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.

  • It wasn't the expectations that made me dislike this DVD, nor the CG effects. It's the fact that I can't enjoy it when the images constantly shift. I like music and literature because I can "empathize" with the feelings and the moods. But when I don't get a chance of really observing the things, it just doesn't work for me. That's why I do like Mutter in this film, because it has many bits and images that last more than 2 seconds to watch. The same for Mann gegen Mann. But with the rest, as far as I have seen it, I didn't enjoy it, I felt as if I was quickly scrolling through some Rammstein footage, not taking the time to have a proper look. As the music doesn't constantly shift, I reckoned I could enjoy it and therefore I just bought the CD.
    And to make it even worse: you don't only get the see things very swiftly, it's also really really dark to see anything at all. I said it often: this tour they made their stage so dark that for me mostly only the naked eye can really fully observe what happens in the shadows. Many youtube vids were however very good, but Akerlund embraced the darkness and even increased it frequently.

      A lot of people seem to have been provoked, but I agree: I don't find it provocative, but I like it.

      • I just realised that I loathe this DVD even more that I do LIFAD. In hindsight, LIFAD only had 3 trully horrible songs. RP is entirely comprised by shit editing and tasteless CGI effects.

        I am absolutely not exagerating my feelings. This is the product that truly made me lose interest in this band. I am totally unable to feel excitment about anything rammstein-related now.

          • One of these days Snake will fully appreciate the awesomeness of Liebe ist für alle da , mark my words. He's becoming milder about it every time it's being mentioned. Maybe after all these years he should give it another listen and see what his thoughts are today.

            I'm not sure if the band really appreciates the film. We only briefly heard some of their remarks about it and those weren't overly excited about this product. It seems to me like a contract they committed, something they let Akerlund do, but weren't very involved in. For the previous Live DVD they were really into it, worked on it, gave interviews and even made some footage themselves.

            But one thing is sure: the press seems to love it. I read nothing but good reviews in newspapers and magazines.

            • ^My impression of LIFAD does get milder over time, but each time I think about RP I get increasingly more frustrated at it. I really had enough of feeling dissapointed by the band, and I am on the verge of just moving the fuck on. I no longer get a kick out of being the contrarian on message boards.

              • ^Weren't you happy with the MSG DVD? I really liked it, especially the performance of Sonne, which for me topped the ones on Völkerball.

                • ^I appreciated the documentary way more than the live dvd. I thought the live dvd was meh, both in terms of production and performance. They both suffer from shit editing, but RP is way worse.

                  • ^Yeah, the docu was the bees knees. Great concept, with lots of unseen footage etc. The concept, show and appearance of the band was great in that moment and very original. But the band wasn't in their best shape IMO, even from the beginning. Till blew his voice and I had the impression Richard was struggling as well. Flake did well, but used more pre-recorded material. However: Paul and especially Schneider were top-knotch, and so was Ollie. I enjoyed them very much in 2010, but in later tours, starting from 2012, they just were better.
