Queen productions: "Give us yer money America!"
America: "Here ya go Queen Productions.  Can we see the exclusive content on the Official Queen Website on the World Wide Web please?"
Queen productions: "Sod off. We've got yer money now."

That is VERY mean of QPL.
Keep watching the download sites folks - someone is bound to upload the videos for all to see for free (and companies wonder why people download stuff instead of buying it....)

I get the same message in Canada.

But I also heard that it won't be activated until Monday.  Is that true?  If so, then give it a try then.

The North American buyers could always get their UK friends to download for them.  However I am not sure whether they have copyright protection though (like the Nokia Comes With Music type of restrictions).

In a word, Copyright Protection is bunkum.  There is always a way of circumventing these things.

Fuck THAT. And JUST when I was finally thinking about getting the vinyl set so I could get the online access...!

Fuck you, QPL & EMI.

A question about this:-

Can you guys in the US view all the online streaming videos in the media section at QueenOnline?  If so, then how can you not be allowed to view these clips?!?   I think it's outrageous and disgusting, especially as a lot of people will be buying the A4 book or vinyl versions especially to view the live extras.

Let's hope that if you can indeed view the QOL videos, that they then see sense and after a period of time and add the Absolute Greatest video tracks to the QOL media section.

How on earth can the audio be ok for distribution but the video isn't???  (especially if the videos are owned by Queen Films Ltd and not EMI or Capitol or Hollywood)

Does anybody know in which countries are the videos not available ?
The videos are the only reason why I want to buy the book, so I don't want to get a nasty surprise :(

I think I have got it wrong.  Buyers are only allowed to watch the videos and not download them.  You must put the copy of the CD in the PC to watch the videos.  Refer to:

HA!!!
How easily circumventable!  Anyone with a halfway decent video capture program would have no problem sharing that stuff.

In the end, I'm just curious to see what songs are being shown from what show... so hopefully there will be a list available soon.

White Queen - Rainbow 20/11/1974
Killer Queen - Earls Court 1977
You Take My Breath Away - same
Millionaire Waltz - Houston
Melancholy Blues - Houston
Dreamer's Ball - Paris 79
Rock You (fast) - Japan 79
Entertain You - Japan 79
IILWMC - Hammersmith 79
Now I'm Here - Hammersmith 79
Save Me - Montreal 81
Somebody To Love - MK 82
TYMD - Rio 85
LOML - Rio 85
One Vision - Wembley
Lap of the Gods - Wembley
Champions - Wembley
Rock You - Budapest

Interesting selection... Wonder if they put this stuff online to see what the reaction/interest is in tracks like White Queen, Millionaire Waltz... They could've easily put up a cut 'n' paste job with stuff from the already released DVD's from 81, 82 and 86, instead they actually have spent some time on this... Rainbow 74 looks way better than I remember the video in Box of Flix looked (haven't watched it in 10+ years though so I might be mistaken).

Boohoo. That's what the site has at the moment. And I can't login once more to double-check, as those fucks at QOL won't take my unique code anymore....
