting on this one instead. This suprises me. But then, what's going to be the "hook" with the Bercy DVD. Another documentary seems repetitive. The only thing I can think of for the moment is that they will release some sort of "Live compilation" with performances from different stages of their career, and the Bercy concert will then be the "main" part of the DVD. This would make sense since the MIG tour after all was a "Best Of"-tour.

          • ^RiA's hook is that it will focus on their journey to North America and includes the MSG show to spice things up. Bercy's hook will probably be the "most epic Ramm-show eva".

            • ^And getting Jonas Åkerlund for a music video is one thing......getting him to do an entire 2 hour concertmovie for you is something completely different. That will also be a selling point I guess.

              Comment


              • ^I don't like the videoclips Ackerlund created for Rammstein, but I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for a live DVD.

                • That depends, what do you dislike about Åkerlund? The settings, humor, mood and style he puts Rammstein into in his videos, or his shooting and editing style? Because this time he has probably only concert-material to work with.

                  Comment


                  • ^Everything.

                    • Haha, well in that case we can only hope for the best.

                      I do however suspect that he is not doing a linear concertmovie in where he just puts sound and picture together. According to the camera-team they used expensive slow-motion cameras and a few pictures show him doing some back-up shots during the rehearsel before the show:


                      So I guess he is up to something ambitious. If it was just a simple concertmovie, I don't think he would take the job.

                      • Having been at one of the 2012 American shows, I can tell you it was a packed stadium and absolutely amazing.

Therefore, it should focus on being accurate and showcase the complete story, rather than focusing on constructing a compeling narrative that conviniently stops at the peak. Given that they had a whole crew of reporters following them around in 2012, I think it is bullshit that they do not include that period in the documentary.
                          A documentary is not nessacary by definition objective and all inclusive. It's slanted to the story-teller's point of view. So if they wish to end at a high, then it's the decision of the documentarist, even though we (the fan-base) want more.

                          Comment


                          • ^Then the documentarist is being biased, and so is the documentary. But then again, having being created by the band, it is not surprising.
