RAMMSTEIN Deny Having Filed Lawsuit Against Fan Site

German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN have issued a statement denying reports that they have filed a lawsuit against top German RAMMSTEIN fan site, RammsteinFan.de, over allegations that the site's owners are capitalizing on the band's name. The group's statement reads as follows:

"It has been posted in various forums and websites that the domain owner and webmaster of Rammsteinfan.de is being sued by RAMMSTEIN and its management. Many sites even mention a 14-page notice a high monetary claim for damages.

"The following facts are correct:

"The domain owner and webmaster of Rammsteinfan.de simply received a 3-page warning, in which he was asked, among other things, to cease the distribution of audio recordings and images, as well as using these for the advertisement of services, products, etc. The remaining three pages of the letter consisted only of a statement of cessation that he is supposed to send back.

"Because the repeated demands of the management were only partially or occasionally met, the management saw itself forced to give its demands more weight with a letter from their lawyer."
