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.

  • Richard selling his instruments

    Did you guys hear that Richard is selling his guitars?
    It seems like he really needs this money as he is selling the most important guitar, which started it all, the one he used recording Herzeleid and while touring.
    Here's some more details:

    I saw it. I don't know if he needs the money, maybe he is just not very sentimental?

      ^That's what I thought. Maybe he simply doesn't have much of a sense for nostalgia. If I was in his position though, I would never sell the guitar which followed me during the earliest days of my career. But then again, maybe it simply doesn't mean much for him.

        While I agree it is odd that he is selling this gear, I can't imagine RZK going broke and miserable to the point of needing to do it. Evne if he is indeed running out of money, he will always have Rammstein, or even the music industry to fall back to.

          I can't imagine it as well, he may sell his gear since he's not using it anymore.
          But selling the Esp 901?? The guitar that started it all and pretty much reached the level of being a symbol? It's really odd.
          Maybe he needs this money for a treatment for someone in his family or himself even, yet I really hope it's not true.

            The man seems to sell lots of guitars... Maybe he just had too much of them anyways, like a passion or obsession that got out of hand or so?

              Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It may even just be that he knows how fans get about stuff and decided to share some of that history of the band with people.

              You our can only play one guitar at a time anyway.

                I don't know, it is pretty weird that he would sell this guitar.
                This is the kind of guitar you should usually hang on your room's wall, and look at it and being filled with nostalgia, and realizing that this guitar started everything up.

                  ^Or maybe it is a sign tgat he is really feeling fed up of Rammstein? HOTEI even bills him as being from Emigrate.

                    I remember some years back Mike Oldfield (a figure from history kids), sold all his guitars as he decided he was going totally digital and he then spent the next several years trying to buy them back.

                      You could be right. In "In Amerika" at the interview taped in Central Park he is wearing an Emigrate-ring, not a Rammstein-ring ;-)

                        ^If I am right, I think it would do him well if Rammstein actually took a 10 year break, and he tried to make a career only with Emigrate. He would either finally get the career he craves or get a serious reality-check.

                            I'm going to go with reality check.

                              I don't think he wants to be out of Rammstein, he loves the success they have, and in the interviews when he talks about touring with Rammstein he seems to have fun, however when he talks about going back to studio... he sings a different tune

                              With Emigrate he is really far from Rammstein's success, and it's better if he does not compare his band with Lindemann.
