Iron Maiden mahnt Fans ab

Wie übel ist das denn?

Mal ehrlich, die Aussage dass Iron Maiden bei der Verfelgung draufzahlt ist doch gelogen. Wenn ich mich hinsetze Ebay und Hood durchsuche und bei einem Fund den Seitenbetreiber anschreibe mir die Daten rauzurücken und dann einen Standardbrieg loszuschicken für den ich 100 Euro bekomme, ist das ein lukratives Geschäft.

Wenn Iron Maiden wirklich draufzahlt frage ich mich warum sie es dann nciht so gemacht haben:
Jeder der altes "illegales" Material einsendet bekommt ein T-Shirt oder irgendwas aus dem Maiden Shop.
Da würden beide Seiten profitieren.

Ich mag die Musik, aber das hier stinkt!
Sorry about my bad english, but the good one is on vacation!

I think this discussion should be in english.. :)

For all non-german readers: Iron Maiden ordered a german organisation to fine persons/institutions who sell non-licenced IM products, such as bootlegs.

Madness, IMO...

they do so under the argument that IM doesn't want poor quality to be sold under their name.

The dumb thing is that most of these bootlegs were sold in big stores. But these professional sellers are not sued. :?

I think IM have all the right to do that. Anyone who's making money out of other people's work without paying royalties is a criminal.

"Nicht die Band hat uns beauftragt, sondern das Management bzw. die Geschäftsführung der IMH."
it's always the stupid management... but anyway, buying such CDs is like downloading mp3s. It's their own fault if people choose to buy bad-quality tracks on CD instead of downloading them via torrent :lol: imo. And btw, I buy original CDs when I like them! lol

you don't realize that the stores or the one who sell these things to the stores are making money and not the fan who is selling a bad quality-cd he bought at one of these storesand prolly loosing money doing it, don't you?
i see it your way if someone sells bootlegs he made by himself, so that he is making money, but what some lawyers do there is just making money for themselves.
YEE-HAW MOTHERFUCKER!

And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which
I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
it’s a very very...

...Mad world
