As long as your leak hasn’t come from Rick Dunsford, then yes, you can...

No. It would come from my Bladder

This is really unfortunate.  I totally understand the decision as you have to protect yourself the best you can.  What I can’t understand is the whole premise behind this.  Seeing videos of a concert and discussing the songs, concert, sound etc is not taking anything away from the band.  If Axl is on the street and a pic is talked of him, tabloids can run it.  If I’m at a concert that I paid to get in, take a video with my own phone, and post it on you tube, there shouldn’t be anything wrong with that.  The leaks are another story.  That is potentially harming the future sale of an album ( if they actually ever do one). We should be able to talk about them though.  What the GNR team is trying to do is the same thing the other liberal media outlets are doing; Control the tone and content of what people hear and see.  This allows them to put what ever spin they want and have people think the way they want them to.  It’s all pretty disgusting.   This is a band that should be celebrating all their passionate fan base, not trying to piss on them every chance they can. 

By liberal media you mean fox news? cause thats exactly how they run their business. 

News should not be a business anyway.

News in general has become about entertainment not facts.   24 hr news has become about grabbing headlines and getting ratings. The fact that 3 of 4 mainstream media channels run nothing but unsubstantiated stories and double standard editorials instead of reporting actual news.   Fox isn’t perfect either, but at least there are attempts to look at facts from both sides.

The biggest shocker here is all the amazing content from 2016/2010 being removed, and yet this monstrosity is still on the official YouTube channel

Exactly. 

Why on Earth would you want stuff like Houston 2016 available online, when people could watch this instead??

Don't really know what to say, the whole situation is just too bizarre for words.

In my 20 years of being a GNR fan I don't think I've ever understood a single decision made by the band :lol: I'm still here so I guess they've done something right to at least keep me entertained over the years, but Guns is without doubt the most dysfunctional business on the planet.... and yet they raked in $500 million or whatever on the last tour :crazy:

I must admit I've never really taken the time to fully understand what's going on with this copyright nonsense, who's doing it and who's guilty of what. But if I'm not mistaken the band isn't doing anything to prevent this, right? I belive they're doing it in an attempt to hide how terrible Axl has been these last few years. I see no other reason.

The money has already been made now all there is to do it to hide the proofs.

Are only videos from Not In This Lifetime getting removed? It sure seems like it. Or am I missing something?

Not just that. Any bootleg you post here will get deleted now, and you'll get banned on top of it. Say thank you, TB.

There are various trade organizations that act on behalf of the recording industry to enforce copyright.  They allow, for reasons that make zero sense to me, non-rights holders to file complaints or reports, which are then acted upon regardless of how the actual rights holder feels about the use of their content.  

I reiterate that the latest development is almost certainly the result of non-rights holders abusing a broken system as a means to target this forum in the hopes it gets taken down.  They're petty and sad little people who I honestly feel sorry for since they don't seem to have anything else worthwhile in their lives.

With respect to images, we're not aware of any similar organizations that act on behalf of rights holders should their be a misuse of copyright materials.  My limited knowledge on the matter is the copyright holder themselves must act on their own (or through legal representatives) to remove or restrict content owned by them that's used without their permission.

As of today we have never received any complaint or request to remove any image posted on this forum.

But I would ask that we try and be adults about this and not poke the bear by posting insulting or inflammatory memes that does not help our situation.  

We'll take it on a case by case basis.

Wouldn't it be terrible if somebody put in a claim about content on the official site. :lol:

My opinion, especially after reading site owner's last post above , about some people targeting this popular fan site, is shyt, dont post anything from you tube. Not even MTV 1980s videos of news, videos, interviews, etc. Nothing.  If you have concert vids you took, post up on your own personal social media. Others, fans,  will find it. Thanx in advance. I say those in the take down are mentally ill, lonely, obsessive,reclusive people in a fantasy world taking  down things of GnR including Meegan Hodges Instagram of concert footage.  The only people who can control what fans see are Axl, Slash, Duff and they dont care or care to have the right hired people to investigate this and stop it. So there.

I agree with your post but I don't think it would be so easy for GN'R to stop the takedowns. They could urge the label to contact platforms like Youtube and ask they to not remove any videos unless requested by the label itself. In other words, not act upon third party requests for video removals. That might work, at least for videos not taken down by the label. But then GN'R must be of the opinion that they would be better off to stop the takedowns, and I am definitely not sure Team Brazil at least understands this so their position is more 'why bother?'.

at this point, I'm actually starting to be quite happy that MoFo or whatever mental is taking down everything GNR from the internet and erasing the band's footprint from peoples' minds, leaving just KISS-level media whoreness in existence.

because that bunch of sellout clowns and their asslickers only totally deserve that.

so go ahead and let it all burn in hell.

guns n roses are an utterly tragic band. Let's face it, they only made one truly great album: their first. They could be the next rolling stones, but they threw it all away. They are passively and actively destroying their career.

But they act like they are bigger than the stones. They'll never be like the stones. The stones treat their fans well, see all the official bootlegs that they are releasing. I effectively can't keep up with their brilliant concert releases.

Sadly, nothing really changed for the better with the return of Sluff. Too bad. 

The only thing left to somewhat safe the band now would be a brillant new album released next year. Imo.

Anyone seen the video promoting next years tour with what sounds like a GnR cover band playing an original song?

Tragic, yes. 

UYI is truly great too (minus a few tracks, which taken singularly are actually still decent). The problem was a dull drummer who had NOTHING to do with the original formula. Killed and ruined the swing in so many wonderful tunes. And yes, over-production at times likely due to Axl's state of mind back then. 

As for the Stones... well, different band, different music, different attitude. Even in their prime (GNR), the comparison never even made any sense at all. 1987-GNR just utterly destroys anything the Stones ever did, IMHO.

I agree, I think a more apt comparison would be with Zeppelin.

Was it the Live Nation tweet? If so, it's gone now unfortunately. Hopefully they repost.

I've been more quiet than usual in these parts lately, so was shocked to be told about this at lunch with @alfierose today. 

 

Sorry they're being dicks Downzy. You've shouldered the burden of this forum for a long time now. Thank you for doing so, as it's not a cheap hobby and sounds as rewarding as letting a butcher cut your hair.
