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.

      Nice prizes, and I know you get a discount when you shop, but I don't shop enough for it to be worth my while.I buy maybe one item for Christmas. But I have been thinking about buying a membership, if only they could make it a bit cheaper. ;-)

        You should have buy it before your order and think it was 11€ with the discounts.

          I did check with my last buy, the discount would have been 14 Euros, and the membership 25. Anyway, too late now, but if some one will give me a membership for X-mas or my b-day in May, I wont turn it down

            That awful moment when you are one of the finalists of the contest for the third prize and you don't know. I always receive an email notifying me about new messages except for today. I have lost the third prize

                Aww...did you lose the prize because they needed a response by a certain time? If that were so, you'd think they would tell you

                Sorry Maya

                  ^They did, but gmail decided it was spam, just found it. I can't understand why this one and not others they send me before, but nothing can be done.

                  It's my fault , if I had logged in LIFAD I would have seen it, but I didn't think I had a chance, i found many answers in German, imagine how as I can't speak it. I thought all the winners will be Germans.

                  Anyway 16/19 I was near. And it has been very funny, I will post some of the questions/answers in Waidmann's thread, had been very interesting and I have learnt some things.

                      How annoying, but I've seen gmail before suddenly changing what it thinks is or isn't spam

                      Yeah, but it you're used to getting an e-mail you don't do extra checks . . next time you will

                      It'll be interesting to see both questions and answers.

                        We had problems with that at work

                        I thought about logging at six, but I was tired, so I thought better later.

                        I'm not lucky for this stuff, I never win contests, raffles or similar. As it was unexpected, I'm not disappointed.

                        It'll be interesting to see both questions and answers.
                        Tomorrow when they post them, I'll add some unknown and interesting for me.

                                Hmm...I dunno, I'd have to go get a cross cookie cutter or something. I will be honest, I am not that desperate to have Rammstein toast.
