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.

    That would truly be devastating! If that's the case, I hope he will at least do this years summer tour.

    But honestly, I think it has a much more simple explanation. Without analyzing the things he said too much, I felt that he stressed a lot during the "Silent so long" interviews that Rammstein was a very isolated band that is very unique in it's own way, however Emigrate is much more open and collaborative. Because of that, I think he feels that he alone doesn't really represent Rammstein, and because the nature of this collaboration is much closer to Emigrate, he chose to only state "RZK from Emigrate" during the promo clip.

      Wow this really has become a thread of wild fantasies, trying to masquerade as half-truths.

        That is what I understood

        Edit (I misunderstood the previous post, after watching the video): He is promoting Emigrate, everybody knows Rammstein.

        No.

          I doubt it, they have a lot of festivals planned this summer, and some of the tickets are already sold, I really doubt he'd quit the band at this time, especially when they are allegedly started working on the new album.

              Usually whatever side Snake is one, I'm on the other, but this alarms me as well, for the same reason Snake said. It strikes me as very odd that he doesn't mention Rammstein at all, and that's a bit weird at the moment in which he's coincidentally selling some of hs Rammstein gear. It could indeed be that he wants to be recognized first as the singer from Emigrate, but that's a lost cause. That's like Slash or Dave Grohl selling millions, but everyone refers to them as those guys who used to be in Guns N' Roses and Nirvana over 20 years ago. Maybe he's focussing on Emigrate now because his promised new album is finally coming up? Maybe he wants to throw it in quickly before the whole Rammstein jungle breaks loose again?

                Well, maybe he wants his project to be that noticed that he didn't even mention Rammstein?
                Also, we didn't hear any news from Emigrate for a too long time, what they have done till now, at least from what they posted on the Facebook page is recording the drums, I really hope they had some progress since then, cause honestly I really want to hear this album, there was one song on the Vlogs he posted on the Emigrate site sounded so pretty.

                    Considering the huge failure that SSL was (both comercially and creatively), I think RZK should think twice before releasing a third Emigrate album. He should also accept that Emigrate will never take off. For better or worse, whether he likes it or not, Rammstein is what will bring him recognition and, more importantly, food to his table.
                    "Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich? It would appear that eternal happiness is better, but this is really not so! 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, they are a Fan page, I was talking about the official one.
                      I am skeptical about it, fan pages tend to say what people want to hear, unless they actually provided proof.
                      So...did they provide any proof of that?

                        They just said "they have sources"... Anyway, he'd better not announce things if he's not sure he can do them

                            Ehhh, I am not sure about that, I'd like to see some proof that the album is finished.
                            They could have at least posted something about the album's status, but nothing, and it has been almost a year since we have heard anything about it.

                                Here’s a quick update. We just finished recording drums for SSL II. Mikko flew in from Australia where he was on tour with Apocalyptica. This guy is an ANIMAL on drums and there is no higher compliment than that. He was able to bang out 8 tracks in 2 days like a champ. Much respect!
                                The atmosphere in the studio is very relaxed and free from frustration… I’m quite enjoying myself as I haven’t had one panic attack yet. Now that the drums are there I have set up my amps and recording chain to lay down the guitars. I don’t have the luxury this time to spend two months on it which is probably good since last time I ended up chasing the dragon (a.k.a. sound that doesn’t exist).
                                Ok, let’s all get back to work and I wish everybody some sunny days. We deserve it!

                                Maybe he didn't have enough time... and after they couldn't meet.
