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.

      I think I will hold off as well. I can't afford to buy lots of stuff, as much as I'd like to, and I'm sort of past the whole all-black wardrobe thing anyway...

      I will just focus on being able to fit the super-small size hoody I already bought. :P

        ^Me too, you'll have to buy a lot of merch to "save" the fee back again, and as for the competitions - the odds are not good enough, so I'll just press on with buying the weekly lotto-ticket.

          xD

          I really don't know why I renewed mine, maybe because after all they came to Spain. I haven't bought anything except for the tickets... I like to see the stuff I buy, but I've got a list and it's not late :P

            I only hoped sometimes some band members or insiders (crew, co-operators, producers, associates, friends of the band, etc.) would be on their board. And more discussion, for example song-analyses or so. So, I'll make it home here, I suppose , not feeling much for combining forums or abandonning this one now after over 2 years.

              Abandoning us? no, no, no

              I can't talk about the German forum, but I haven't seen something like song-analyses in the English one, I will check it, i haven't read all the threads.

              Combining both would be better than leaving us

                  ^ Only members can see the page. And I still think 25€ is too much for a "lottery ticket" ;-)

                    I know, but many members don't visit LIFAD often, that's why I shared it here.

                    • Thanks for saying it is for the soccer stuff, Maya! While that would be very cool to win, the chances are probably pretty slim...

                      I need to save my $ for the Emigrate album. Whenever that happens. :P

                        It should be soon, in June. When contests include photos, it's sure I won't participate.

                          Ah, ok. I thought members got a newsletter when things like that occurred.

                          Strange enough I've signed up for the regular newsletter, but haven't received one in the year and a half since I did so? They don't really share much on their homepage, do they? ;-)

                          • That's a long time, i think you should have received something. They don't use to send a lot of stuff but Sometimes they do, maybe it goes to your spam folder, i found one there about new ítems of Rshop.
