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 signed up for the newsletter January 2013, when I ordered the Video Collection, so apparently they had no news to share since, and maybe the merchandising mails are only sent to LIFAD-members?

    The different fan-sites are much more active, so I stay in touch that way, and participate most actively here

    • ^I think this is the last one:

      http://newsletter.rammstein.de/2014-02_Boots/#english

      This is the English content of this newsletter, it uses to have both, first in German and below in English. Maybe it went to Spam folder.

          • Pff, the problem here is that there are only 6-7 people here loyal enough to post on a quite regular basis. Many newbies come, but hardly any make it upto 10 posts.. I don't care to greet them anymore, I know their future.

            That's why I don't care about some of the old posters here. You know who I mean, those that were once very active here and now they drop by every few months, make a few posts while the usuals on this board tell how incredibly great it is they are back, so wonderfull. You know why it's been long since they returned? Because they don't care, that is all. I don't judge them or even frown upon them, I just won't thank them for making the smallest effort ever. I'd only contribute to their pseudo-legend status they just received by going away after being a regular.

            Sich mit dem Meer verbindet
            Dort wollt' ich auf dich warten
            Auf das du mich dort findest

                Some of the "newbies" come to stay, and you never now who they'll be, when you realise they are here since a long time, this is the case of "our roses" both are members since 2013. I'm here since this new version of the forum was created (June 2011), Curiously I'm the third one xD and the ones before are the admins.

                Life changes continuously and what's important today is not tomorrow, they continue visiting from time to time and I like seeing them, others hadn't come back again and won't do it, others visit but don't post, maybe they'll come back or not, it's a pity and not in my hands, I can't go back, we had a lot of fun here and probably we'll have more in the future, when the band will give us more news this will be more active. I just enjoy the moment

                  I sent the three letters to Germany, the moment I got the cards in Spain I can send one to you. I don't think they can change the IRC for the minimum postage to the USA, that's why I didn't ask you your address.
                  And in less than a month, they arrive....

                      • There is nothing in the BF sale i really want, but since my mother just gave my sister and me a rather big X-mas gift i decided to splurge and buy not one buy two t-shirts for myself for X-mas:

                        and this one


                        Can hardly wait for them to arrive

                        • ^Nice! They look soooo comfy! I am avoiding looking at the shop right now, because I know there are things I want, and I don't need to see if they are on sale or how much they cost. I am very happy with my hoodie and my hat, so that will have to do for now

                            • Oh man. New shop items.

                              Ok really? Rammstein wine flavor gummies? That's just silly.

                              Comment


                              • ^ They are quite good, but I wouldn't buy them. There were a bag with my t-shirt (the long-sleeved were out of stock, so I only got the short-sleeved - I'm wearing it right now)
