A bootleg recording is an audio and/or video recording of a performance that was not officially released by the artist, or under other legal authority. The process of making and distributing such recordings is known as bootlegging. A great many such recordings are simply copied and traded among fans of the artist without financial exchange, but some bootleggers are able to sell these rarities for profit, sometimes by adding professional-quality sound engineering and packaging to the raw material.
Bootlegs can consist of recordings of live performances, or material created in private or professional recording sessions. Changing technologies have had a great impact on the recording, distribution, and varying profitability of the underground industry.
Although distinct from unauthorized copying (“piracy”) and counterfeiting, as it involves material which has never been offered for commercial release, bootlegging is considered infringement in many jurisdictions. The copyrights for the song and the right to authorize recordings often reside with the artist, according to several international copyright treaties. The recording, trading and sale of bootlegs continues to thrive, however, even as artists and record companies attempt to provide “authorized” alternatives to satisfy the demand.

Does anyone have a full rip of Jeder Lacht from the 1994 8-track motor demo? There are NONE on the internet (apart from the 1:46 incomplete rip, and the 3:30 FAKE looped shit). Any help would be STRONGLY appreciated. I am willing to buy, will not leak.
“Battery – A tribute to Rammstein” is not a bootleg its a cover album like “Mein Herz Brennt Song Cycle” by Torsten Rasch or “Seemann” By Nina Hagen feat. Apocalyptica and ur also missing the bootleg “Rammstein? Knaack Club” its live at Knaack Club (2000)in Germany they are the live demo versions of the songs from mutter before they were released.
What they year?
I have about half of these, i’m missing some of the live ones…O.o; if your interested, say something, maybe i can help. I have Jeder Lacht (full) and also Biest(super rare and super good) but it’s the worst quality ever, i have das speil mit dem feuer, Brachiale Gewalt, muttertag, and i think i have kein engel and totes fleisch but i’d have to check, i have a few of the tatu & rammstein songs, and hallo hallo.
