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.

    But overall, I like the idea. I'd like a shirt like that (it's not a metal shirt, which is often frowned upon or unfit or so, but still related to the band). They look good as well. The prive however... Even half the price is already risky.
    And maybe someone would like one with number 8 and Maya written on it for example.....

        Leaving only the little Rammstein-logo as a sign that it's band merchandise ? There's no way one shoud spend a dime on that .

          60€ (54€)? Sure not, with their names or mine, no way.

          I prefer the Spanish one, I won't buy a soccer shirt of Rammstein, but for those who want the team, it could be ok.

            I wonder sometimes if they will ever drop their prices. There's so many things I would get if they were more reasonable! To be perfectly honest, they'd make a ton of money off me if each item didn't cost a fortune...

              ^Some items have a lower price for LIFAD members. And the membership costs 25€ per year. Compared to other oficial fanclubs, it is pretty cheap membership.

                  Never knew why becoming a Lifad-member would be worth the 25 euros. Discount on merchandise, ok, but that's got to be a lot before you regain 25 euros. Chance to attend try-outs, ok, but that chance still remains very very small. And the other special offers... Maybe if you live in Germany it's easier for tickets and some special actions, but for the rest...

                    ^You also get to pre-order tickets to a few shows before non-members. You also get access to their oficial forum, even though their interface sucks balls.

                      I will think about it. It might be worthwhile, but it basically just means I'm still paying the full cost and it more or less covers the shipping. *sigh* I will think...

                        It is worth saying that, even though their merchadising is expensive, so is the merchansiding of many other bands. And contrary to other bands, the membership for the LIFAD community is pretty cheap compared to other oficial clubs.

                          Yeah I suppose. But to be honest, I'm not interested in merch from other bands. Haven't every really been. I will probably get one when I have some money. Just need money. Maybe after my husband is working again. :P

                            Is there a significant difference between that official forum and one like this? That's the only thing that might convince me, I guess.

                              Not really. There is this myth that you can get exclusive info in the oficial forum, but in practice you can always find that info everywhere. On the other hand, their foruns tend to me much more active than this one, for instance.

                              Furthermore, there are also some contests where you can win signed items that you can take part in if you are a member.

                                I am a LIFAD member and I rarely log in or write on the forum, it's very bad designed, there are German and English sections, both are active, of course the sections similar to What's on your mind?, if you buy a lot of merchandising you can give a try, if not, maybe for their contests for members, some are interesting or for the future rehearsals....
