oh!

nothing to do?

really?

are you serious?

so tell me, who OWNS this nonsense that presents itself to the world as guns n' roses?

who CALLS THE SHOTS in this nonsense?

let me connect A to B for you:

it is Axl Rose calling the shots on everything that involves this nonsense that presents itself to the world as guns n' roses since at least 1996

if these nonsense takedowns are happening on youtube, ebay, lyrics sites, wherever, it is because axl rose WANTS IT to happen or ALLOWS IT to happen

and that is why i love, i really love when people come here in this forum to say that "Axl Rose has a vision for GNR"

yeah right

i couldn't have said better

He does, it involves clearing off his various mortgages and the financing of his sports cars, Audemars watches and Halloween parties.

Different sites have different methods of processing claims. Metro is maybe the easiest, so its first. Maybe Metro is more like YT and just removes everything thats claimed without investigation? Hopefully others are more rigorous and investigate claims.

I just had an idea: Someone start a lyric site. Wait for the claim from bagel boy, then proceed with due diligence and contact the actual copy holders to ask if bagel is working on their behalf?

Sharing fake bootlegs could also be hilarious. Just imagine forcing them to download ~1GB over and over, just to find that just about all them contains something ridiculous.

I don't know this site, but you can still just google it, no big deal. The fun will start when the main google page tells you to fuck off in this regard...!

It would take 2-3 minutes tops to start a Wix/similar site and paste a few sets of lyrics on it. I'd do it if I cared enough, but I don't. :lol:

This has got to the point where these actions must almost certainly be sanctioned by Team Brazil or the band's label. How a band, that mostly survived on fan loyalty and contributions during its stagnant periods, can be okay with this is beyond me.

And the band mostly survived thanks the Internet too.

KISS are terrible for it but it wouldn't suprise me as a stunt Axl would try n pull

It might well be a another party involved in this. MetallicA have had to get involved numerous times as their legal team have read the riot act over all sorts of ‘copyright infringement’. One of them related to a lipstick called MetallicA for example!

Prince did something similar to the point he was suing fans for posting bootlegs. I respect copyright law, but without fans, you're nothing and with that fandom comes a culture of sharing. It generates and maintains a buzz and interest. I have recordings of Axl the day Use Your Illusion came out saying "hey, if you can't afford it, steal it". I question how involved the band is with this. Feels like overreaching management. 

That’s what I was saying above - it smacks of over-zealous legal representation.

Fernando claimed he wasn't aware of it a while back. Designing useless merchandise will do that to a person I suppose. I'm sure Beta has some involvement in this.

Looks like they are hitting Twitter today, one account I follow had several videos removed for copyright claims.  🤬

Rick Jones. 😡 yesterday he shared a video of the warm up for the Welcome to the Jungle. Truly great video.

When are whoever is behind the takedowns going to realize that they're doing no favors for GnR?

I've said for a long time that it is Guns/management doing all of the take downs.

I didn't realise Twitter was one of alfreds targets, I guess he's expanding.

I really don't think the band themselves are even aware of the takedowns, or the magnitude of it
